As short as 6-4 last week bookmakers have just cottoned on to the fact that the Willie Mullins-trained Ryanair Chase winner Un De Sceaux will bypass Aintree in favour of the Punchestown festival making his odds for the Melling Chase at the Merseyside venue terrible value, even though Betfair Sportsbook are now quoting 11-4 about the talented gelding.Back Sub Lieutenant with Betway

A revision of the ante-post odds for the two and a half mile contest sees Champion Chase runner-up Fox Norton the new market leader at a general 2-1 with God’s Own third best at a standout 7-2 with Skybet. The outstanding value of the race must lie with the horse who chased home Un De Sceaux at Cheltenham – Sub Lieutenant – available at a massive 15-2 with Betway. This week’s racing tip is likely to start at least half of those odds if trainer Henry de Bromhead and owners Gigginstown House Stud let the eight-year-old take his chance a week come Friday.
With the owner’s Empire Of Dirt almost certain to be stepped up in trip the son of Bryan Boru looks tailormade for the Grade 1 chase and with potential rivals Aso, Josses Hill and Uxizandre well behind at the Festival, must have a great chance of going one better than when finishing second in his last two starts – the other when going down by two and a half lengths to subsequent Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Sizing John at Thurles in January.
