Betting Tip: @ Warthog @ 7/2 with coral

It’s been a bit of a struggle for David Pipe this season and he doesn’t have the ammunition he once had, but one horse I’d expect him to place to advantage is WARTHOG. He’s sending the six-year-old north from his Devon base to contest this afternoon’s 3m handicap hurdle and on racecourse evidence the grey gelding really ought to go close.

A point winner, he’s shown ability in bumpers and over hurdles, culminating with a third place in an Ascot novice hurdle (2m3f, soft) last month. While he didn’t find a lot for pressure on that occasion, that was his first run back after wind surgery and the benefits of that are not always immediately apparent. He’s also making his handicap debut here off what looks a fair mark of 127 over what should be a more suitable trip, and is far less exposed than his five rivals.
