Past Winners » Warriors Tale
I am also backing Warriors Tale. Paul Nicholls’ horse was good last time in beating Gala Ball and Cepage, he got out in front and put in a nice round of jumping, with the exception of the second last fence, and he won easily.
That was only a three-horse race, but Gala Ball is a nice progressive sort, and he beat him well. Gala Ball is a danger today, in first-time blinkers and 9lb better off, but Warriors Tale probably won with more than that in hand and, back over the same course and distance, he may be able to step up sufficiently on that run to win again today.
