Betting Tip: Rock Heroine @ 10/3 with coral

Light Breaks let down favourite backers on his Ayr reappearance at the end of April, but Sir Mark Prescott’s charge should do better now he steps up in trip as this son of Dylan Thomas looks an out-and-out stayer. The stable has a 20% strike rate over the past five seasons and all that combines to make him a worthy favourite at around the 5/2 mark.

However, the stable is yet to really hit its stride this season and he faces an interesting rival in ROCK HEROINE. Hughie Morrison’s runner showed a glimmer of promise when finishing third (albeit over eight lengths adrift) to the useful Sugar Boy in a auction maiden here in early April. She stepped up again on that when chasing home Rocco’s Delight on her handicap debut at Southwell last time off the same mark as today’s, and the winner has boosted the form since with two subsequent wins. That was over a mile and this is the furthest she’s travelled, but the daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar looks the type who will be suited by middle distances and her trainer has a healthy 17% strike rate with his three-year-old runners at the track.

Clive Cox’s Callendula is also worth a mention as she’s running over what is likely to be her optimum trip and a reproduction of her close Windsor third of two starts back would put her right in the mix.
