Where’s our best bet for the Bank Holiday?

Steve Hughes has a single selection for Monday

The standard of racing in Britain is very moderate considering it is a Bank Holiday and you would hope some good races would be organised (to be fair Kempton’s jumps card would have been decent with more rain). However I do have a best bet from Beverley. We had a good Sunday with victory for Baghdad (9/4) and Victory Angel made the fourth place for the Skybet each-way (SP 18/1).

Beverley 4.15: Where’s Jeff

Trainer Mick Easterby has not made his usual rattling fast start to the turf season, but perhaps his horses were not quite so forward this spring, as they have seemed to need their first run and the yard has certainly hit form in the past few days. As a result Where’s Jeff looks interesting, especially on his first start at 10f.

The gelding made a satisfactory reappearance at Nottingham last month when fourth, beaten less than 2l by Saisons D’Or (winner again since). That should have put him spot on for this outing today.

The 4yo showed significant improvement last season, stepped up from sprinting distances as a juvenile to a mile. He won twice at Newcastle and Hamilton in the summer, seemingly relishing the stiff finish at both tracks. Given his dam won two 3m point to points there is plenty of stamina in his pedigree and there be more to come now up to 10f for the first time.

Recommended bets:

1pt win – Wheres Jeff – 4.15 Beverley – 3/1 general
