Betting Tip: Shy John @ 7/2 with betvictor

Good ground is also in evidence at Kempton and the best bet on the seven-race card looks to be SHY JOHN, who is bidding to follow-up a recent Taunton success off just 4lb higher in the 3m handicap chase (4.00pm). That weight rise is wiped out by his rider Lewis Gordon’s 7lb claim and the young conditional has already guided him to a head second to Shuil Royale at Ludlow back in February. That looks decent form as the winner has gone in again since and, now he’s got his head in front, further improvement is likely from the lightly-raced nine-year-old. He’s up in class here, admittedly, but gets weight all round and, just as important, he is proven on the surface, while most of rivals have question marks over them.
