20:30 Carlisle – Al Neksh (BEST ODDS 3/1 with bet365)
Al Neksh is a distance winner that is only up a pound after a good second at York last time out. That was in Class 2 company as well, so there’s no step up in class for the favourite of the field. He also has the top class jockey Ryan Moore on board, which is a massive plus for any horse. I can definitely see Al Neksh improving again today, especially considering that there a few question marks over other horses in the field. Firnas was beaten ten lengths over course and distance last time, whereas UAE Prince looks on a high mark. Sometimes you just have to side with the favourite, and I’m confident he’ll do the business today.
A £20 total stake returns £80 with bet365
