Betting Tip: Fire Ship @ 14/1 with bet365

Mutamakkin appeared to appreciate this trip when winning at the track last time, having not stayed 1m1f previously, and Sir Michael Stoute’s improver should remain competitive off his new rating of 96. He looks a worthy favourite at around the 5/1 mark, but I’d rather take a flyer on FIRE SHIP at a double-figure price. The seven-year-old hasn’t won since his four-year-old days – a 1m Group 3 at Deauville (good to soft) – but he wasn’t beaten far by Top Notch Tonto in a York Listed race at this time last year and has gradually been finding his form this season, finishing a fair sixth in a class 2 handicap last time. The handicapper has dropped him another 2lb since, meaning he’s now a whopping 27lb lower than his peak rating, and the application of a first-time visor might just be the persuader needs to take advantage. With his trainer William Knight in excellent form (three winners from his last seven runners), we really shouldn’t be too surprised if he pops up here, though an each-way bet is advised.
