Betting Tip: @ Red Balloons @ 13/2 with bet365

Likely favourite Vintage Brut has been running well over 5f last season and was clearly helped by being back on soft ground at Ayr 15 days ago, when looking like the winner until headed close home. But today’s extra furling and likely fast pace might find him out and I’ve no hesitation in putting up RED BALLOONS as an alternative.

Richard Fahey’s filly produced an electrifying turn of foot when upped to 6f in the big sales race at the Ebor meeting, quickening clear to win by three lengths in a time only a fraction of a second slower than the Group 2 Lowther (same track and trip). While allowed to go off at 33/1 after a poor run over 5f previously, there didn’t appear to be any fluke about the performance and her trainer has purposely waited for this race, in which she looks to be reasonably treated with 8st 11lb to carry. Fast ground clearly suits her well and they’re calling it ‘good to firm’ at the time of writing, although some rain is forecast.
