I’ve gone for an each-way shot over the jumps today. He looks on a fair mark so let's hope he gives us a good run for our money. He rates a 0.5 points each way bet in this 11-runner race and could go close provided he is ready to fire on his return from a seven-month break.
This five-year-old Matt Sheppard trained gelding looks worth an interest now stepping up in trip on his handicap debut. He shaped on his two hurdles starts back in January/February over 2m2f & 2m4.5f like he was all about stamina, so should be well-suited by today's extra yardage. His opening handicap mark of 103 looks workable and he won't mind the recent rain in the area with his four runs to date coming on Soft/Heavy going. He is also open to no end of improvement on only his fifth start ever, and the first-time booking of the inform San Twiston-Davies (Last 14 days: 6-38,16%) catches the eye enough to make ONE FER MAMMA my pick for the day.
A six-year-old gelding who travelled well for a long way on his debut for Dr Richard Newland over 3m1f at Huntingdon 17 days ago. There he cruised into contention just after three from home, but didn't quite get there, losing a place late on. Ultimately, he shaped like he would be well-suited like this drop back to 2m5.5f. He only went up 1lb for finishing 3rd and looks a danger to all as he can only improve really.
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.
