Betting Tip: Mediciman @ 10/1 with bet365

The extended 1m handicap for three-year-olds (6.55pm) is competitive, but MEDICIMAN could go well at a price. Henry Candy’s charge is making his handicap debut off an exploitable mark of 78 after three juvenile runs last season. He caught the eye when finishing third on his debut at Salisbury – the form of which has worked out well – and was still green on his next start when beaten less than five lengths into by Folkswood, who now has an official mark of 97 after his win at the Craven meeting. Softer ground was against him on his final start at Newcastle, though he still ran well to finish third and that form has a solid look too.

He looks a ready-made winner of a maiden so it’s noteworthy that Candy is throwing him straight into handicap company, and the trainer was talking him up in a recent Stable Tour, saying “he moves very well loves, top of the ground and looks a classy sort.” It’s possible he might need today’s outing and I would have liked to have seen the stable in better form, but at 10/1 it’s worth taking the risk.
