Betting Tip: @ 9/1 with betfair

The sort of race bookmakers love with most going 7/1 the field. William Haggas’ Al Neksh is one of three runners disputing favouritism at around that price and it’s easy to see why as he’s won three of his six starts and may have more to offer in his second season. He might just need his first run back, though, and the same comment applies to the similarly priced pair of Lovell, who has been off since Royal Ascot last June, and Shabeeb.

That’s not to say any of that trio can’t win and any trainer in this day and age can ready one after a layoff, especially for a decent pot like this. But I’d still rather back one with the benefit of race fitness and Charlie Fellowes’ REPERCUSSION will strip fitter for his reappearance sixth in a well contested handicap at the Newmarket Craven meeting. That effort can be upgraded as he came from well of the pace and the form now looks even stronger after runner-up Shaiyem, who was also ridden patiently, went one better on his next outing.

The selection, who is having just his second start for his current stable having started out with Andre Fabre, was finishing better than anything at HQ and should therefore be suited by stepping back up in trip, having already won over 1m1f and finished runner-up over this trip in his native France behind the smart Lord Glitters (2-2 in 2017). That was one of two soft-ground seconds on his CV, so the more rain the better for him, and another win is very much on the cards with his stable in flying form (4-9 in the last fortnight). Sadly the early 20/1 is history (missed the boat myself!), but Betfair’s 9/1 is not to be sniffed at.
