Never look a gift horse in the mouth!
There are several trainers in-form with only a single runner out today:-
Michael Bell sends BLUE ZEALOT 182 miles to to Ripon for the 4:40, but Michael Hills sends his only runner today MUSIC MAESTRO 214 miles for the same race! This looks a competitive 3yo maiden and probably a race to watch and note rather than bet on.
John Dunlop sends SPRING HEATHER to Chepstow for the 4:50 but this class 6 looks a dire race - full of dodgepots.
And Willie Haggas sends his only runner of the day to Lingfield, REDDEN in the 4:00. This looks to have the best chance on form, but I am never happy siding with a horse having his first run on the AW. So, all-in-all, a day to keep the money in the pocket.
There's been a bit of a market move for AVITUS in the 2:40 at Ripon, probably as its trainer Micky Hammond has his stable in good form. But this horse has just about the worst of the draw and will need to have improved a fair bit on his last run to be involved here today. As such, if he shortens a bit more he may be worth place-laying at less than 2.30 on the place-only market.
There was a win for England over Mexico last night, but for me the value in the World Cup betting is ARGENTINA @ 8/1.
