Betting Tip: Manolito De Madrid @ 9/4 with bet365

The in-form Andrew Balding could be worth following at Epsom this evening with both his runners holding solid claims.

The Hampshire-based trainer has struck with five of his last 11 runners (46%) in maidens at this track and backing them all would have yielded a whopping £32.16 profit to £1 level-stakes. So his MANOLITO DE MADRID is worthy of respect on that stat alone when he runs in the 7f median auction stakes (6.45pm), and the son of Soldier Hollow also has a promising debut run at Sandown to recommend him. A hard puller in the early part of that race, he was spotted picking up nicely late on to run into fifth spot despite looking green and giving the impression he would be better for the experience.

He certainly looks best of those that have already had a run and the biggest threat may come from the William Haggas-trained newcomer Novoman. The market will prove the best guide to his chances, but the selection’s experience should count for plenty and he can initiate a double for Oisin Murphy.
