Ben Linfoot is siding with an intriguingly named Andrew Balding runner at Sandown on Wednesday - check out his best bet for the day.
Recommended bet: Ben Linfoot's Daily Nap, September 20
It could be worth chancing Andrew Balding’s Makkadangdang in Wednesday’s Molson Coors Handicap at Sandown.
The Mastercraftsman gelding hasn’t been seen since May but missed an engagement at Lingfield in June due to the fast ground and was presumably put away for an autumn campaign.
Handicapping over a trip always looked the future for him after some good runs in maidens and he ran okay when last seen at Brighton.
He gave Archie Watson’s Alnasal 10lb that day and was beaten less than two lengths – subsequent events show that to be a good effort.
Alnasal has been busy since, running 10 times and winning three of them on his climb to a rating of 81.
A mark of 73 awaits Makkadangdang for his handicap debut and, though he’s a bit of a punt after an absence, it’s worth risking that he’s primed and ready.
