Milton Bradley trains and Raul De Silva will ride Wye Bother which is an early price of 9/1 (Bet365) in this low grade 5 furlong handicap. A couple of decent performances over 6f to finish fourth at Wolverhampton the last twice indicate that this one could easily make the frame over a furlong shorter, at a decent each-way price. Take an extra place if you can, as there is not much between the top five or six in this sprint, and much may depend on luck in running.

If you’re looking for others at long-ish price for extra places, consider Storm Trooper (IRE) 11/1 or Swiss Cross (GB) 8/1.
