Betting Tip: @ Eneko @ 11/2 with bet365

ENEKO was bought for £40,000 after winning on the Flat in France and that looks money well spent based on his three British starts so far. He gave his connections an immediate return when winning a juvenile at Perth on his stable debut in September and he was taking on more than he can chew at this stage of his career when soundly beaten in Listed company on his next start. On his most recent outing at Hexham, he looked the most likely winner turning in only for him to tire – a strong headwind didn’t help him in that respect – and get headed at the last by Cornerstone Lad, who was getting 7lb.

That’s solid juvenile form and he might be able to win another one of those under a penalty, but instead his trainer Keith Dalgleish is throwing him into handicap company this afternoon and making use of the fact he gets a hefty three-year-old allowance from his older rivals. It’s quite a big ask given his relative inexpensive, but he’s clearly going the right way and this is the first time he’s had proper good ground in this country. Whilst he has shown he handles softer conditions, his French win came on good to firm and today’s surface will help bring his Flat speed into play. He also has the services of Brian Hughes.
