SPLENDID Chance (Nap) could surprise at decent odds in today's final event.

He was a good winner course and distance last season and was noted going really well in a recent trial.

He has also slipped down to a very handy weight at the bottom of Class Three and has a decent barrier draw in gate four, relatively close to the inside fence.

There are a few others in the race who should carry plenty of tickets like Jollity and Super Tension so this should allow Splendid Chance to drift out to decent odds in the betting.

My best quinella is in race three where I'm very keen on the combination of Gay Pegasus II, Lionheart and Souper. Gay Pegasus II has been running really well and shouldn't mind the drop back in distance whereas both the other two are blinkered for the first which should help their cause no end.
