Betting Tip: Aussie Ruler @ 12/1 with skybet

The Salisbury handicaps are trickier as you’d expect but one who could go well at a price is AUSSIE RULER, who carries top weight in the 5f contest (3.25pm). He’s still a maiden after nine starts, but ran some cracking races in defeat at two and ran his best race in three runs this term when fourth over a furlong further at Doncaster last time. Despite that run, the handicapper has dropped him 5lb to a career-low mark of 70 and his burden is reduced further by Eddie Greatrex’s 7lb claim. The young rider advertised his talents when winning a £50,000 handicap on Oaks day and I doubt he’ll be claiming 7lb for long. The selection may well get him one win closer as not only is he well handicapped but promises to be suited by the drop drop back to 5f, with first-time cheek-pieces another potential positive.
