Betting Tip: The Ould Lad @ 7/2 with williamhill

Paul Nicholls has won this Wincanton feature seven times and having missed the target for the last three years, he’ll be keen to put that right on Saturday. He fires two arrows at the race and last year’s fourth Benvolio should again make his presence felt, but he’s giving an awful lot of weight to his stablemate The Ould Lad, who is potentially thrown in on the form he showed for Tom George in the early part of last season. He dotted up twice in November before finishing second to Benbane Head at the December Cheltenham meeting, only for the wheels to come off after largely due to some indifferent fencing. However, he’s joined Nicholls since and we all know the champion trainer is a dab hand at ironing out jumping issues and building up a horse’s confidence. If he has worked his magic, the seven-year-old could take some stopping off his low weight.
