Betting Tip: @ Tuff Rock @ 11/4 with bet365

Guns Of Leros was given an enterprising ride when winning at Newmarket last time, when returning from a lengthy absence, and Hector Crouch may again try and make all in this evening’s 1m4f handicap. However, he might get competition for the lead from Teodoro, who also likes to be ridden from the front, and the pair might set things up for TUFF ROCK, who is getting 8lb from the pair besides.

The four-year-old is making his stable debut for David Simcock, having been switched from Ed Walker, and this race looks much easier than the one he ran in at York last time. He could only finish sixth of the seven runners on that occasion, but he was held up in rear with no great gallop on and it suited those ridden more prominently.

Prior to that he was beaten just a neck at Thirsk over this trip and that was following on from an eye-catching fourth in the Roseberry. That’s very respectable form and if the change of scenery has done him good – he’s unlikely to have gone backwards – he should be able to go close to winning off his current mark.
