Betting Tip: @ Irish Roe each-way @ 20/1 with bet365

Global Citizen impressed when slamming a good field at Kempton in February and he’s a worthy favourite on that evidence, albeit the runner-up Scarlet Dragon should be all the better for that experience and could finish a lot closer. Alan King’s runner is tempting each-way at 10/1, but it’s 30 years since a maiden won this and a more enticing option at double those odds is IRISH ROE.

The winner of seven of her 12 starts (three bumpers and four hurdles), she was amongst the favourites for the Betfair Hurdle last time, only to get lost in the hurly burly of that fiercely competitive handicap run on atrocious ground and be pulled up. Given a nice break since, she could well bounce back from that poor showing with the help of her mares’ allowance and on a track that should suit given she travels really well when on song. Her small trainer Peter Atkinson went close to landing a big pot at Kelso on Saturday and he’s said all along that a return to Aintree in the spring was on her agenda, having run well in last year’s mares’ bumper, so she’s unlikely to want for fitness.

A 20/1 shot with bet365, she’s worth a few quid each-way at that price and is also worth considering in the same firm’s ‘without Global Citizen’ market at 14/1.
