One of the big races of the day at Prestbury Park is the Racing Post Gold Cup Handicap Chase over 2m 4 1/2f and with 15 runners heading to post we have two each way punts at the race.
The first is the Philip Hobbs trained Dostal Phil who finished last season in some decent form and returning this term was a big eye-catcher in the Paddy Power Gold Cup over course and distance.
Finishing a good second behind a nice type in Grey Diamond and then a better third of 18 in a tougher race at Aintree after that, Dostal Phil showed superb chasing ability in handicaps.
Although unseating his rider when fancied at Punchestown on his final run last term, he put things right on seasonal debut at Cheltenham when a staying on fourth in the competitive event.
Racing off only 1lb higher for this event and having the fitness edge from his seasonal debut, he looks a huge player at a nice price.
