Betting Tip: Carole's Destrier @ 12/1 with betvictor

Nicholls and Mullins both fire a couple of arrows at this famous handicap – still known as the ‘Whitbread’ despite the bet365 association – and the former may have an ace up his sleeve as his main hope Southfield Theatre looks to have solid claims and is favourite (15/2 best with Paddy Power) with all firms. A top-class novice chaser last winter, with three wins and an arguably even better effort when second in the RSA Chase, he can be excused all three defeats this term and has most likely been kept for this. He’s certainly preferred to the two novices near the head of the betting, Henri Parry Morgan and Measureofmydreams (Mullins’ best hope), as experience counts for plenty in this race.

However, I’m drawn to the Neil Mulholland-trained trio and CAROLES DESTRIER is just preferred to stablemates The Young Master and The Druid’s Nephew, with his success in the London National, run over course and distance in December, the clincher for a bet. The eight-year-old was pulled up at the Cheltenham Festival last time but three miles on good ground was never going to suit, and all his best form is when going right-handed. He never got to show the benefit of a wind operation there but, with today’s conditions more to his liking, he may well be capable of a career-best effort.
