Chepstow 4.30 9 Minty Jones @ 15/2 / 4 Tonis A Star @ 10/1 - 1/2 point each way each horseMy usual assessment here would be a high draw is best, but on softening ground it has sometimes
played in favour of those drawn low, so with scope in the market, I will hedge my draw bets MINTY JONES is solid
and consistent and can handle ground no worse than soft. It likes tough uphill tracks but that extra bit of stamina may
be a big asset here. A nice mark and a Course win adds to the confidence. I looked at a few drawn high but the conditions;
made me leave Rebel Heart off the tips as I just wonder about the Going and the same applies to Davids Beauty after the
rain, I fear both but TONIS A STAR comes bang in to the equation on this Going and has plenty of form off slightly higher
marks on this Going and in slightly better races than this.
