Betting Tip: Franklin D @ 3/1 with williamhill

Despite the big field of 21, this race revolves around one horse, the Michael Bell-trained FRANKLIN D, who is officially 10lb well in under a 3lb penalty after the handicapper raised him 13lb for romping home by six lengths at Newmarket 13 days ago – the weights for this race had already been framed so his new mark will only apply to future engagements. That’s hard to ignore and he’s been fortunate with the draw too having been handed stall one, with only two of the last 12 winners emerging from a double-figure stall. Ryan Moore, who is 1-3 on the stable runners, is booked and there isn’t anything negative to say about this thriving horse’s chances, though a best-priced 3/1 with Hills doesn’t exactly set the pulse racing. The bigger the field, the bigger the certainty – so they say!

Such is the draw advantage that anyone looking to take him on should be concentrating on those horses drawn in stalls two to nine, though you could probably make an exception for Donncha (stall ten) as he is coming off second place in a Sandown handicap that has provided the winner on eight occasions since 1990. Others drawn low worth considering are last year’s winner Belgian Bill (stall nine), who is back on the same mark, and the classy Master The World (five), who has not been seen out since May but has likely been saved for this. A fun bet would be to combine all three with Franklin D in a combination forecast bet (12 bets in total) and that will appeal more to some than just lumping on the favourite.
