Betting Tip: @ 7/2 with coral

I was a little surprised to see TIGER O’TOOLE as short as 3/1 for the 2m3f conditional jockeys’ handicap hurdle at Carlisle (2.40pm) as he was forecast at 10/1 in my paper. That immediately tells me he’s fit and ready to go after a 348-day break and I’m prepared to swap him for my original selection Bryden Boy. The latter undoubtedly had a race like this in him off his current rating mark but the gambled on selection is even better handicapped on a mark of 110, having been as high as 134.

Like the first bet, he’s having his first run for a new trainer, in his case being switched from Evan Williams to Henry Oliver after losing his way, and he should walk this on some of his old form. In his prime, he was running at Grade 1 tracks like Cheltenham and Sandown, and even ran in the Galway Hurdle, finishing ninth to Overturn. Okay, that was some time ago now but the market support suggests he’s been showing up well at home, and there’s still plenty to of 7/2 on offer.
