Cross Country Chase Tips

The way this race stands at the moment (3 days before post time) it looks to be very uncompetitive and the pair to concetrate on are TIGER ROLL and EASYLAND

How did we do?

Both of the above ran.

Keith's Tip on the day:

EASYSLAND 15:00  Cheltenham 4/6 – Stayed on strongly when beating TIGER ROLL here in March, had to see a different result today. POTTERS CORNER might be a bit of value for a place.

EASYSLAND ran his race but a mistake at the 27th fence out paid to his chances, he finished fourth. The winner 22/1 shot KINGWELL THEATRE made every yard. Keith's each way shout POTTERS CORNER was third.
