Betting Tip: @ SP with bet365

Paul Nicholls is usually the trainer to follow at the Somerset track and his Rock On Oscar looks certain to go off favourite for the 2m7f novices’ hurdle (1.10pm), having finished a narrow second on his reappearance at Kempton last month. However, he pulled hard on that occasion and is still “very immature” according to his trainer in a recent Stable Tour. With the stable going through a quiet spell and one or two running below expectations, he could be one to take on at shortish odds.

The race doesn’t have much strength in depth which makes me think Harry Fry’s WHATAKNIGHT is a cracking bet at the forecast odds. A prolific winner in point-to-points, he ran well to finish third on his hurdles debut over 2m5f at Wincanton, where he was noted staying on well close home. The winner Final Nudge has gone in again since to frank the form and the selection should do even better over today’s longer trip and with his trainer, a former assistant to Nicholls, in flying form.
