Betting Tip: @ Global Citizen @ 9/2 with bet365

At first glance, GLOBAL CITIZEN looks to have a stiffish task under top weight of 11st 12lb and taking on eight rivals who include four last-time out winners. However, Ben Pauling’s six-year-old looked an exciting prospect last season, including when romping home in a Grade 2 novice at Kempton (good) in February, and he had valid excuses for a below-par effort at Aintree in the spring as the rain-softened ground was against him and was also found to be lame behind afterwards.

At least that effort saw him drop 4lb in the ratings and a mark of 145 for this first venture into handicap company should be well within his compass given there is scope for further improvement. Indeed, it would be no surprise to see him competing in Listed/Graded events before too long and the Christmas Hurdle back at Kempton may well be in the back of the mind of Pauling, who describes him as possibly the best hurdler he has trained. He needs to win this first, mind, and I fancy he’s up to the task.
