Betting Tip: @ Growl @ 8/1 with williamhill

The big betting race of the day is wide open as you’d expect but it could pay to concentrate on those in the bottom half of the draw as eight of the last ten winners were drawn 11 or lower and only dual winner Pepper Lane has defied a stall higher than 13 in that time. So the forecast favourite GROWL looks well berthed in stall four and he deserves to get his head in front after a string of solid efforts in big handicaps since his last success in November 2016, including when third in the Stewards’ Cup last time. While he could only finish ninth in last year’s renewal, he got no sort of run from a poor draw (18) and the race was effectively over when he did eventually get in the clear. Now running off a 10lb lower mark and clearly in good form, I fancy his backers on that occasion can get their money back with interest. Others worthy of a mention are last year’s second and third Pipers Note and Shangai Glory, who are drawn in stalls one and two respectively, although the former wants faster ground ideally and the latter appeared to have a hard race when runner-up at Newmarket last Saturday.
