Betting Tip: C Note @ 9/2 with bet365

The 7f handicap run earlier on the card looks tight with only rank outsider Maggie Pink discounted of the six runners. Both That Is The Spirit and Can’t Change It arrive on the back of wins and unsurprisingly they occupy the first two positions in the market (bet365 make them 11/4 joint favourites). However, neither are that consistent and have revised marks to overcome, so I’d much rather be on course winner C NOTE at bigger odds.

Martyn Meade’s charge was highly tried after winning a 6f conditions event here in April and was not totally disgraced in Group 3s at Ascot and at the royal meeting. There wasn’t much wrong either with his close up fourth back into handicap company at Newbury two starts back, but he then ran a stinker when sent off favourite at Lingfield, finding nothing for pressure and finishing a well beaten third of the four runners.

That was simply too bad to be true – perhaps he didn’t take to the all-weather surface? – and I for one am prepared to give him another chance now returned to the scene of his win and on only his second start in a handicap. Certainly, I’ll be surprised if his current mark of 97 is the ceiling of his ability and the application of first-time blinkers might help him reach his potential. With Jim Crowley booked and with his stable boasting a 29% (2-7) strike rate at this venue, I’m happy to open my wallet at bet365’s 9/2.
