Betting Tip: Charles Molson @ 16/1 with paddypower

John Gosden’s Von Blucher has been put in as an early 9/2 favourite and he’ll be the choice of many punters after bouncing back to form last time when just held in an equally competitive 7f handicap at Newbury. However, he looked there in need of a return to 1m, finishing best of all after a sluggish start, and he has now let favourite backers down five times in eight starts.

He’s swerved at the odds therefore in favour of the Newbury third, CHARLES MOLSON, who was just a nose away and is better off at today’s weights when you take his promising rider Mitch Godwin’s 7lb claim into account. The five-year-old had hinted at a return to top form when finishing fifth in a big-field handicap at Goodwood previously and, while he’s hardly a prolific winner (2-26), his next moment in the sun can’t be too far away. Given that he was a a close second (of 16) on his last to this track and with his stable in form (three winners from just seven runners in the last fortnight), that could well be today, though an each-way bet is advised at Paddy Power’s 16/1.
