Betting Tip: @ Natural Scenery @ 11/1 with bet365

Bookmakers are taking no chances with Roger Charlton’s Withold, who is no bigger than 9/2 at the time of writing, and that’s no surprise as they took a hammering when the gelding landed a monumental gamble in last season’s Cesarewitch. However, he’s not been seen out since and while he could still be very well treated on a mark of 99, his long absence and the fact he was beaten off a mark of 79 on his sole all-weather start, makes me want to take him on.

Were not short on alternatives either and while others have much stronger claims on recent form – Lagostevegas and Amazing Red being the two last-time-out winners in the field – I’m happy to take a chance on Saeed bin Suroor’s NATURAL SCENERY at a double-digit price. Her 2018 form figures of 3549 don’t scream ‘winner’, admittedly, but she probably ran as well as could be expected in a Meydan Group 2 on her most recent outing at the end of March. She should have benefited from a break since as she goes well fresh and I suspect her connections have always had this race in mind for her following her close second in this race last year off a 2lb higher mark (she has a 3lb pull with the winner Higher Power). That was taking her form figures on Tapeta to 1112, with one of her successes coming over this track and trip, and that her stable has burst into life in the last week (four winners and three seconds) clinches the bet. If only she was better drawn (Paul Hanagan will come out of stall 14), but she ticks every other box.
