Betting Tip: Fox Trotter @ 12/1 with bet365

Doyle gets the leg up on Brian Meehan’s FOX TROTTER in the mile handicap and the four-year-old, who is the trainer’s sole runner at the track, could outrun his 12/1 price tag now that he steps up to a mile. He hasn’t win since scoring over 6f on his debut and has largely campaigned over 7f since a couple of unsuccessful runs over this trip (one on dirt) at Meydan in the early part of the year. However, he has been shaping a bit better of late and giving the impression he wants further, finishing well into fifth at Doncaster last time after missing the break and again doing all his best work late when fourth (of 15) at the same track in June.

The handicapper has given him a chance by dropping him to a mark of 92, 9lb lower than his peak rating of 101, and he looks very well treated indeed on his juvenile form. The highlights being a fifth (of 23) behind Limato in Redcar’s Two-Year-Old Trophy and a subsequent length second in the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes at Newbury. That was two years ago, admittedly, but he clearly retains some ability and today’s easy mile on good ground might be just what he needs to get his head back in front.
