Betting Tip: @ No Hassle Hoff @ 6/4 with bet365

Dan Skelton has had a couple of favourites turned over in the last week – Tommy Rapper was particularly expensive for me – but the horses are running well in the main and he can get himself back amongst the winners with NO HASSLE HOFF, who looks a cut above his seven rivals in the 2m7f handicap hurdle.

While he has top weight of 11st 12lb to carry, don’t let that put you off as he’s not badly treated by any means as he’s running off the same mark (134) as when finishing a highly creditable fourth (of 22) in a very competitive handicap hurdle at Aintree when last seen out in April.

That wasn’t the only time he ran well in defeat as he’d previously filled second spot behind classy sorts Constantine Bay and The Worlds End in races at Doncaster and Haydock respectively, having finished third and not beaten far behind subsequent Albert Bartlett third Wholestone at the Cheltenham December meeting.

That is rock solid form and given he’s only five and likely to have strengthened up over the summer, he’s going to be a force in the bigger staying handicap hurdles this season, with this race looking as good a place to start as any. As a thorough stayer, I’d expect Harry Skelton to give him a positive ride from the front and he may well make all.
