First up on ITV Racing is the Class 3 Handicap Chase over 2m4f and Smarty Wild for Philip Hobbs is a horse that has been knocking on the door all season and we now feel it is time for him to be let in.
The six year old is a value each way contender at 7/1 having ran to a good standard on all of his outings this term, being in and around the frame in similar events.
Having made the change to fences this term, he started his season off at Ascot over 2m2f when finishing a good third behind two smart runners that have franked the form since.
Next time out he was dropped in trip and it did not suit him aswell as this distance does today as he bounced back last time out when a good third at Ascot behind two decent prospects.
Having not gone up in the weights for that run it is only a matter of time before he gets his head in front and at 7/1 it is worth taking the chance on him.
