Market Rasen best bet (1605): Sister Michael to find winning touch after series of near misses

As the jumps season reaches its final sprint, the Tipstrr camp have cast their eyes upon plenty of betting potential in this handicap hurdle at Market Rasen.

There's plenty of betting value in this handicap hurdle with no short-price favourite in the market at the time of writing. 

The current market leader is Woodie Flash, Olly Murphy's six-year-old has been in fine form over the past year, with excellent wins at Worcester and Warwick and the former was over the same distance. 

Champion jockey contender Sean Bowen was in the saddle for the pair of wins, but Lewis Saunders takes the reigns here.

Saunders doesn't have the experience that Bowen has and that could be pivotal in this close contest. 

Accidental Legend has attracted plenty of interest, with his last three outings producing top-two finishes, including a win at Uttoxeter.

Trainer Fergal O'Brien didn't have much to shout about at Cheltenham with his two runners not in the mix in their respective races, including Crambo in the Stayers Hurdle who was tipped to do well in the run up to the Festival. 

Allo Allo has been attracting plenty of attention with Tipstrr's each-way experts, but he has struggled for form this season, pulling up in all of his last three outings. 

Our selection for this one is Sister Michael, who has been well backed but still has odds that provide some value, with David Killahena and Graeme McPherson's eight-year-old at 7/2 on Planet Sport Bet at the time of writing. 


He has been consistent in recent outings, finishing second in three of his last four but he struggled at Huntingdon last time out, coming eighth over a shorter trip but that was just his second outing after a year long break. 

He does have experience over this course but that came back in 2021 when he came sixth and was well beaten by Jonjo O'Neill's Springwell Bay, who was tipped to do well in the Pertemps at Cheltenham before being pulled out. 

Formerly trained by O'Brien, he is now trained by the inexperienced pair Killahena and McPherson, but they have started their training career well with four wins out of a possible 13 so far. 

Kielan Woods is a solid booking and he came mightily close to a Cheltenham Festival win when he came second in the Albert Bartlett aboard Ben Pauling's The Jukebox Man, beaten by just a head.

While it is a competitive field that comes to post at Market Rasen, Sister Michael has got our backing.

Suggested best bet: Sister Michael in the 16:05 at Market Rasen
