5:20 HAYDOCK

1m 2f | Amateur Handicap

I’ve opted for a horse which should have a decent each way chance provided he gets plenty of rain, which is forecast between now and race time at 5.20pm. This John Berry-trained gelding looks the one to be on. Let's hope the rain materialises, we get the Going we want, and we get a result.

SELECTION

DAS KAPITAL

This six-year-old will be best suited by the rain forecasted to fall today at the track. He was a good 2nd of 10 off this mark when last seen back in May. He goes well when fresh, and the application of first-time blinkers may spark some improvement. He gets in here off a relatively low weight and jockey Amy Collier takes a useful 5lb off his back. I also think he will be suited by today's drop back to 1m2f, so he ticks a lot of boxes and looks worth an each way interest in this competitive 10-runner affair.

MAIN DANGER

MENIN GATE

This Archie Watson-trained gelding finished last year on a high, winning easily at Redcar over this trip by 3.75 lengths and he may have more to offer this season. He returns from a 294-day break here but won coming off a similar break at the start of last season and he too won't be inconvenienced by the rain having won on Soft when last seen. He has the assistance of one of the better jockeys in Brodie Hampson in this Class 5 handicap for Female Amateur Jockeys and will be a danger to all if ready to fire on his seasonal debut.

HOW BETTING POINTS WORK IN HORSE RACING

The best horse racing tipsters will often suggest the number of points you should stake on each bet. For example, a two-point win, or a one point each way bet. This method can be used for all levels of horse racing bettor, as you decide how much each betting point is worth.

If you start with a total betting pot of £50, each point is worth 50p. If you start with £100, each point is worth £1. Simply divide your total betting pot by 100 to work out how much each point is worth.

Once you boost your betting bank by 50% with winnings, you should increase your point value accordingly. For example, if you build up 150 points, your point value should increase by 50%, so £1 becomes £1.50 and £5 becomes £7.50.
