For today’s bet of the day, I’m afraid we’re going to have to wait until late into the evening, as it comes in the closing race on Leicester’s card – the Hope Against Cancer Handicap over 1m2f at 8.05.

At least we will get chance to see how the track is riding with regard to ground and track position, as I’m rather hoping that it won’t inconvenience horses ridden prominently and on the far rail in the straight, as that’s exactly where Tyler Heard will hopefully be leading them all a merry dance on Bit Of A Quirke.

At 17/2 each-way with Paddy Power, who are offering five places each-way on the race, Mark Walford’s tenacious front-runner could prove very tough to pass.

I have been torn for most of the morning as to whether to recommend Bit Of A Quirke or not, as there are a number of other pacesetters in opposition. But as one of them, Jackamundo, is now a non-runner, and one of the others, Lockdown Dream, was on the receiving end of the relentless gallop set by Bit Of A Quirke last time at Beverley, I am more than inclined to feel that now is definitely the time for Mark Walford’s horse to fight them all off, and get back in the winners’ enclosure.

That run two weeks ago is worth highlighting, as Bit Of A Quirke not only fought off Lockdown Dream on the front end, but then went on to run a huge race kept to the far rail, which as the meeting drew on and more rain had fallen, it was evident that the stands side rail was predictably the place to be.

He boxed on bravely for second place and was only beaten by course regular Zihaam, and it is worth also noting that the third home, Little Jo, who followed Bit Of A Quirke on the far side, was a ready winner next time at Thirsk on Saturday.

Generally, it is no negative at Leicester Racecourse to be drawn low on the round course, and kept near the far rail in the straight. So, fresh from a mighty run at Beverley, and with plenty in his favour in terms of ground, draw and opposition, Bit Of A Quirke must be supported at 17/2 each-way with Paddy Power for the Hope Against Cancer Handicap at Leicester at 8.05 this evening.
