Betting Tip: Birchwood @ 6/1 with williamhill

Richard Fahey’s BIRCHWOOD has a little to find on the ratings with the older front pair of Dutch Connection and Home Of The Brave, who dispute favouritism, but not much and he was back in the winners’ enclosure over this trip at Chester last time after a couple of below-par runs. A first-time visor seemed to do the trick on that occasion and it needs to work again here, but he’s proven at this level and wasn’t beaten far behind Galileo Gold in last year’s Vintage Stakes run over track and trip after a far from trouble-free run through the race. His weight-for-age allowance can be seen as another positive with three-year-olds exceeding expectations once you factor in their representation, achieving 30% of the winners from 21% of the runners. Home Of The Brave is a proper 7f horse, whereas Dutch Connection is dropping back from a mile, and he looks a big danger. He’s priced accordingly, though, and the selection rates decent value at BetVictor’s 6/1.
