The market has clearly forgiven both Minella Indo and Delta Work for their falls in the Savills Chase, but Kemboy was clearly close to his best in that race and his best form might be a notch above anything the fallers have achieved. Kemboy prefers better ground and that might swing things in favour of MELON in the rematch, who looked the best horse in the Savills and an unlucky loser after a blunder two out. Melon has quietly become a top-class chaser and his jumping is a particularly big asset. With Paul Townend on board this time, you’d hope a better ride that holds onto him longer could see Melon to better effect here. He might just be the form horse in the race and looks the wrong price at 9/2.
1pt win Melon @9/2, 15:40 Leopardstown, SundayLeave a comment
