2.25 Aintree – Three Stripe Life – WON 5/2 (Adv 3/1)

Sets a high standard for the rest to aim at after an excellent 2nd place to Sir Gerhard in the Ballymore at Cheltenham, where he appreciated the step up in trip. He’d previously shown very strong form over 2 miles, again when runner up to Sir Gerhard, so this easier course over a similar trip to Cheltenham won’t be an issue. Quite surprised to see him at 3/1 and he looks to be a very strong favourite.
