4:12 Sedgefield - Costly Diamond
Just the four runners at Sedgefield for this one, but my nap isn't going to be the likely market favourite. I can understand why people are looking towards Lucky Robin, going off 3lbs less, looking sharp, likes these kind of jumps.
I don't think that's where the value is. I think the value is in backing the Gary Hanmer runner Costly Diamond.
Had a very decent second at Stratford last time around, has gone well previously here at Sedgefield too, over an almost identical trip a few months ago.
The ground was soft that day, and with the rain being forecast all this week I do think it's likely the ground will start to loosen up and suit Costly Diamond more than Lucky Robin.
It's never a massive stretch to back the second favourite in a four runner race, but I think you can take on the favourite.
