Betting Tip: Robin Park @ 11/4 with bet365

The other one to back at the same price is the Richard Fahey-trained ROBIN PARK, who is bidding to follow-up her Nottingham success of ten days ago under a 6lb penalty in the closing 6f handicap (5.15pm), before she is reassessed. The handicapper is bound to clobber her for a four-length success at the Midlands venue, where she seemed to appreciate the cut in the ground, and I doubt the penalty will stop her going in again in receipt of weight from all her rivals. Making her stable /seasonal debut, having been placed in all three maiden starts for Clive Cox last summer, she showed blistering pace to grab the stands’ rail and the race was pretty much in the bag by halfway. This is tougher admittedly, but it often pays to follow a fully in form and, if the weather forecast is correct, she will again have the ground to suit.

UPDATE – the forecast rain has not materialised and as a result Robin Park has proved easy to back, drifting out to 9/2. She may still win but I’m now leaning towards Roger Varian’s Queen’s Pearl, who was my original fancy on account of the fast ground and can be backed at 11/2 with Sky Bet. The term ‘weather forecasters’ is surely a breech of the Trades Descriptions Act!
