Betting Tip: Ray Ward @ 7/1 with bet365

Ante post punters have been quick to latch on to the David Simcock-trained RAY WARD, who is now clear favourite at around the 6/1 mark (bet365 go a top price 7/1). That’s understandable as he had no luck in running when finishing sixth of 19 in last year’s renewal, before going on to run second in the equivalent race at Goodwood, and was spotted staying on well on his Newmarket comeback under what looked a sympathetic ride. A strong stayer, he looks certain to be involved at the finish and, whilst I’m almost loathe to tip up the jolly in a 20-runner handicap as competitive as this one, I’ll happily take a 7/1 winner at the royal meeting any day.

The Irish field a strong contingent and the best of their five runners could be Willie Mullins’ Digeanta, while Hughie Morrison’s Fun Mac is entitled to respect after hacking up at Salisbury on his reappearance. Broxbourne could prove to be the best of the Nicky Henderson-trained trio.
