Betting Tip: @ 8/1 with paddypower

A wide open mile handicap to finish off proceedings and that bookmakers are going 8/1 the field tells you finding the winner won’t be easy. The draw might help narrow down the field, though, as the far-side runners (low numbers) have held sway in both runnings and it could be that they get to race on the faster part of the track at this time of year.

If that holds true again, I give a big chance to the Roger Charlton-trained YUFTEN, who will exit from stall one and is feasibly weighted on a mark of 101. The five-year-old has had a chequered career and is with his third trainer, but he once finished second past the post in a French Group 1 when with William Haggas and thrashed the 116-rated Sir Isaac Newton on his second start for Johnny Murtagh back in April of this year. He was having his first start for his new trainer at Newmarket last month over 7f and really caught the eye in finishing late into fourth, less than a length behind the winner. He certainly wasn’t given a hard time by George Baker on that occasion and his kindness could pay off this afternoon in a race which may have been his target all along.
