Betting Tip: Scottish @ 5/1 with bet365

David O’Meara is bidding to win his third consecutive Strensall Stakes courtesy of 2014 winner Custom Cut and he’s definitely one for the short list, as is Sir Michael Stoute’s three-year-old Diploma, who is 2-2 on the Knavesmire and is in receipt of the weight-for-age allowance. However, this has been won by Godolphin five times since 2006 by three different trainers, and they look to have a fine chance of adding another with Charlie Appleby’s SCOTTISH. It was slightly disappointing that he couldn’t justify favouritism at Haydock last time, having won a Listed contest doing handsprings at Newbury previously, but he only lost out late to Royal Artillery after making most of the running. In hindsight, that was arguably a career-best effort and dropping back to nine furlongs here should be no problem. William Buick is back on board and he has an eye-catching 26% (20-78) strike rate on the stable runners in 2016, with all his rides yielding a £1 level-stakes profit of £35.80. Take bet365’s 5/1.
