Betting Tip: @ Dame Rose @ 11/2 with betfair

Just the five runners for the 2m Morebattle Hurdle but it’s a tight contest nonetheless. Last year’s winner Cyrius Darius should again go well, although he has a penalty to overcome this time around and he might struggle to give 6lb to Chti Balko, who finished behind Katgary in a Haydock handicap last time but is much better off at these weights. Better Getalong, who won the bumper on the his card 12 months ago and has won twice over hurdles since, is another to consider.

However, the final pick goes to Richard Hobson’s DAME ROSE, whose form this season, which includes a Listed success at Newbury in November, puts her right up there with the best novice mares in the country. Her only blip came over in a Grade 1 over an extended 2m4f two starts back and she seemed far happier back over this trip at Doncaster last time, when finishing fourth to Maria’s Benefit. She’s in three races at the Cheltenham Festival and was also given an entry in Saturday’s Kingwell, but this assignment is more realistic and with no worries over the prevailing heavy ground, she can make the most of the weight she receives from her male rivals.
