Betting Tip: Saint John Henry @ 5/4 with betvictor

I’m going to stick with a winning combination for today’s nap, the David Pipe-trained and David Noonan-ridden SAINT JOHN HENRY in the 2m7f handicap hurdle at Bangor (due off 3.15pm).

The same trainer/jockey combination successfully teamed up with Twentytwo’s Taken at Exeter yesterday – tipped up here at 7/1, hope you were on? – and the stable overall is absolutely flying right now with eight winners on the board since the Cheltenham Festival.

The selection is Pipe’s only runner at the track and he knows his way round here, having twice won over track and trip. The latest of those was back in February 2015 and he lost his way a little after that, hitting the deck twice. However, he’s completed on his last three starts and strongly hinted at a return to winning form when finishing a close second at Warwick last time in first-time blinkers.

A reproduction of that effort would almost certainly suffice this afternoon against four out-of-form rivals, the best of whom may be Oliver Sherwood’s Weststreet, a winner at Southwell in December and likely to have benefited from a two-month layoff. But the selection looks to have far more going for him and his rider’s 5lb claim may be the deciding factor.
