Betting Tip: Byres Road @ 10/3 with skybet

Silvestre De Sousa (on board the fancied Agent Gibbs in the 3.05) also gets the leg up on the Mark Johnston-trained BYRES ROAD in the closing 1m handicap (4.50pm) and I fancy he can boot home another winner, albeit at the shorter price of 10/3. A winner of a mile maiden at Chelmsford back in January, the three-year-old then ran a stinker from the front over 1m2f at the Doncaster Lincoln meeting, finishing stone last, but looked much happier dropped back to this trip under a more patient ride when a close second at Ripon last time.

That was just six days ago but the stable runners are always supremely fit and can take their racing. The handicappers in particular are as tough as old boots and tend to keep on improving as the season progresses, so I’d be amazed if the selection can’t rate a good deal higher than his current mark of 80 before the handicapper finally catches up with him. With fitness on his side and his ability to handle the conditions proven, he must go close this afternoon.
