Betting Tip: @ Machine Learner each-way @ 12/1 with williamhill

So many with chances it’s difficult to know where to start but Joseph Tuite’s MACHINE LEARNER ticks more boxes than most and he’s a very backable 12/1 with Hills, with single figures available elsewhere.

I fancied him quite strongly for last year’s November Handicap only for him to trail home in thirteenth and I perhaps should have seen that coming as he also ran below par on his previous outing at Goodwood. I put that down to the track at the time but, with hindsight, he’d probably had enough for the season and a career-best second in a Premier Handicap at Leopardstown in September may well have bottomed him out. He looked unlucky not to score on that occasion, having been short of room at a vital stage, and he can run off the same mark this afternoon.

We’re having to take his fitness on trust but he won on his comeback last year (on good to firm) and his stable has been in cracking form of late, with three winners and several places to show from 13 runners in the last fortnight. I just hope they go a good pace as he stays further and will be doing all his best work late on. Fran Berry rides.

Thundering Blue, who rattled off a hat-trick last summer and will be all the better for his reappearance run at Epsom, heads the long list of dangers.
