Betting Tip: Bossy Guest @ 9/1 with bet365

Last season’s high-class juvenile Ivawood is a red-hot 13/8 favourite for the opener and it’s easy to see why as his form sets a very high standard. Richard Hannon’s colt finished third in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket before filling the same spot in the Irish equivalent and if he runs up to a similar level he’ll be hard to beat, with the drop back to 7f also likely to suit. His jockey Richard Hughes has made him his ‘banker’ of the meeting and he’ll be that for many punters too.

However, that’s all been factored into his price and given he will need some luck in running from his low draw and in a big field of 16, I’d rather back BOSSY GUEST each-way at the available 9/1. Mick Channon’s runner was just half a length behind Ivawood at Newmarket and is now 5lb better off, while he too should be suited by the step back in trip.
