Betting Tip: Ballykan @ 7/2 with betvictor

A cracking novice chase with six of the seven runners having won last time out, albeit a couple – A Good Skin and Vicente – have longish absences to overcome. That shouldn’t stop the latter from running a big race as he’s best fresh and won his reappearance over hurdles at this corresponding meeting 12 months ago. Representing the powerful Paul Nicholls yard and 2-2 over fences (albeit weak events in the spring) he is entitled to plenty of respect, but I’m going to take him on with the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained BALLYKAN. He too has a perfect 2-2 record over fences and greatly impressed when carrying top weight to victory in a decent novice handicap at Chepstow last month, earning the form comments “jumped soundly” and “kept on stoutly on the flat”. Those attributes will stand him in good stead here and he hails from a stable that targets this meeting and can’t stop having winners.
