Betting Tip: Light Of Asia @ 2/1 with bet365

The other horse worth backing is Alan Swinbank’s LIGHT OF ASIA, who can show the benefit of his season-opener by landing the 1m3f handicap at Windsor this evening. Gelded since the end of the 2014 season, the selection travelled well for a long way on his seasonal reappearance at Catterick 19 days ago until lack of fitness told. With that run under his belt, he should be ready to take advantage of what looks a lenient handicap mark of 72, which is just 2lb higher than the one he won off at Haydock last September, when beating 15 rivals.

Windsor doesn’t suit every horse so the fact he finished an excellent second here last June dispels any worries on that score, and this looks a good piece of placement by his trainer who is always to be respected when he travels south from his North Yorkshire base. The fact Light Of Asia is his only runner and he’s gone to the trouble of booking the criminally under-used Kieren Fallon are further pointers to a big run, and it will be disappointing if he can’t beat eight rivals, the majority of which have question marks over them.
