VBET’s traders tipped a 28/1 winner last Saturday and now look for the value with three horse racing tips from Kempton and Uttoxeter – live on ITV Racing:
His run at Chepstow last time – when heavily backed but beaten 50 lengths – was simply too bad to be true. Nothing came to light, but it might have been too quick a turnaround following a ruthless success at Fontwell seven days earlier.
He’s always been well regarded at home and this looks a good opportunity to get back to somewhere near his best. A mark of 127 still looks workable in the hands of Josh Moore.
Won three times already this season and showed his quality when a close second in a Grade Two at Warwick in January. Things didn’t go to plan next time up at Haydock, but he did not have the cleanest of runs and seemingly failed to stay.
He looks plenty high enough in the weights, but the return to two and a half miles on soft ground should be considered significant positives. Jockey Kielan Woods also gets on particularly well with him.
Comfortably one of the least exposed horses in the line-up and looked the real deal when he scampered home at Wincanton last month.
An 8lb rise seems on the generous side for a horse that’s run just three times over fences, while everything he has done so far suggests this marathon trip will be made to measure.
That connections swerved the Cheltenham Festival perhaps indicates he has been laid out for this race for a long time. He’s by far the best bet of the weekend.
