Betting Tip: Show Stealer @ 8/1 with bet365

One of those hugely competitive Heritage Handicaps the bookies love, with the majority going 5/1 the field. All are agreed on making Roger Varian’s Taneen favourite at around that price and it’s easy to see why as he broke his duck over course and distance last summer and was an eased down winner at Leicester last time. He has Pattern potential and is in the same mould as last year’s winner Magical Memory, who is now a Group 1 horse. He will need to be a group horse, though, as he’s been raised 12lb to a mark of 101, meaning he carries top weight, and might therefore struggle to confirm from with the Leicester third Bounce on much worse terms.

Henry Candy’s charge is tempting at Betfair’s 10/1, though the suspicion is that he is going to be more of a 7f horse and narrow preference is for the Rae Guest-trained SHOW STEALER. The winner of her first two juvenile starts, she progressed to finish third in a big-field nursery over track and trip last August and looked to have improved again when winning a nice prize over 6f on the Rowley Mile on her reappearance in May. She’s not been seen since but the placed horses have boosted the form in the meantime and the handicapper may have been lenient in raising her just 7lb. Her trainer excels with fillies and is likely to have had this race in mind as a target for a good while, so there’s lots to like about her chances.
