Betting Tip: @ Samson @ 7/1 with bet365

There is going to be plenty of market interest in Dan Skelton’s Premier King for the 2m4f handicap chase given the ten-year-old is making his stable debut and has had a wind operation since last seen out. He’s entitled to improve for that but he needs to as he was a very modest performer in Ireland, where he failed to land a point-to-point in six tries, and he’s no price besides.

I’m going to take him on with Sophie Leech’s SAMSON as he has shown more than enough in three chase outings to suggest he can win a race of this nature off his current mark. A winner over hurdles here last September off 4lb higher, he’s twice finished third over the bigger obstacles, including on unsuitably heavy ground, and would have filled the same spot on the other occasion had he not fallen at the last.

On his most recent outing over 3m, he gave it a bold go from the front only to tire once headed after three out, so today’s half mile shorter trip is in his favour. I also like the jockey booking of Adrian Heskin as he booted home a 4/1 winner for the same stable last week.
