Betting Tip: @ Momella @ 5/1 with bet365

I’ve already made a case for backing Equus Secretus in the 3m novices’ hurdle run earlier on the card partly based on collateral form with On The Blind Side and MOMELLA, who came out second best behind that horse on the Old Course here last month, gets the vote for the same reason. The winner has since followed up in a Grade 2 at Sandown and looks a top-class prospect, whilst the selection is dropping into handicap company and is back amongst her own sex, albeit this is a hot contest and an opening mark of 134 looks tough enough. However, that mark could have been worse when you consider that On The Blind Side is now rated 153 and there may well be more improvement in Dan Skelton’s charge after just three starts under Rules.

As a winning pointer, she will make a nice chaser in time but there are more hurdles to be won with her first and this looks a decent opportunity, with no worries over the prevailing soft ground. Take bet365’s 11/2.
