Betting Tip: Hope Against Hope @ 5/4 with bet365

The market should prove an informative guide and especially over the newcomers. Money for either the David Barron-trained Hotfill, a £46,000 son of Showcasing, or Richard Fahey’s Vatican Hill would be significant with both holding entries in valuable sales races later in the season.

However, it could pay to side with one one of the three runners with racecourse experience under their belt and the pick of the trio is Mark Johnston’s filly HOPE AGAINST HOPE, who went off at just 4/1 for a 6f Newmarket maiden eight days ago, suggesting she’d been showing plenty at home. She finished a well beaten eighth in the end but was pressing the leaders just over 1f out before being badly hampered and snatched inside the final furlong, and the drop back to the minimum trip should therefore help. Her stable is 6-30 (20%) with juvenile runners here for a £1 level-stakes profit of £10.08.
