Betting Tip: @ 4/1 with bet365

There are three all-weather meetings today, which is strange scheduling when you consider that the turf flat season started at Redcar on Monday – in case you hadn’t noticed! It’s all a bit pathetic really but let’s not dwell on that and back a 4/1 winner instead, hopefully.

That looks a fair price for James Tate’s PIRATE’S TREASURE given that the colt is chasing a hat-trick in the 1m handicap at Southwell (4.30pm), where he began his winning run in February having shown promise in maidens previously. His margin of victory was just a neck on and it was only a head that separated him from the second Manjaam (a winner since) at Wolverhampton on his next start, having
been produced late on both occasions.

In truth, he looks a tricky ride and he’d probably stop if getting to the front too soon. However, horses like that tend to stay one step ahead of the handicapper – he’s only 6lb higher than when his winning run started – and he’s also better drawn in stall four than the forecast favourite Secret Insider in one based on results this year. In 6f-1m handicaps of eight runners or more at the track, the inside berth has provided just one winner from 38 runners.
