Betting Tip: Mime Dance @ 4/1 with bet365

Spotting when a horse is ready to take advantage of some kindness from the handicapper can prove lucrative, and all three of today’s picks look primed to do just that.

First up is the David O’Meara-trained MIME DANCE, who is running off 68 in the 1m handicap at Pontefract this afternoon. The five-year-old has shown very little in five starts for his current stable in 2016 – hence the leniency from the assessor – but he won four times when with Andrew Balding, the latest of those coming over 7f at Chepstow last July when rated 85. It’s surely a question of time before O’Meara gets to the bottom of him and, having campaigned him over 6f, it’s significant that he now steps him up to a mile and a stiff one at that. It should suit and today’s opposition is of a much lower quality than he’s used to now that he’s eligible for 0-70 handicaps. Stable jockey Daniel Tudhope takes over in the saddle for the first time and he can make the most of a good inside draw in stall two.
