Betting Tip: Purple 'n Gold @ 11/2 with bet365

The 2m3f handicap hurdle run later on the card is a tight affair, but David Pipe’s PURPLE ‘N GOLD has run well in defeat on his last two starts, including in a class 2 at Southwell last time when he was just four lengths behind the winner Ballykan. He’s a bit of a character and is not one to invest heavily in, but he wins his fair share mostly around this time of year and, with his stable in good form, he may well take advantage of this drop in grade.

The 11/2 on offer that he does looks a tad generous and he rates better value than likely favourite Roman Flight, who was fortunate to snatch victory over 2m1f here last month after the leader at the last made a terrible mistake and has since been well beaten off his revised mark. A bigger threat may come from the Kerry Lee-trained Definite Future after his confidence-boosting win at Worcester last month, albeit in a lower grade race and off effectively a 19lb lower mark.
