Betting Tip: Choc'a'moca @ 9/2 with bet365

Staying at Beverley, it could be worth taking a chance on CHOC’A’MOCA coming back to his best in the 5f sprint handicap (2.30pm). The eight-year-old has hardly been catching the eye in his four runs this term, but he tends to come good at this time of year – his June form figures read 011101120831 – and he has won three races over track and trip. His last success came at Redcar last July and he lines up today off just a 1lb higher mark.

His trainer Paul Midgley, who is based nearby, is enjoying a fine season and his sprinters in particular have proved worth following, with the highlight undoubtedly being a 1-2 in Saturday’s ‘Dash’ at Epsom. He has booked Graham Lee to ride the selection and the jockey does well on the stable’s older horses (4yo+) with all his rides since 2010 producing a £1 level-stakes profit of £49.50. He should be able to make the most of what looks a handy draw in stall 2 of 11.
