Betting Tip: Red Charmer @ 11/4 with bet365

They’re racing on the flat at Wetherby this evening (sounds odd, doesn’t it?) and the best bet on the seven-race card looks to be Ann Duffield’s RED CHARMER in the 7f handicap (8.15pm).

The five-year-old is in the form of his life and makes a quick reappearance after narrowly failing to follow up his Beverley win under a penalty at Ripon last Wednesday. He perhaps found the 1m2f trip at the Yorkshire track stretching his stamina and he looks something to bet on now back over his ideal trip and off a 1lb lower mark. Once reassessed, he’ll be racing off a much higher mark than today’s 72 and his trainer’s decision to strike while the iron is hot can be rewarded, with no worries over the fast ground.

It’s a competitive little race, which helps explain why we can back him at 11/4, and he perhaps has most to fear from the revitalised Mercers Row, who carries a 6lb penalty for his smooth Carlisle success, albeit against some modest rivals. Gannicus is also feared, although he appears to save his best for Brighton.
