Betting Tip: Tiger Mountain @ 10/3 with bet365

When betting on bumpers it usually pays to heed the market and there seems to be some confidence behind Malcolm Jefferson’s TIGER MOUNTAIN, who has put in as an early favourite for the closing bumper at Hexham (due off 4.50pm) on his racecourse debut. That may have something to do with the opposition as none of those that had a race have shown much, while the other debutants hail from stable’s that are not known for first-time-out winners.

Not so Tiger Mountain whose trainer is operating at a healthy strike rate of 26% (8-31) rate in bumpers this season and who quite recently sent out Only Orvieto to land one of these at Catterick at the first time of asking. Since then he’s had a further four winners from just a handful of runners and all were ridden by Brian Hughes, who gets the leg up this afternoon. With the ground riding soft, this will take some getting and the selection, who has plenty of stamina in his pedigree, should be in his element.
