Betting Tip: @ The Naughty Step each-way @ 22/1 with bet365

The final selection is very speculative but the class 6 1m3f handicap won’t take much winning despite the big field and Jim Boyle’s THE NAUGHTY STEP is getting weight from all his rivals. That’s because he showed next to nothing in four juvenile starts, meaning he started this season on a mark of 47 (now 45). However, he must have been showing something at home to go off at just 6/1 on his return to action at Lingfield nine days ago. That was his first try beyond a mile and it should have suited him on breeding, so it was a little disappointing to see him fade into seventh having been close up for most of the race.

Perhaps that run was needed after all and it could be significant that he’s being turned out again so quickly over a slightly shorter trip and with a visor on for the first time. The stable form is another reason to think he might outrun his 16/1 price tag, with a couple of stablemates winning and four others finding the frame in the last fortnight, while the booking of Josephine Gordon is another positive in my mind. UPDATE – the selection is proving easy to back – out to 22/1 from 16/1 – and stakes should therefore be kept small.
