Betting Tip: Spiritual Lady @ 5/1 with bet365

One of those valuable sales races with inflated prize money on offer – winning connections will pocket £147,540.00 – and you can bet that all the 22 runners are trying. Most have winning form to their name and are likely still improving, making it a minefield for punters.

However, I’m sticking to my guns as SPIRITUAL LADY, bet365’s 5/1 favourite, has been in my tracker for a good while, with this race earmarked as her target after she crossed the line in front at Chelmsford in early August, when seeing off some good sorts. That could prove a shrewd move by her trainer Philip McBride as she gets in off the lowest weight (8st 1lb) courtesy of the way the race is framed and her fillies’ allowance. Her only defeat in three runs came in Newbury’s Super Sprint, when fifth of the 23 runners, and that gives her valuable big-field experience. There’s more to like as she’s reunited with Silvestre De Sousa and he will be riding at his lowest weight in the last 12 months.

I’m just hoping that her low draw – she’s been handed stall 21 – doesn’t scupper her chances and for that reason I’m going to have a saver on Richard Hannon’s Stormy Clouds (7/1 Paddy Power) as she too gets in off a low weight, has thrived since the fitting of blinkers, and is drawn on the other side of the track in stall 21.
