Betting Tip: @ 9/1 with coral

An impossible-looking sprint handicap at first glance, but we can use the draw to help narrow down the field – it helped to be drawn low-to-middle in such races here last year – and some form on soft ground is also desirable with plenty of rain forecast (it’s already on the soft side of good).

Roger Fell’s MUNTADAB ticks both boxes as he’s won on soft, and good to soft for that matter, and will exit from stall two, which makes him better drawn (in theory) than Udontdodou (18), who is one of three horses disputing favouritism. The other, Wentworth Falls, has fared better in that respect having been handed stall seven, but he lacks any soft-ground form and is 4lb worse off with Muntadab on their running at Doncaster two starts back, where they were separated by half a length at the line.

The selection has since finished second again – in a quality Ripon handicap behind Intisaab – and is clearly developing into an admirable sprinter who at some stage may be able to make the transition to Group company. But there is surely another handicap in him off his current mark (97) and today’s looks as good an opportunity as any with plenty in his favour. Take Coral’s 9/1.
