Betting Tip: Pumped Up Kicks @ 6/1 with bet365

I’m making no excuses for sticking with Skelton for the Plate (3.30pm), though he sets punters a slight puzzle by running two in Ulis De Vassy, who is 2-2 for the yard and may still be well treated on a mark of 128, and the 132-rated PUMPED UP KICKS. The latter therefore has something in common with eight of the last ten winners, in that he is rated in the 130s, and more importantly he looks to be still improving.

A dual point winner in Ireland, she failed to win under Rules when with Gordon Elliott, and he made an inauspicious start to his British career when tailed off at Ascot in March. What she needed all along, though, was better ground and proved that hacking up in a Listed contest at Cheltenham just 18 days after, before winning a novice handicap at Warwick a week later with her head in her chest. This is tougher of course, but like her stablemate she appears to be improving and will be carrying my money.
