Betting Tip: Brave Encounter @ 7/2 with betvictor

With nothing grabbing the eye on the flat, I’m turning to a couple of jumpers for potential profit.

Former pointer Midnight King won his first race under Rules at Worcester last week and is being turned out again under a 7lb penalty in the 3m1f handicap chase at Fontwell (2.50pm), in which he carries top weight. The ten-year-old is the one they all have to beat and is priced accordingly at just 6/4, although he was all out to win by two and a half lengths in the end and his jumping wasn’t always fluent.

He’s worth taking on at the current odds and I fancy Jamie Snowden’s BRAVE ENCOUNTER can beat him getting a whopping 23lb. Another former pointer who won three times between the flags, he shaped nicely on his first start for his current stable at Stratford last month, staying on into third over a trip of 2m61/2f. The form of that contest has been well and truly franked by subsequent wins for the second and fourth and the selection, who can race off the same mark, should relish today’s longer trip. Brendan Powell rides.
