Class-dropping Amis Desbois an appealing punt at 5/1 ​


Ami Desbois ran a stormer when runner-up last time out so no eased in grade looks worth siding with at 5/1 in the 3.35 at Sandown today.​ ​ The Graeme McPherson trained nine-year-old went down all guns blazing when beaten just a neck by Classic Ben in a competitive 16-runner class 2 affair over course and distance.​ ​ Kimberlite Candy, who came third, has since run well to finish fifth in the Eider at Newcastle whilst the fourth home Give Me A Copper is currently a top priced 6/1 favourite for the Ultima Handicap Chase on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival next Tuesday.​ ​ That gives the form a rock solid look in relation to this lower grade class 3 affair and although nudged up 4lb to a mark of 136 that still looks very exploitable given that Ami Desbois won over fences as a novice off an official rating of 141 and was an excellent fifth to Penhill in the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival off 144..​ ​ Amis Desbois also has a 100 per cent strike rate in the grade (three from three) and ground which suits. Indeed, any more rain that fell would only further increase his chances.​ ​

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Ami Desbois (5/1 Boylesports – BOG)​
