The closing bumper (3.30pm) is largely contested by horses who have had a run previously and of these bookmakers are favouring the Michael Smith-trained Black Ink, who has finished runner-up on both his bumper starts to date. He is respected but it could be worth taking a chance on the fitness of Peter Niven’s SAM FAIRYANN, who is making his racecourse debut here.

The five-year-old has the pedigree – he’s a son of Black Sam Bellamy and a half-brother to a hurdles and bumper winner – to suggest he can thrive in this sphere, and his trainer does well with his runners in these type of races. Over the past five seasons, he has had nine winners from 58 runners (16%) and he’s down particularly well here with four of his nine runners (44%) ending up in the winner’s circle. If you’d backed all his runners (all races) here over the same period, you would be showing a very healthy profit of £39.75. His booking of Brian Hughes is another positive and clinches the bet.
