RACELINE: TIP OF THE DAY

The remarkable run of seven wins from nine selections of our resident tipster came to an end yesterday when Liberty Court was beaten into second at 6/1. But he’s back for more today!

Saturday February 16

BUCK MAGIC

Wincanton 2.30 WIN

I am a shade concerned that connections feel the need to reach for blinkers for the first time because in no way is he ungenuine. But everything else points to a return to the winner’s enclosure for one of the rising stable-stars of vastly underrated trainer Neil Mulholland. From carrying bottom weight last time, he shoulders top weight here, which underlines how inferior this contest is to the hot Lanzarote Hurdle in which the seven-year-old finished a highly creditable third four weeks ago. A big, strapping chasing type, he will have no problem with the welter burden of 11-12, nor with the testing ground. Although he is on a mark 13lbs higher than when third the same race last season, talented claimer Michael Byrne, who has won on him before, takes off a handy 3lb, while the gelding is proven round Wincanton.
