Betting Tip: Under Attack @ 5/2 with bet365

There are five British meetings to bet on today plus Naas in Ireland, with the evening card at Sandown providing today’s best bets.

The nap runs in the 7f maiden (due off 7.10pm) in the shape of Sir Michael Stoute’s UNDER ATTACK, who showed he had a race of this nature in him when a staying on fourth on his Newmarket debut last month, with the third John Splendid franking the form when winning at Haydock subsequently. Easy to back that day – he was sent off at 33/1 – it was no surprise to see him run green and get behind, but the way he kept on nicely when meeting the rising ground was very encouraging for his future career.

As a son of Dubawi out of a Listed-place 1m4f winner (he’s a close relation to the same stable’s Hi Calypso and Warringah and other decent sorts), he’s not likely to reach his full potential until running over middle distances next season. That said, it would be a surprise if he can’t win a maiden at least this term and that may well happen this evening, with the stiff 7f helping to bring his stamina into play. He has nothing to fear from the Newmarket sixth Et Toi and a bigger danger may be Cymric, who was far from disgraced when finishing tenth in the Chesham Stakes on his race course debut.
