Scoop6 Preview for Saturday November 13

It's another tricky Scoop6 puzzle to navigate as we float between Cheltenham and Wetherby with the win fund carrying over £137,988 from last week.

Last week Ceilidh House looked to have knocked out the bulk of remaining ticket holders when coming in at 25/1 in the the third leg. Things went completely pear-shaped in the fifth and sixth legs with 14/1 and 18/1 winners coming home.

The opener is the 1:55 at Cheltenham and we've got a number of well-qualified and recognizable jumpers set to contest this grade 3 chase over 3m3f. It appears as though Any Currency is getting the tepid nod but has only really broke into a 9.0 price on the exchange markets. Character Building has already had a run out this year and did alright with a third-place finish that he'll be looking to build on here.

He should go off in the 13.0 range if the price continues to hold and could be an each-way play if he drifts at all. We'll be having a bash on TRICKY TRICKSTER who drops down from some character building races towards the end of last season- running in the Gold Cup and the Grand National.

He took the Grade 2 Aon Chase last year and has won at Cheltenham. He flourishes on good to soft and can be backed now around 14.5 on the exchanges. Ballyfitz a potential spoiler.

The Paddy Power Gold Cup is the second leg running at 2:35 at Cheltenham. POQUELIN was the early pick and we're standing by Paul Nicholls to pick up back to back Cheltenham scores with both contenders top-weighted.

Long Run is getting all the press, but we like the second place finish in the Old Roan and he likely put on a bit too much in the early going in that one and he try to come in from off the pace here with a bigger late flourish.

Long Run deserves respect but the 4.0 price doesn't make for a great win-only bet. He's one to include on the ticket and Tchico Polos, another Paul Nicholls charge, could be set to progress.

Expect the JD Salinger fans to bet down the 129-rated Nine Stories in the 2:55 at Wetherby in leg three of the Scoop6. We don't expect Ryan Mania's five year-old to come in here and it looks a toss-up between three solid contenders Rio Gael and Viva Colonia are both leading favourites and both have conquered class 3's in their last outings.

They are both solid additions to the ticket but AMIR PASHA is the preferred play. This UAE-bred is coming into form at just the right time, having conquered a score at Carlisle after keeping on well and then switched over to Wetherby just a week later and running a very solid second in a class 3.

It must be noted, however, that the jockey dropped the whip on the run-in. He should progress and his experience on the flat could pay dividends on the final few paces as well.

We're back to Cheltenham at 3:10 for the fourth leg, which boasts 13 in Class 1 listed company. We'll be climbing aboard SUPERCEDE for this one and he's got an impressive record throughout his campaign with four victories, two second-place finishes and one off the board run.

He had his first taste of Cheltenham back in mid-March and was just headed in the final 30 yards and he was so close to a course and distance score. He looks a solid play and the only one that could really give him trouble looks to be Pistolet Noir.

The fifth race is a 3m1f handicap chase at Wetherby kicking off at 3:25. This one looks to be GILSLAND's to win as he searches for his third win on the bounce after ending last season with a pair of victories. He's got a proven ability to stay 3m+ and flourishes against smaller fields. Vodka Brook looks to be giving up a bit too much weight here.

The sixth leg of the Scoop6 heads back to Cheltenham for the 3:40. There is a 19-strong field set to contest this one, which goes a mere 2m110y over hurdles.

This is, of course, one of the trickiest races of the day and though Paul Nicholls' Bold Addition should take a fair amount of money with his impressive 122 lifetime record, we'll be siding with CRYSTAL ROCK.

The five year-old Nicky Henderson charge has been bounced around a bit in the past few months and hasn't finished off the board since mid-August. He's got a proven ability over 2m and looks the singular play here, though we wouldn't fault you to add Bold Addition to the ticket for some final leg insurance.
