Hi guys, I’m heading to Ascot this week. I have gone for a horse who has dropped to a career low mark. He looks a fair each way bet at around these odds in this 10-runner race and I’m hopeful he won’t be far away.
This six-year-old gelding has dropped a stone down the weights since this time last year and now looks well-handicapped running off a career low mark of 83 (Racing Post Rating, RPR) with conditions to suit.
He is also down in Class today and meets the re-opposing Favourite, Future Investment, on 9lb better terms than for the two-length beating over a less suitable 1m6f here on similar ground to this back in July. David Egan is a good booking, the selection has dropped to 14lb below his last winning mark, he has ran well twice here in the past three months. The step back up to two miles suits, and a first-time tongue-tie could spark some improvement. The advice is a 0.5 points each way bet on INDIANAPOLIS in this 10-runner affair. Skybet are the only firm paying 4 places on the race, but three places still offers value.
Likely to go off Favourite, this five-year-old Ralph Beckett trained gelding has been ultra-consistent in defeat having gone close in three of his last four starts. It is possible first-time blinkers and the booking of Rossa Ryan could eke out a little more improvement and he looks sure to be involved in the finish once again.
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.
