Elan De Balme – 3.30 Ffos Las (14/1 – Various)
Monday’s each-way bet comes from a three-mile handicap chase at Ffos Las, with a dual chase winner in France making up the selection.
Elan De Balme has not yet stuck on British soil, but the seven-year-old carries some useful form from last autumn.
The gelding finished third over 2m5f here in October, before running well to claim second at Hereford over today’s distance at Hereford.
David Pipe’s chaser struggled on his seasonal reappearance, finishing eighth of nine runners at Hexham at the beginning of the month but he could well have needed the run.
With a price of 14/1, Elan De Balme hints at each-way value in this contest if he can revive last year’s form.
