Betting Tip: Moorlands George @ 5/2 with bet365

Over jumps at Fontwell I like the look of Jeremy Scott’s MOORLANDS GEORGE in the 3m1f handicap chase, in which he faces seven rivals. Only one of these can be ruled out with any real confidence, but that only serves to inflate the price of the selection, who was value for far more than his one-length winning margin over the well-handicapped Thinger Light at Warwick 25 days ago. He could be called the winner a long way out at the Midlands venue before idling close home and, while he’s up 9lb in the weights, there is always certainly more to come after just four chase starts. The tongue-tie he’s worn on the last three of those (and back on today) has made a huge difference to his breathing and he’s reunited with Gold Cup-winning jockey Nico de Boinville, so there’s lots to like.
