Betting Tip: The Hon Mackinlay @ 5/2 with bet365

Trainer Ben Pauling is on for his best ever season with 16 winners already on the board and Drumacoo was the latest to advertise his talents when hacking up in a novice chase at the last meeting here. THE HON MACKINLAY, his sole representative this afternoon, could well follow suit in the opening handicap hurdle for conditional jockeys (1.20pm) as he has plenty going for him.

The seven-year-old has been making steady progress in novice and maiden company, including when finishing sixth (of 17) at Doncaster last time. Based on those efforts, the handicapper has allotted him a potentially generous mark of 105 for his handicap debut and he should also appreciate today’s extra three furlongs. Pauling has booked 5lb claimer Liam McKenna and it’s worth noting he won on his sole previous ride at the track.
