Betting Tip: @ 11/4 with coral

There’s nothing grabbing my attention over jumps, so it’s the flat meeting at Ayr that provides today’s bets.

I’ll start with the caveat that I could easily have kept my wallet closed today and waited for the better stuff later in the week, but the 11/4 on EDGAR BALTHAZAR for the 7f handicap is just big enough to tempt me. Keith Dalgleish’s gelding has been a model of consistency this season albeit over shorter, but he certainly wasn’t beaten for stamina when second at Catterick last time and he may be capable of stepping up on that on today’s better ground.

His trainer said: “He’s been knocking on the door. He’s been a bit unlucky as he’s got his head in front only once but has been creeping up the weights for finishing second a lot. We’ve worked out how to ride him; he takes a bit of stoking, but if we can get him rolling he’d have a fair chance. He seemed to stay seven furlongs well last time and I hope the nice long straight at Ayr will do the trick.”
