13:55 - Arkle Novices’ Chase
First and foremost I have to say I am a huge fan of Dan Skelton’s Allmankind and the five year old has done very little wrong in winning his last three starts. He’s bound to give Shishkin one of his biggest tests to date but aside from the Skelton runner the remainder shouldn’t give the favourite any problems.
Unfortunately with just six set to go to post the idea that Eldorado Allen (at a current price of 50/1) may have been a decent shout to finish in the top three is now scuppered with only the two places on offer.
An obvious choice I understand but it’s obvious for a reason, Shiskin looks potentially the heir to Altior’s thrown and baring an incident should continue his winning streak.
I’d be shocked if Henderson’s runner didn’t add to his plethora of success.
