Betting Tip: Alpha Delphini @ 16/1 with betfair

Beverley’s showcase sprint has attracted a decent field of ten and there are some familiar names amongst them. Muthmir, who has been put in as 11/4 favourite is a Group 2 winner (twice) and has been keeping good company since finishing third in last season’s Prix De l’Abbaye. He is joined by a couple of veteran sprinters in Maarek, last year’s winner, and Kingsgate Native, who delayed his retirement when turning back the years to land a conditions event at Nottingham last time. Last year’s runner-up Line Of Reason also has to enter calculations.

However, I fancy we might see a surprise result with rank outsider ALPHA DELPHINI (16/1 Betfair) surely holding stronger claims than his price tag would suggest. A late-maturing type, he is enjoying a breakthrough season at five and is bidding for a hat-trick after wins at York and Ascot, having scored at Musselburgh on his reappearance back in April. They were both handicaps and he scored by narrow margins each time, but he always saves a bit for himself (so he’s never going to win by far) and the fact he’s been put up 8lb for the latest success shows what a strong race it was. His trainer Bryan Smart is enjoying a tremendous month and was the subject of a Stable Tour this week, in which he said of the selection: “he’s incredibly well and looks very happy.” At best over this minimum trip – he has recorded form figures of 151311 over it, with one of the wins coming over track and trip as a juvenile – he thoroughly deserves a crack at this level and won’t be disgraced by any means. Watch him come late on the scene.
