Betting Tip: Scorpions Sting @ SP with bet365

There’s a seven-race card on offer with a “national hunt” novices’ hurdle over 2m1f getting proceedings under way (1.45pm). Just seven runners are set to go to post but all have a chance of sorts. That should ensure a decent price for the selection SCORPIONS STING, who needs to bounce back from a pulled up effort at Ayr last time admittedly.

Sporting a hood for the first time that day, he pulled far hard for his own good and, with the headgear now dispensed with, he’s worth another chance based on his close second in a Carlisle novice back in November. He’s failed to trouble the judge in all three starts since but his trainer James Ewart has finally found some form after a long quiet spell, sending out a couple of winners in the last fortnight. With the handicapper dropping the gelding a further 5lb and with Danny Irving taking 7lb off his back, a much better effort is expected.
