Betting Tip: Legal Art @ 8/1 with bet365

It’s fairly safe to put a line through rags Unforgettable You and Danny O’ruairc on racecourse evidence, while the other five runners all have questions to answer.

Cooper makes a quick reappearance after finishing third at Ripon on Monday, but he was beaten a long way and gives weight away all round. Blackfoot Brave has been knocking on the door of late, filling the runner-up spot the last twice, but he too was a long way behind the winner last time and may need further.

Devious Spirit never showed on his reappearance, his first run since being gelded, while Fidelma Moon has finished no closer than fifth in four starts this term, with no obvious excuses. The pick therefore and almost by default goes to Mark Tompkins’ LEGAL ART, who can be excused a poor run on the Fibresand at Southwell last time and showed he had a race of this nature in him when twice finishing second on the all-weather at the beginning of the year. His jockey Ben Curtis rides the track well, scoring on six of his 30 rides (20%) for a £1 level-stakes profit of £23.25. His mount is a value price at 8/1.
