Betting Tip: Umberto D'olivate @ 12/1 with williamhill

The second bet runs in 3m handicap chase run later on the card (4.15pm) and we are assured of a price as it’s a competitive heat. Bookmakers make the Anthony Honeyball-trained As De Fer a general 3/1 favourite and that’s understandable as he is bidding for a hat-trick and he absolutely hacked up over slightly further at this track on his penultimate start. However, the handicapper has hit him with a further 12lb rise and, while his rider David Noonan’s 5lb claim takes care of some of that, he is going to need a career-best effort.

Robert Walford’s UMBERTO D’OLIVATE, on the other hand, is heading in the other direction weights-wise as he has been dropped 3lb for his latest fifth over 2m4f at Wincanton. He has won over that sort of trip before but shapes like he needs further now and his current mark of 119 is a whopping 11lb lower than his last winning one. That was back in March 2014 and he was winning for the fourth time that season, after which the handicapper stepped in. But 11 runs later and after a few mediocre runs along the way, he now finds himself well handicapped again and with conditions in his favour this afternoon he could well take advantage.
