Betting Tip: Majestic Manannan @ 13/2 with skybet

It’s another modest Monday in terms of racing action and I’ve decided to concentrate on the two bookies.com sponsored races for lady riders at Carlisle in the hope of getting the week off on a winning note.

They are hardly the greatest betting mediums, admittedly, but the Compare Bookies Odds At Bookies.com Handicap over 5f is competitive enough to ensure a good price if we can land on the winner.

A win for any of the 13 declared runners wouldn’t surprise and several have been running well enough of late to suggest their turn is near. Red Invader is alone in bringing winning form to the table, having scored at Chelmsford and Leicester (under today’s lady rider) before being thwarted on his hat-trick bid at Ayr last time. He could easily be good enough, though he’s 9lb higher than when his winning spree started and bet365 odds of 5/1 don’t really excite.

MAJESTIC MANANNAN is only slightly bigger at 11/2 with the same firm, but we can get 13/2 elsewhere at the time of writing and that’s big enough to tempt me in. The six-year-old burst back to life when finishing second at Thirsk just three days ago in similarly soft conditions, following some moderate efforts, and he is 3lb lower than winning at Pontefract last July. His rider Anna Hesketh has more experience than most of her counterparts and, indeed, she boasts an eye-catching 4-10 (40%) record at this track.
