Betting Tip: Goodwood Moonlight @ 7/1 with betfair

The third and final pick, the Ian Williams-trained GOODWOOD MOONLIGHT in the 2m handicap hurdle, is more of a hunch than anything and a market check is strongly advised as I’d be concerned if he’s a big drifter. But the four-year-old is making his handicap debut after showing very little in his three hurdle starts so far and he could be well treated on a perch of 85. That he has some ability is undoubted as he was a winner on the all-weather back in January (when sent off favourite) and he also ran well on the level at Goodwood in the summer (1m1f), finishing second of the 15 runners.

His stable not adverse to having a tilt at the ring and if he’s ever going to win over hurdles it’s likely to come at a tight track like this one and on fast ground, giving him every chance of staying. That connections are fitting a tongue-tie for the first time also suggests he’s not just having another run out and provides an excuse for the improvement in form at the inevitable Stewards’ enquiry, should he oblige.

Last week’s Bangor winner Tempuran is the obvious danger under a 7lb penalty, but he’s a skinny-looking 11/8 and gives the selection 19lb.
