Betting Tip: Blue Point @ 11/8 with betfair

Punters are faced with another short-priced favourite in Charlie Appleby’s BLUE POINT, who is a best-priced 11/8 with Betfair, and his credentials are hard to knock. He showed himself to be a top-class 6f juvenile when an explosive winner of the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes last time and may well have improved past his nearest rival in the betting, Mehmas, who beat him at Goodwood previously when clearly better suited to that undulating track. The flatter, more galloping terrain at York showed the selection in a much better light and similarly Newmarket should play to his strengths too, so I’d expect him to reverse Goodwood form with Mehmas and land his biggest success to date.

But this is no two horse race and with the front pair taking a huge chunk out of the market there is scope for an each-way bet. We’re not short of contenders but it seems the layers are not giving enough respect to one horse in particular, the Mark Johnston-trained THE LAST LION, who is available at 25/1 with BetVictor. He has been on the go since winning the Brocklesby back in early April, but he’s thrived on his racing and his latest efforts, an easy Group 3 success followed by a close second to Ardad in a Group 2 despite losing an iron at the start, we’re his best yet. A thoroughly reliable and consistent performer, he should give backers a run for their money and it would be no surprise to see him hit the frame.
