Betting Tip: Gaye Memories @ 10/1 with skybet

Dan Skelton is another trainer who is going through a purple patch right now and his GAYE MEMORIES could be the answer to the closing 2m5f mares’ handicap hurdle (5.20pm). She’s not been the most consistent of mares in the past and has not run since finishing stone last at Ascot on November. But the testing ground was to blame for that effort and when she gets her conditions she’s very useful, as she showed when winning on good ground at Stratford and Uttoxeter last spring.

She lines up today off just a 4lb higher mark than her last winning one and, given she’s won over further (3m) and seems best when ridden prominently, I’d expect her rider Harry Skelton to be fairly aggressive on her. Her lack of a recent isn’t that much of a concern considering she can go well fresh and the form of her stable, with nine (three of the last four) stablemates obliging in the last fortnight. It’s a competitive race mind but the upsides to that is we get to back her at double-figure odds.
