Betting Tip: Ballinvarrig @ SP with bet365

There are bigger fields at Ascot and the best bet there looks to be the Tom George-trained BALLINVARRIG in the 2m5f handicap chase (2.40pm). The eight-year-old is best going right-handed on soft ground and landed a big payday for connections when winning over 3m at Kempton last Christmas off just a 3lb lower mark. But he’s won here too and his trainer considers him to be better over shorter, so today’s trip looks ideal.

You can make a case for each of his six rivals, the best of whom may be Tenor Nivernais, trained by the in-form Venetia Williams, but the selection goes well fresh and according to George – writing in this week’s Stable Tour – has been “lined up” for this.
