Betting Tip: @ Diese Des Bieffes @ 6/1 with boyle

A typically competitive renewal with plenty holding chances, but it usually pays to concentrate on those near the head of the market with no winner since 2007 going off bigger than 9/1. A couple of the four qualifiers at current odds, William Henry and River Frost, are classy sorts with joint top weight of 11st 12lb to carry and while that burden isn’t insurmountable, they might struggle to concede upwards of 10lb to likely favourite DIESE DES BIEFFES, who has just 10st 11lb on his back thanks to Mitchell Bastyan’s 5lb claim.

The young conditional has impressed on several occasions this season, riding 23 winners in total, and is having his first ride for Nicky Henderson here. A big-profile winner would be a real boost to his career and his mount looks up to the task having won his first two novice hurdles in comfortable fashion, before proving no match for If The Cap Fits over 2m here on Boxing Day. That was no disgrace as the winner is now amongst the favourites for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the selection, who was doing all his best work late on in finishing a clear second, seems sure to relish today’s extra half mile. I can’t see a rival with a bigger upside so I’m happy to take Boylesports’ 6/1.
