Betting Tip: Barrakilla @ 4/1 with williamhill

The Paul Nicholls-trained Stellar Notion has been put in as favourite for the 2m4f handicap chase run later on the card (3.45pm). However, he was very disappointing when well backed on his stable debut at the Newbury Hennessy meeting and while he has won over these fences, that was over a year ago now and from a 6lb lower perch than today’s. On balance, he’s opposable.

Let’s take him on with the Evan Williams-trained BARRAKILLA, who has plenty going for him. The nine-year-old would have needed the run when second behind Balgarry at Taunton on his reappearance and then found two miles too sharp at Sandown on his next start, getting outpaced before staying on well into fourth. This is more his trip and he’s only a 1lb above the mark he was second off in a Grade 3 at Cheltenham last season. A similar effort here would suffice and the 4/1 on offer looks fair.
