Betting Tip: Legal Art @ 7/1 with bet365

The seven-furlong seller run later on the card (3.30pm) can go to the Mark Tompkins-trained LEGAL ART. The daughter of Dutch Art showed some promise on the all-weather back in February, finishing second on a couple of occasions, and ran better than her finishing position of fifth (of seven) at Carlisle in July would suggest. Trying a mile for the first time, she closed up smoothly from off the pace over a furlong out and looked a big threat, only to fade close home. She also lost a shoe during the race, which wouldn’t have helped her cause.

While she’s not raced since, this represents a big drop in class and the drop back to 7f should suit. Her veteran trainer doesn’t have many runners, let alone winners these days, but he struck with an 11/1 shot at Beverley last week and his runners are always worth a second look these type of races. Strictly on the ratings, she has it to do to beat Richard Hannon’s Wild Tobacco, who is 20lb superior, but that horse has shown nothing in two starts this season and is no value at 15/8, whereas the selection can be backed at a tasty 7/1.
