Billy Bronco fancied to follow-up at Exeter​


Billy Bronco scored in good style last time out so is taken to make light of a rise in the weights and follow-up in the 5.15 at Exeter today.​ ​ Billy Bronco has slipped to a handy mark and looks worth a bet at 8/1 to take advantage in the 4.15 at Exeter today.​ ​ ​ ​ This Evan Williams trained eight-year-old won a maiden hurdle at Ayr in January 2017 off an official ratting of 124 and went on to post some solid runs over fences last year.​ ​ ​ ​ They include when third at Ffos Las off 123 and runner-up at Catterick off 122.​ ​ He has had just four starts this season following 249 days on the sidelines and shaped as if badly needing the first two of those.​ ​ ​ ​ However, he was then in the process of running a big race last time out at Uttoxeter when close-up and yet to be asked a serious question when running out and unseating his rider at the fourth last.​ ​ ​ ​ That was a big step back in the right direction and Billy Bronco duly built on it to land an 11-runner class 3 contest in game style over course and distance 13 days ago when beating Lithic by 1/2 a length off a mark of 113.​ ​ He has been put up 6lb for that but now drops back down into class 4 company and remains well-treated on the pick of his form off a revised rating of 119, so it may not be enough to stop him going in again.​ ​

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Billy Bronco (3/1 general – use BOG firms
