Betting Tip: Tap Night @ 7/1 with bet365

McCoy rides Capard King for his boss Jonjo O’Neill in the extended 3m handicap hurdle for novices (2.30pm) and the gelding is not without a chance, but I’m more interested in the champ’s third and final ride of the day, the Lucinda Russell-trained TAP NIGHT, who gets weight from all bar two of his rivals in the 2m4f handicap chase (3.05pm).

The eight-year-old is on a long losing streak with his last victory coming in a novice chase here in February 2013, but that was one of three course wins to his name and he has been a right chance by the handicapper to add to that tally. Having been as high as 153 in his novice season, he lines up today off just 128 and he’ll find today’s competition far easier than his last two starts in the Kim Muir and Betbright Chase. He may not be as straightforward a ride these days, admittedly, but if anyone can get him to win again it’s the champion jockey (I will miss saying that!) and the 7/1 on offer that he does looks fair.
