Unexposed second-season chaser seems just right type for Caspian Caviar
Good Boy Bobby
Buy at 11 on the index
A bonus of five for buyers on the index for the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup makes it an attractive option and the best buy is a horse who, in the strictest terms, has no right to reverse form with Master Tommytucker.
If Master Tommytucker and Good Boy Bobby were to have a replay of their Haydock meeting, with an 11lb pull to the last named, Master Tommytucker would still go off a short-priced favourite. The difference now is the conditions.
Master Tommytucker is a free goer who may find not getting his own way to be a little discombobulating. On the other hand, Good Boy Bobby is a cruiser, like stablemate Al Dancer, who should be suit by this test.
The selection is well treated on his novice form at this meeting last year. He was beaten just over a length by Mister Fisher, who won Friday's rearranged Peterborough Chase here. These appeal as being the conditions under which he is most likely to find the residual improvement it is felt he is capable of.
Sporting (50-30-20-10-5 (5 bonus for buyers only)): 10-13 Cepage, Al Dancer, 9-12 Master Tommytucker, 8-11 Windsor Avenue, Midnight Shadow, Good Boy Bobby, Coole Cody, 5-7 Saint Sonnet, Chatham Street Lad, 4-6 Benatar, Champagne Mystery, Romain De Senam, 3-5 Southfield Stone, Annie Mc, 2-4 Huntsman Son, Militarian, 0.5-2 Drumconnor Lad
Match bet: Al Dancer/Coole Cody 0.5-2
