Beverley Tip: Round The Island

Has been running well in better races. Needs a strong pace to aim at and all his wins have come in double digit fields. Draw and trip the worry but worth the risk.

There is a big field for the 3.30 Beverley but there is precious little to get excited about. Working from the inside draw, it’s hard to find anything positive to say about the challengers until you get to Round The Island in stall 14. His starting gate is an obvious issue but he is likely to be ridden from off the pace and will need luck from wherever he starts.

The good news is at least he’s been running well and in better races. On his last couple of starts over 6f, he’s been quite keen and the drop down to a stiff 5f should suit. The worry is whether he can keep in touch but by dropping down in grade he faces slower horses.

All his wins have come in double digit fields and he is off a winnable mark
