Betting Tip: Fidra Bay @ 11/2 with bet365

The Mark Johnston-trained Ordinal is chasing a hat-trick after a couple of wins on the all-weather and is sure to be popular with punters. However, he’s up another 6lb after dead-heating last time and with no guarantee that he will transfer that form to turf (well beaten on his two efforts to date), I’m not exactly rushing to back him at a best-priced 5/4.

It’s a bad race and he may still win of course, but FIDRA BAY has gone close the last twice in similar handicaps at Redcar and Thirsk off today’s mark and another step forward – a real possibility given that he’s had just five career starts – might just see him get off the mark for his in-form stable. Small stakes, mind, and I do hope this race doesn’t prove to be a ‘getting out stakes.’
