Betting Tip: @ Sykes each-way @ 12/1 with bet365

Nicky Martin sent out a 22/1 winner from her Dorset base last week and that bodes well for the chances of her SYKES (2.50pm), who is having just his second start for the stable having been switched from Philip Hobbs. A four-time winner for his former trainer, three of which were over hurdles, the gelding caught the eye moving strongly on his stable debut at Worcester last month, when only feeling the pinch after the last and fading into fourth. He can be expected to come on for that run, his first since April, and he’s handicapped to win now racing off the same mark as when last successful.

It’s an open race, mind, and of his rivals I’ve got most respect for Evan Williams’ On The Road as he was progressive last season and closed out with a hat-trick of chase wins. The market should be provide the best guide to his fitness on his return to action.

UPDATE – the selection is proving easy to back – out to 12/1 – and there doesn’t seem to be much confidence in On The Road either, with Cobolobo the horse for money (generally 11/4 favourite). I’ll stick with Sykes but best go small each-way.
