Kelso best bet (1630): Kingston Bridge to claim another Kelso success

While most the attention is fixed on this week's Cheltenham Festival, there are still plenty of races that are attracting interest in the Tipstrr camp including the final race of Kelso's Sunday card.

16:30 Kelso: Join Racing TV Now Handicap Hurdle (2 miles 5 furlongs)

The final race at Kelso promises to offer the punter plenty of value, with most bookmakers pricing the market leader, Harper Valley, at around 5/2 at the time of writing.

Rebecca Menzies' six-year-old has been in fine form recently, with five of his last six outings resulting in a top three finish and three of them ended in the winners enclosure, including on his last run at Catterick.

Despite good odds for a gelding of that calibre, there's still plenty of value elsewhere in the market. 

Eloi Du Puy is currently just behind Harper Valley in the market and has impressed on plenty of occasions so far this season, including two victories over this course-and-distance as well as an impressive win at Carlisle. 

Fourofakind was another last-time-out winner, as he narrowly beat Thank You Ma'am at Hereford just under a month ago, and he offers plenty of each-way value in a race that will pay out three places.

Despite some serious talent on display elsewhere, our selection is Ewan Whillans' six-year-old Kingston Bridge

Kingston Bridge has struggled for form recently, with two sixth-place finishes at Carlisle in his last four outings, but sandwiched in between them poor displays are two top-three finishes including one at this course.

He showed impressive form in his debut season last year, which included a victory at this course on debut, over a slightly shorter trip. 

Whillans once again teams up with Craig Nichol here and Nichol has a good record when riding Kingston Bridge, one which reads two wins and three top-three finishes in seven races. 

Considering that his third-place finish on his last outing here was over a slightly longer trip, the reduction of one-and-a-half furlongs could be what pushes Kingston Bridge to a long-awaited third career win. 


Suggested best bet: Kingston Bridge in the 16:30 at Kelso
