The opening race is the “Matchbook Betting Exchange” Handicap Chase. A huge field goes to post but it looks like current favourite SINGLEFARMPAYMENT is the horse to be on.
The eight-year-old gelding trained by Tom George like many of these is having his first run of the season. However, his last run at Cheltenham back in April in a similar race to this was solid form.
Under the hands of Richard Johnson he went down by a short-head and this race looks weaker. His mark looks fair and he can confirm favouritism here.
