Betting Tip: Top Tug @ 6/1 with bet365

This is tough but at least we will get out money back as a free bet (up to £25) with Sky Bet should we not be lucky enough to land on the winner. That is enough to tempt me in and Sir Michael Stoute’s TOP TUG seems sure to go well with some luck in running. That wasn’t the case at Goodwood last time, where he would have gone close but for being denied a clear run at a crucial point, and he’s now back over his ideal trip.

He likes a bit of dig in the ground so the current “good to soft” is perfect and the only real negative is his wide draw in stall 19. That said, high numbers can often benefit if the pace is too strong and I’m not going to let the draw put me off – besides we’ll get a free bet if he doesn’t win.

Chancery, who will exit from stall one, has to be considered, although he is penalised for last week’s Ripon success and a bigger danger may be Charlie Hills’ Xinbama, who was an unlucky sixth in this race last year and will have had another attempt on his agenda for a while. He’s an each-way price at 20/1 with the sponsors.
