Betting Tip: The Cashel Man @ 6/1 with bet365

The card gets underway with a marathon event and only strong stayers need apply. Several of these have something to prove in that respect, but one horse who seems sure to relish such a test is THE CASHEL MAN. David Simcock’s charge was transformed when stepped up to 1m6f last season, winning twice, and he looked even better when winning over 2m at Newmarket in August. He kicked off this term with a second at York before finishing a staying-on eighth in the Northumberland Plate on the Tapeta surface at Newcastle. They tended to finish in a heap in that race and this more extreme test could bring out the best in him, with Jamie Spencer keeping the faith when he could have ridden Chester Cup winner No Heretic. He’s bet365’s 6/1 favourite but that is still a fair price, especially as most of his rivals are either out of form or have their stamina to prove.
