Betting Tip: Eshtiaal @ 15/8 with skybet

You won’t go far wrong following County Meath-based trainer Gordon Elliott at the Scottish track as he rarely leaves empty handed, and all his runners at this meeting will have been primed. His Skilled looks a steering job in the opener at long odds-on and he can double up with ESHTIAAL, who is a far more backable 11/4 [backed into 15/8] in the closing 2m4f handicap hurdle (5.25pm). A decent performer on the flat when with Brian Meehan, he’s taken time to find his feet over hurdles, but the penny dropped in a Wexford handicap just 13 days ago when finishing second (of 16) to a well-backed favourite. With conditions identical here, he’s strongly fancied to get his head in front under Richard Johnson who has a 36% strike rate for the stable, which rises to 41% (7-17) over hurdles.
