King Erec

King Erec for me is the Nap of the festival despite being backed into a shades of odds on A decent horse on the Flat, the son of Camelot has looked a smart recruit to jumps by winning both his starts. He suffered an injury scare last week with a stone bruise. The trainer has already had a smart winner in Band of Outlaws and King Erec is viewed much smarter. Jockey Mark Walsh must also be brimming with confidence after a fine couple of wins at the Festival so far. Jospeh O’Brien also saddles Gardens Of Babylon but this one has it all to do, Worth noting trainer won this in 2016 with Ivanovich Gorbotov.

Tiger Tap Tap, who was only beaten a neck by Sir Erec at Leopardstown in December, is one of two runners from the Willie Mullins’ stable though King Erec has improved markedly since.

Gordon Elliott is two-handed with Authorizo and Coeur Sublime though those two also have it all to do. Quel Destin is probably best of the Paul Nicholls runners and could run into a place.
