Betting Tip: Penglai Pavilion @ 11/1 with bet365

A typically competitive renewal of this historic handicap and plenty can be fancied. The temptation is to find one at a price and PENGLAI PAVILION makes plenty of appeal at bet365’s 11/1 having run well for a long way behind Jennies Jewel at Royal Ascot, where he simply didn’t stay the 2m4f trip. A three-time winner over hurdles when with John Ferguson’s last winter, he looks to be on a good mark in this sphere, being rated 24lb below his peak, and the forecast heavy ground won’t bother him one bit as he won on such a surface when trained in France. He will be finishing better than most of his rivals, several of whom are doubtful stayers in the testing conditions, but that doesn’t apply to David Simcock’s rapidly improving Desert Encounter. He stays at least 1m6f, will handle the ground and is worth a saver at the sponsors’ 6/1.
