At an each way price I’ve opted for this horse over hurdles today. I'd happily chance this useful recruit from the flat against the short-priced favourite making his hurdles/yard debut today.
The selection won twice on the flat in April and remained competitive throughout the summer where, after finishing 2nd at Newbury in August, he was bought for 45,000 Guineas before promptly joining the Alan King yard. It bodes well that the trainer is a bit of a whiz with juvenile hurdlers and has a 23% strike rate with the horses he has sent to this track over the past five years (29-127).
GREYSTOKE should be fit from his flat campaign, gets the good ground he wants, and with jockey Tom Cannon banging in the winners (last 14 days: 6-28, 21% strike rate) he will hopefully get his hurdles career off to a winning start. The advice is 0.5 points each way in this 10-runner race.
The likely Favourite, this three-year-old Dan Skelton trained colt won his only start to date over 1m 6.5f on Good to Soft on the flat in France back in June, comfortably beating Fil D'Or by 2.5 lengths. That one went on to win by 16 lengths next time out making his hurdles debut last Saturday at Down Royal running to a Racing Post Rating of 134 in the process. If IN THIS WORLD can perform to around that level on his hurdles debut, coming off a five-month break, he will take all the beating.
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.
