5.30 Cheltenham – Rather Be (e/w) – 2nd 12/1

This chap makes plenty of appeal here although we give plenty of respect to Any Second Now despite being joint top weight, but the Henderson runner has looked potentially very classy and may well have been let in lightly by the handicapper. He was decent over hurdles having won at the Aintree Grand National meeting last season in a Grade 3 Handicap and bar a fall on his 2nd start over fences has looked the real deal over the larger obstacles. He’s only raced at so called smaller tracks, but his performance when destroying the field at Fakenham last time was extremely impressive. He’s proven on the ground and a mark of 143 looks very workable.
