Betting Tip: @ Figeac @ 8/1 with bet365

The class 5 handicap hurdle has attracted a decent field of 12 and with solid recent form thin on the ground, it could be worth giving a chance to Nick Littmoden’s FIGEAC, who was last seen in action on the Flat just four days ago. That would have served as a nice pipeopener for this assignment as he’d been off since May, when finishing a respectable fourth (of 13) in a class 4 handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (2m). That was definitely one of his better efforts since his days in France, where he was a triple winner on the Flat, and the way he was staying on in first-time blinkers (back on today) suggests he might be able to progress again on his first try over this longer trip.

Most of his rivals have little to recommend them but Field Exhibition was a chase winner in July and while he’s yet to be placed over hurdles in 13 tries, he still rates as the main danger with Richard Johnson (third on him last time) renewing the partnership.
