Betting Tip: Champagne Ransom @ 5/2 with skybet

Mark Johnston has his string firing on all cylinders and his CHAMPAGNE RANSOM is handed today’s nap vote.

She wouldn’t be winning out of turn in this afternoon’s extended 1m4f handicap at Beverley (5.30pm) as she’s been knocking on the door for a while now and was denied by a mere short head at Chelmsford on her latest start. She looked sure to win that day having led and gone clear with two furlongs to travel. However, she may have hit the front a little too soon as she green and wasn’t helped by her jockey looking round for dangers, before being collared in the last few strides. Joe Fanning takes over this afternoon and he’s sure to adopt more patient tactics.

That she has the ability to win a race of this nature off her current mark is beyond doubt and she can reverse previous course form with Avenue Des Champs, who had the race run to suit when winning here in May and is now 7lb higher in the weights. What’s more, Johnston’s runners in 1m4f handicaps at the track are always to be feared with his 58 runners in such races since 2010 producing 20 winners (34.5%) for a £1 level-stakes profit of £41.08.
