Betting Tip: Fieldsman @ 15/2 with bet365

I’ve already made a good case for a couple of Ed Dunlop-trained runners earlier on the card, so I’m almost loathe to put one up against his recent Lingfield winner Dutch Uncle here. However, the gelding is not the only last-time-out winner in the race and, while he perhaps deserves to be favourite at around the 11/2 mark, he has nothing in hand over Alcatraz, who finished less than a length behind him at Windsor in April when in need of the run.

He may still do the business but at the odds I prefer the chances of the George Scott-trained FIELDSMAN at Paddy Power’s 7/1. He was a dual winner when trained by Dunlop (ironically perhaps), including a race over 7f here, and impressed when making a winning start for current connections at Newmarket last month, his first start since a gelding operation. This is his first try over 1m but his style of running suggests that shouldn’t prove a problem and he’ll need to win today if he is make it into the Royal Hunt Cup, nominated as a possible target by his rookie trainer.

Of the rest, I’ve a healthy respect for top weight Instant Attraction, who is a rare winner at this track for North Yorkshire-based Jedd O’Keefe and was just touched off in the Thirsk Hunt Cup last time. He’ll have to defy a career-high mark to win, though.
