Miles To Memphis odds appeal each-way over Gustavus Vassa bets among 2017 Irish Cesarewitch tips
Hurdle Bet’s 2017 Irish Cesarewitch tips say back Miles To Memphis odds each-way over Gustavus Vassa bets in the 2m handicap at Nacan on October 8.
The Irish Cesarewitch takes centre stage at Navan on Sunday (17:15) and Miles To Memphis looks decent each-way value at the odds on offer.
Denise Foster’s charge is a course winner over hurdles, who has also landed four of his six starts on the level.
After slamming Magna Carter by six lengths in a 1m 7f maiden at Leopardstown, the eight-year-old showed a good attitude to dig deep and follow-up in a handicap at the same venue when beating Breathe Easy by half-a-length.
Good run at Galway
Miles To Memphis was then far from disgraced when fifth of 20 to Whiskey Sour over an extended 2m at the Galway Festival.
He also ran very well last time out when a fourth of 15 to On The Go Again over 1m 4f at Bellewstown.
The selection kept on well in the latter to be beaten 2 3/4 lengths by a progressive sort, who has gone on to score twice since to complete a four-timer.
Trip and ground ideal
Miles To Memphis is able to race in this off the same mark and looks sure to appreciate the step back up to 2m.
He has won three times and been placed once in five starts over the trip; so, with underfoot conditions also in his favour, everything looks in place for a big run.
Miles To Memphis odds are definitely worth an each-way punt.
Gustavus Vassa bets worth taking on
Gustavus Vassa is set to make his debut for trainer Willie Mullins and has been heavily backed into favouritism in the ante post betting.
The three-year-old has had just three starts, winning on debut for Andy Oliver before running well to make the frame in his next two outings.
He undoubtedly has untapped potential, but now steps up significantly in trip and could find things tough in a huge field for one so inexperienced.
For me, that makes him look plenty short enough and worth opposing at the odds on offer.
