Betting Tip: @ 9/1 with williamhill

Several top stables are represented here with runners who are making their handicap debuts after showing plenty of promise in novice company. Perhaps the most interesting of these is the Nicky Henderson-trained Clean Sheet, who won twice over hurdles last season and is potentially well treated on a mark of of 135. However, the bookmakers are taking no chances, offering him at just 7/2, and the value lies in backing SOLSTICE STAR at 9/1 with Hills.

The six-year-old has won his last four, the latest of which came here in December, and is now on a career-high mark as a result. However, his trainer – writing in a Stable Tour earlier this month – said he had further improvement in him and earmarked this race as his main target, in the hope he will get the testing ground he needs – big tick! He’s 5lb ‘wrong’ at today’s weights due to the presence of top weight Cheltenian, but the 3lb claim of Killian Moore, with whom he has struck up a real rapport, mostly takes care of that.
