Betting Tip: @ 11/4 with bet365

Lucinda Russell has her string in fine form and, hot off a treble at Kelso on Saturday, she can land the 2m4f novices’ handicap chase (3.55pm) with JACK STEEL. An Irish point winner, he has shown progressive form over hurdles and ran a career best on his reappearance over two miles at Perth in September, when finding only the highly regarded Jet Master a length and a half too good.

On that showing he’d definitely win a race over hurdles, but he has the scope to make a better chaser and it seems significant that Russell is pitching him straight into handicap company on his debut, rather than start off in a beginners’ chase. Today’s longer trip is another positive given how well he has been finishing over shorter and the booking of Richard Johnson (only his second ride for the stable) is the icing on the cake.
