Tote Placepot: Richard Birch has a pair of bankers in his Exeter perm
There was much to like about the victory of Jonjo O’Neill’s promising stayer Henry Gondoff at Wetherby in January.
Rockstar Ronnie, the 11-length runner-up, has since franked the form, so let’s bank on Henry Gondoff in leg one (12.30) of the Exeter Placepot.
Killer Kane is the second banker when he tackles leg three (1.35), but leg four (2.05) looks less straightforward.
Amarillo Sky compromised his chance by pulling too hard at Warwick. If he proves more amenable to restraint, a mark of 115 ought to not prove beyond him.
Fergal O’Brien is a dab hand at getting horses to win first time after a long absence, so Paxman, who once changed hands for £110,000, also merits inclusion.
