Betting Tip: @ Lastbutnotleast @ 15/2 with bet365

Nicky Richards has a 25% strike rate in handicap hurdles here so his pair of Takingrisks and Western Rules, both winners last time out, need giving plenty of respect, as does Stayers’ Hurdle also-ran Donna’s Diamond, who has been put in as favourite despite top weight.

However, I think they’ve all got to go some to beat Donald McCain’s LASTBUTNOTLEAST, who looks a cracking bet at the 15/2 on offer at bet365. She’s been running over fences this season and hasn’t been seen out since an odds-on flop at Leicester in January, when she was probably still feeling the effects of a very hard race when winning at Haydock three weeks previously. The rest will have done her good then and while she is switching back to hurdles, she is 3-3 in this sphere, culminating in a defeat of the progressive Happy Diva in a Listed contest at Doncaster in March 2017. She’s now won five of her eight starts under Rules on ground no faster than soft, so the forecast ‘heavy’ is ideal, and I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if her in-form trainer (5-19 in the last fortnight) has had this race in mind for her for a good while.
