Betting Tip: @ 8/1 with bet365

A more speculative wager is going on PEARL ICE in the proceeding 1m handicap (8.10pm) in the hope he can show some of his old form and take advantage of a slipping handicap mark. He needs to step up markedly on what he’s shown in two starts this term, but they were competitive handicaps at Newbury last time and here in April, and he will find this assignment a lot easier.

His trainer Charlie Fellowes, writing in his weekly RFO column, believes he might be a Group horse masquerading as a handicapper and it’s only a matter of time before he “unleashes” his talent. That may or may not be this evening, but I don’t want to miss out at the 9/1 on offer and it’s worth noting he did win on the surface as a juvenile. A new jockey in Frederik Tylicki could also spur him on to put his best for forward. Small stakes, mind.
