Betting Tip: Novancia @ 10/1 with betvictor

This isn’t much easier than the opener with 15 in-form (mostly) three-year-olds all improving at different rates of knots. Dartmouth is the bookies’ favourite at around 4/1 and it’s hard to argue with that assessment as he was a stylish winner at Royal Ascot (King Bolete fourth, Polarisation sixth, Martiniquaise eighth). A 6lb rise looks fair and he has to go well, but I’m not sure he can give 7lb and a beating to NOVANCIA, who is available to back at three times his odds.

Mark Johnston’s filly is being turned out again quickly following her gutsy nose success at Newmarket last Friday, her fourth start of a career that started only on May 25. That would normally set the alarm bells ringing, but runners from the stable seem to thrive on their racing and this particular filly is clearly improving at a rate of knots. She was entered in a less valuable race yesterday where she would have a penalty and, while this is tougher, she is at least racing off her correct mark. Johnston, who targets this meeting and has won this race twice in the last three years, has three others entered, but this filly looks his best chance by some way and she’ll be carrying my money at 11/1 (Paddy Power).
