24 horses go to post for the Byrne Group Plate and Bayllynagour (4/1, Betfred) could be very well in for trainer David Pipe.

The seven-year-old landed a gamble for his new yard in a ten runner 2 ½ mile handicap at Warwick last month and he will be incredibly hard to beat if he is in the same mood on Thursday.  However, 4/1 looks a very skinny price in such a competitive handicap and it isn’t hard to see why punters are looking elsewhere.

Hunt Ball (8/1, Ladbrokes) would be a hugely popular winner, twelve months on from his victory at last year’s Festival, but it would be some performance to score off top-weight and CANTLOW (8/1, Coral) looks a more likely candidate.

Paul Webber’s gelding finished third in last year’s Pertemps Final and he has kicked on since he has switched to the larger obstacles this season.  His mark looks very workable and he has won impressively at Plumpton and Taunton on his last two starts.  

It looks like connections have spent the season aiming their horse at one of the Festival handicaps and it’d be no surprise to see him well backed before the off.

Nick Wilby’s selection – Cantlow (8/1, Ladbrokes)
