Betting Tip: Count Montecristo @ 11/4 with bet365

Kevin Ryan has his string firing on all cylinders with 11 winners in the last fortnight and COUNT MONTECRISTO, his sole runner at Ripon (assuming Briyouni isn’t turned out again after yesterday’s odds-on defeat), can be another for him in the 1m1f handicap (3.20pm). A consistent sort last season when finishing runner-up four times and finally losing his maiden tag when making all for an eight-lengths success at Hamilton in September, he looks the type to do even better as a four-year-old and he should come on a lot for his reappearance sixth at Beverley, which was surely needed. With the rust now out of his system, he should make a bold bid from the front as is his style.

Although main market rival Rotherwick is respected, he is proving hard to win with and has looked far from a straightforward ride on several occasions, including when turned over as favourite at Newmarket last time. Besides, his overall record suggests that soft ground will be required before he can add to his win tally and that is not forecast here. The rest are relatively exposed sorts, so this does look a good opportunity for the selection to get back to winning ways.
