Betting Tip: Dark Red @ 9/4 with skybet

Having sided with the Ed Dunlop-Ryan Moore combo in the first, it’s hard to resist their representative, DARK RED, in this class 2 handicap, especially as the gelding is seeking a four-timer after wins at Chelmsford, Chester and over track and trip on his penultimate start. He’s up another 5lb here and the handicapper is sure to catch up with him eventually, but he’s clearly improved for a gelding operation over the winter and for the step up to this trip, so his winning run might not be overnight just yet. The ground, which is expected to ride on the easy side of good, won’t inconvenience him either. He rates a solid favourite and Paddy Power’s 5/2 is standout, though it could be worth a scout around in the morning once the bookies’ price war begins in earnest.

Felix De Vega, whom the selection beat at Chester last time, has to be feared as he is weighted to turn the tables, while the 2014 winner What About Carlo is also respected with the ground in his favour.
