Betting Tip: Barneby @ 3/1 with bet365

The David Pipe-trained BARNEBY showed next to nothing in four starts for the stable last season, but he could improve dramatically now he tackles handicap company off what is a potentially lenient mark of 99, with the step up to three miles also in his favour. His sire Dom Alco is a strong influence for stamina and he was therefore never going to show his best over two miles, although that didn’t stop him being sent off as favourite for a Listed bumper on his racecourse debut at Cheltenham.

He’s evidently thought capable of better than he’s shown so far and he wouldn’t be the first stable runner to improve dramatically for a step up in trip on their handicap debut, with a fair few gambles landed in the process. I’m just hoping his uninspiring form figures of ‘0707’ might allow us to get a price, although I suspect the bookmakers may cotton on too. Either way, he really ought to win this if he has an ounce of ability, or else his connections may as well give up.
