Betting Tip: Churchtown Champ @ 7/2 with betvictor

The two British jumps cards are fairly ordinary in comparison but the 2m4f novices’ hurdle at Leicester (2.35pm) is being contested by some decent types, and Dan Skelton’s CHURCHTOWN CHAMP is perhaps the most interesting of them all. An impressive winner on his sole start in an Irish point, he showed distinct promise in two starts for Michael Winters (a bumper and a hurdle) before crossing the Irish Sea for what must have been a hefty price tag. The fact Skelton had him entered in the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle later this week suggests he’s been showing up well at home, and this is far easier pickings. A strong travelling sort who will be suited by 3m in time, I’d expect Harry Skelton to make plenty use of him and hopefully he can make all.
