Architect Tips is back with two tips for today's action, with a runner at Southwell and Pontefract.
This is a weak race for the grade, so I’ll take my chances on the well-treated ARIJ (best price 20/1) who was much the best of these on the Flat, where he achieved a mark of 94 at one point for his former boss Simon Crisford. He has been far too keen in all four starts over hurdles as of yet, but he’s clearly not short of ability, and he is both his jockey and trainers’ only ride and runner on the card. If he can put it all together here, and not race so keenly, his flat speed could prove decisive in the latter stages against a modest field. He’s worth an each-way interest at huge odds with four places generally available.
