Betting Tip: Vieux Lion Rouge @ 6/1 with betvictor

It was painful to watch Knock House win here last time as I’d backed him on his previous start in a weaker race at Fakenham, in which he could only finish second. He’s clearly still improving at the age of six, but good ground seems important to him and I’m going to take him on with another improving six-year-old, VIEUX LION ROUGE. He is chasing a four-timer over fences and the handicapper may have let him off lightly by raising him just 7lb for his latest success at Haydock as he was in command a long way out before idling. Given that was his first start since June, he’s fully entitled to come on for the run and he seems to go on any ground. He’s run well here previously, albeit over hurdles.
