Betting Tip: Monsieur Joe @ 14/1 with bet365

Paul Midgley supplied the first two home – Desert Law and MONSIEUR JOE – 12 months ago and, with the North Yorkshire stable finding some form of late, there is every reason to think they can again be involved at the finish. Monsieur Joe is preferred of that pair as he has done little wrong in two stars this season, whereas Desert Law has hardly been sighted in his three runs, and ground conditions are more in his favour. It was too quick for him in a Group 3 at Deauville last time, though he was still only beaten less than five lengths and the stable wasn’t in such good form then. Now back in handicap company and with his British record in such races standing at an impressive six wins from 18 starts (33%) for a £1 level-stakes profit of £45.00, he is crying out to be backed each-way at Paddy Power’s 18/1. Have a saver on stablemate Desert Law if you must – he’s 16/1 with the same firm – as he could well bounce back to his best here.

Of the rest, you have to respect recent York winner Duke Of Firenze under a 4lb penalty, especially as he won the 2013 renewal (stone last in 2015, though). He’s drawn 20 (of 20) and a high draw is usually best on the 5f track here, though plenty of low-drawn horses have run well in this – Desert Law exited from stall one last year – so it’s probably best to not get too hung up over the draw.
