Tote Scoop 6 Tips

  • 1.15 – Getareason was running well over course and distance before a bad mistake three from home last time. His mark has been left unchanged, which is an obvious positive as he looked a potential winner that day. He should have more to offer over fences and has to be given a big chance.
  • 1.50 – Shan Blue has created a great impression over fences this term, winning both his races with stylish jumping performances. He should relish this course and distance and will handle the sharp test better than his main rivals. Ground conditions are also in his favour and he’s going to be tough to beat.
  • 2.05 – The Dutchman was returning from a huge absence two starts ago and looked the winner last time before tiring in the dying strides. He’ll relish this stamina test on deeper ground and cheekpieces are added to the mix, which gives him an obvious chance.
  • 2.40 – Mint Condition was aiming for a hat-trick before a narrow defeat at Aintree in a higher grade earlier this month. He’s a pound lower today and Lilly Pinchin takes five pounds off his back. Excellent chance back down in grade, especially up in distance.
  • 3.00 – Clan Des Obeaux has won the last two renewals of the King George, including a 21 length victory over Cyrname in 2019. This is his Gold Cup and he loves this C&D, so a hat-trick of victories in the contest beckons for him.
  • 3.35 – Whatsupwithyou has run well on both his starts this season, latterly when second at Cheltenham. He looked all over the winner before wandering in the dying strides, so a strongly-run 2m 5f at Kempton should really suit. Up five pounds but he’s progressive and should have more to offer.
