Leicester Tip: Tivoli
Well beaten at Newmarket when sent off at 5/6 but nothing went right in the race. Showed good turn of foot in sprint finish.
Punters have had their fingers burnt with Tivoli this season with defeats at 4/1 and 5/6 last time out but she should be given a third chance to lose her maiden tag.
At Newmarket nothing went right for the filly. She dwelt at the start and then didn’t settle behind the steady early pace. As the race developed into a sprint she was switched wide to get a run and made some headway with the fastest closing sectional of the race by 0.17s.
That is scant consolation for those who took the odds-on but it means bookmakers have to be a bit more generous with her odds to entice her followers back in. We can capitalise.
