Betting Tip: Zand @ 10/1 with williamhill

Mark Johnston has developed a real affinity with this meeting down the years and backing all his runners here since 2011 would have yielded 32 winners for a healthy £1 level-stakes profit of £44.12. Given his current hot streak, it could prove wise to give all his runners this week a second look and he can get the meeting off to a flyer with ZAND, who is making his stable debut in a race the trainer has won four times in the last nine years.

Formerly with John Oxx, who trained him to win four races, including a hat-trick in Switzerland in the first half of last year, he makes his debut for the Middleham trainer here and is the chosen mount of Joe Fanning, who has won on him twice previously. What makes him of real interest, though, is his liking for some dig in the ground, with the meeting expected to start on slowish surface.
