Cheshire Prince 15 14 bet 16 early 10/11 20/1

An interesting race with distance doubts and recent form issues for several. Effectively no value, possibly Cheshire Prince at Betfred’s 20/1. Certainly I am in no rush to get on here.
I have backed Cheshire Prince. He was marginal value at 20/1 but I missed that – Betfred had shortened to 14/1 so I took 16/1 at Totesport. What swayed the issue was the fact that his trainer has won this before and the ‘trend’ sp has been up to 28/1. Marginal arguments but enough to shorten my price by a couple of points had I looked at those factors initially. The fact that Betfred’s offer had been taken suggests there are others sniffing around to pick up what little value there is. That said, I could have had 20s had I got a move on this morning.
10th of 11 at 20/1; ‘led 2f remained prominent, driven over 3f out, soon weakened opened 16/1 touched 20/1’.
