Third Intention far too big at 32 for Jewson
As I write, you can bet Third Intention on Betfair at 32 for tomorrow’s Jewson Chase (1.30). I think he should be a third of that price at best and strongly recommend a bet. You should also back him for a place at around 5.8. The best fixed odds price I can find is 22/1 with Sportingbet.
Captain Conan is third favourite here and I think Third Intention would have beaten him last time at Sandown had he not idled halfway up the run-in (CC won by a neck).
I’ve always thought there was a decent race in TI and tomorrow might be it. I backed him last year in The Coral Cup where he finished 8th of 28 under 11st 10lbs. He likes Cheltenham, the ground will be fine, the yard is in form (28/1 winner yesterday) and he is simply too big a price to miss.
