Betting Tip: Strath Burn @ 9/4 with bet365

Dual Group 1-winning sprinter Kingsgate Native is set to retire after running in the feature Conditions Stakes over 5f at Nottingham this evening – unless he bolts up.

The Robert Cowell-trained 11-year-old is having his 59th start and is rated a 16/1 shot to record what would an eighth career win, to go with umpteen placed efforts at a high level. However, he’s that price for a reason having shown precious little in four stars in 2016 and you have to go back to May of last year for the last time he entered the winners’ circle.

What seems far more likely is a victory for his stablemate STRATH BURN, who is nicely clear on the ratings and should win if he runs close to his best. That hasn’t been the case in three starts this term, including when sent off favourite at Doncaster last time on his stable debut, but he seemed to resent the change to front-running tactics on that occasion and is likely to be dropped in by Oisin Murphy here. The clear form pick on his short head defeat in the Group 1 Sprint Cup last September, he definitely deserves another chance in this company for a trainer who excels with sprinters.
