Each Way Thief: Gerard Mentor to teach the bookies a lesson at Exeter

Over to Exeter and a highly rated and possibly overpriced Kim Bailey runner with the potential to go onto better things. Not one for odds-on merchants.

Planet Sport are backing one from the only trainer to win the Grand National, Cheltenham Gold Cup and Champion Hurdle, at a price.

3.40 Exeter: Gerard Mentor

The old-school trainer Kim Bailey put up Gerard Mentor as his horse to follow in 2020-21 and while last season didn't necessarily pull up any trees, the five year-old remains an interesting prospect.

The son of Policy Maker finished second last time out in August to a Milton Harris' Sergeant at Newton Abbot, a horse who won again at Sedgefield, meaning the form is pretty robust.

As always, patiently handled by Bailey, Gerard Mentor can come on for the Newton Abbot run and do the business at this fellow West Country course at Exeter.

The good to firm ground at Newton Abbot should be replicated at Exeter and the Mentor could be about to give the bookies a lesson.
