Betting Tip: Teofonic @ 5/2 with bet365

Mark Johnston has a nice crop of early two-year-olds for 2016 with 18 juvenile wins already on the board at a strike rate of 20%, and he looks to have found a good opportunity for TEOFONIC to get off the mark at the second time of asking in the opening novice auction fillies’ stakes at Pontefract (due off 6.45pm).

The daughter of Teofilo was easy to back on her racecourse debut over 6f at Hamilton and ran pretty much as the market predicted, finishing fourth of the ten runners. However, having shown signs of greenness and getting outpaced three furlongs out, she really picked up the bit and nothing was finishing better than her at the finish. A half-sister to six winners and an Italian Oaks second, she looks to have inherited some of her siblings’ talent and the stiffer uphill finish at this track will suit her.

Snuggy is perhaps the most interesting newcomer and should be watched closely in the market, but experience counts for plenty in these races and that gives the selection an edge.
