Betting Tip: Aqalim @ 6/1 with bet365

John Ferguson’s golden run of form shows no sign of stopping and his AQALIM looks to have a cracking chance in this weight-for-age contest, with his stamina for the 3m trip proven. Given his high rating it’s not surprising that connections are thinking of skipping handicaps and going novice chasing with him this season and he could make a big splash in that sphere. But his hurdles form bears close inspection, with the highlight arguably being his fifth in the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival, and he only needs to run to within a few pounds of that effort to land this. What makes him even more appealing is that the two horses in front of him in the current betting are opposable: Rock On Ruby is a doubtful stayer, while Grumeti has a bit to find on the ratings and had a hardish race when winning the Cesarewitch on the flat three weeks ago.
