Stratford: HOOPER | 2:55pm Mansionbet’s Bestival Bet 10 Get 20 Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick [+£21.92 profit from £1 tips on Flat NAP’s]
The team have been in good form of late, which included a winning tip at Uttoxeter on Thursday, and we’ve selected our best bet of the day at Stratford.
Having backed this horse successfully at this track last month, Nicky Henderson’s Hooper could have been given a lenient time of things by the handicapper up 4lbs from his Warwickshire success last time out.
He clearly loves it around here, having won on both appearances, and a step back in trip to two-miles doesn’t look an immediate concern with his handler seemingly sure of his speed at the distance.
Still only five, he’s lightly raced with just nine runs under his belt but chases a fifth success in a row here and it could pay to side with him again given his own form and that of Seven Barrows at the moment.
