SATURDAY UPDATE.CITY SLICKER.
Punchestown 2 00.
CITY SLICKER should take this. He has been accused of being ”soft” and a bookmakers benefit. I think they are wrong. He is a very good looking animal that will be best on today’s good ground. He has been pulling too hard and failing to get home on heavy ground and stiff courses but conditions today are perfect. He has had a break also which is key to a horse like this.
Willie Mullins does not like to be embarrassed by failing to win with a horse of his ability over hurdles and I imagine Ruby will have strict instructions to hold on to him and deliver late.
He has a huge class edge as far as I am concerned,
Coral and William Hill seem to think he will not win. Let’s try and punish them at their 15/8. 2 pts win at that price.
