We’re off to the races today, on ITV4 if you fancy it, too. It’s at an Irish raider that I like at an each way price I’ve opted for who appears to have plenty going for him. You can also get four places through the link below.
This nine-year-old has won three times when fresh, including the €360,000 Irish Grand National over 3m5f at Fairyhouse back in April. He tackles 3m6f today and with sound jumping a major asset of his, plus stamina in abundance, he might not be far away.
His trainer, Dermot McLoughlin, doesn't send many over to the UK but does well with the ones that he does with two winners and two horses placed from just five runners here in the past five years. On ground to suit, FREEWHEELIN DYLAN rates a decent bet to add to that tally with 0.5 points advised each way.
This six-year-old gelding runs from 8lb out of the handicap but he has shown plenty of ability in his chase starts to date. He has ground to suit, his yard have been amongst the winners recently (Last 14 days: 2-8, 25%), and today's extra four furlongs could unlock further improvement. It would be no surprise to see him go well at likely high double-figure odds.
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.
