  • Beverley Best Bet (): Langton Wold Bidding To Convert Hurdling Form Into Flat Success

Beverley best bet (1615): Langton Wold bidding to convert hurdling form into flat success

This 15-runner handicap promises to produce the most competitive race on Beverley’s afternoon card, and it certainly throws up a whole host of potentially lucrative betting options.

The morning withdrawal of strongly-fancied She’s Got Bottle has produced a more wide-open betting market that has Young Fire, Beltane and Strangerontheshore currently vying tentatively for the favourite tag.

We tipped Strangerontheshore last time out, and the course-distance winner gave us a decent run for our money when coming fourth of 13 at this venue eight days ago.

However, we’re reluctantly swerving her this time in favour of Langton Wold, who has not won on the Flat since 2022, but put in some decent runs last term, with a season-best third of 10 on his last visit to this track last August.

While that form might seem modest, it’s worth noting that Brian Ellison’s five-year-old has enjoyed a productive winter campaign over hurdles, eventually converting back-to-back runner-up spots at Sedgefield into a tidy win in a eight-runner novice at the same venue on Boxing Day.

He was last seen coming a creditable fourth of 10 at Musselburgh in February, and he now looks well treated to hit the ground running on his return to this sphere. 

Suggested best bet: Langton Wold each-way in the 16:15 at Beverley

 

With five places widely available among mainstream bookmakers, Tipstrr’s each-way specialists have unsurprisingly emerged from the woodwork, with Coolree, Soames Forsyte and War Chant all receiving a smattering of support.

On the receiving end of their final nod of outsider approval, however, is Tim Easterby’s experienced nine-year-old, Poet’s Dawn, who is a four-time course-distance winner in seasons gone by.

He enjoyed a productive 2023 campaign that peaked with a two-length win at Redcar in August and was rounded off by decent performances at York (4th of 13 in 0-85 company) and finally at Newmarket, where he was runner-up in another competitive 15-runner handicap.

Poet’s Dawn emerged from a six-month break 26 days ago to finish sixth of nine at Ripon, where he probably needed the run and not necessarily in the unsuitably heavy conditions he encountered there.

With that pipe-opener out of the way, he can be expected to acquit himself better here, where he will continue to benefit from Alex Fielding’s useful seven-pound claim, which brings him comfortably below his last winning mark.
