4:30 NEWBURY

1 mile | Christopher Smith Associates Handicap (Str)

I am going for a 6/1 shot who looks to have an excellent each way chance in this 8-runner race.

SELECTION

WILLYORWON'T HE

This progressive three-year-old gelding has been freshened up for seven weeks by his stable after four runs in quick succession in May and June. He looks worth an interest on his return in this Class 4 handicap.

He has steadily progressed in his 6 starts since March (RPR's 69, 76, 81, 81, 85, & 87) and last time out was a good half-length 3rd of 11 to two subsequent winners after not quite getting home over 1m2f. So, it's no surprise to see him dropped back to a more suitable mile trip today where hopefully there will be further improvement to come from him.

The drying conditions at the track are in his favour, the Philip McBride is red hot at the moment (Last 14 days: 2-5, 40%), the form of his last two races is working out well, and the eye is drawn to the first-time booking of Hollie Doyle.

I would suggest betting 0.5 points each way on WILLYORWON'T HE who looks set to go close in this 8-runner affair.

MAIN DANGER

TOP SECRET

This four-year-old gelding has been running well with a 1st and 2nd in his last two starts. He represents the bang in form William Muir & Chris Grassick yard (Last 14 days: 4-18, 22%). He has been climbing up the weights but could go close if he improves again as expected for this first attempt at a mile after shaping last time like the new trip would suit.

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.
