Betting Tip: Mart Lane @ 12/1 with bet365

The jumpers are in action at Stratford this evening and three in particular catch the eye.

It’s been a long time since MART LANE saw the winners’ enclosure – September 2014 to be exact – but the 11-year-old has dropped to a very good mark as a result and he could be about to take advantage in the 2m4f handicap chase (6.50pm) with Richard Johnson booked.

Rated 142 at his peak, he is running off 103 here and, while he’s probably not as good as he once was, he should strip fitter for a recent spin at Cartmel where he was making his debut for Sophie Leech after nearly a year off. Now returned to the scene of one of his four chase wins and with the champion jockey doing the steering, he looks well worth chancing at a double-figure price. Small stakes, mind.
