Course form can be absolutely crucial when looking for a winner. If you know your way around a place, you are going to have an advantage over somebody who has never been there before. The same applies to horses – knowing your way around a venue is always a big advantage. Adrian Wall has picked out three former course winners in Britain on Monday. He has formed an tasty accumulator with all three runners, who have solid chances individually. It can be backed using the betslip above.
Sir Mark Prescott trained an Arc winner not too long ago but he also knows how to train one on the National Hunt circuit. Zonisty bolted up in a bumper over course and distance last month, beating a decent Nicky Henderson runner in the process. He has a penalty to carry but still should have the class to get the job done.
Diamond State loves this track, winning a pair of handicaps here last term and most recently he finished a respectable third of five runners over track and trip over fences. Dropped 1lb for his most recent effort, he has a job on to beat Masked Crusader but it will be a tactical little race and he must hold every chance in this field.
Guitar is the only course winner in this field and that has to count for something. He won here over 7f back in January from 1lb higher, and ran his best race since then when beaten just half a length into third at Lingfield when last seen at the end of November. A repeat effort will see him go very close.
