Betting Tip: Western Hymn @ 4/1 with bet365

Roger Varian’s Intilaaq is far better than he showed when only eighth in the Dubai Turf on his March reappearance and is likely to improve as the season progresses. However, the forecast good ground might not be quite as fast as he likes and, given his skinny odds of 13/8, I’m going to take him on with John Gosden’s WESTERN HYMN, who runs his best races here and is value at bet365’s 4/1. He found the short Chester straight against him when beaten a length by the smart Cannock Chase last time out – still a cracking effort – and will have more time to wind up his effort this evening on a track where his form figures read 11132, with one of his successes coming in last season’s renewal. He escapes any sort of penalty here and that can’t be said of Roger Charlton’s Time Test, who might need his first run back besides.
