Betting Tip: @ Black Narcissus each-way @ 16/1 with paddypower

The closing mares handicap hurdle over a few yards shy of 3m doesn’t look the best betting medium on paper, but there is enough juice in the price of Alexandra Dunn’s BLACK NARCISSUS to get involved to small each-way stakes.

The nine-year-old has largely struggled since winning a handicap chase last February, but she’s dropped down the weights as a result and is now 1lb lower than her last winning mark over hurdles. She had a wind operation after pulling up at Uttoxeter in December and her subsequent fifth (of 14) at Towcester was certainly an improved effort, suggesting she was coming right again. With her stable in good nick – two winners (4/1 & 10/1) in the last fortnight – and with Richie McLernon (12 winners for the yard) booked, she looks capable of outrunning her 16/1 price tag.
