This 8-year-old gelding sprung a 50/1 shock last time; can he repeat it again?
It was a really competitive race that he won when last seen at Worcester. There were several last time out winners, but he travelled as well as anything and showed a good attitude to hold on close to home.
We’ve already seen the third run well since (when looking to go a bit too quick), and the 9th was narrowly denied too. There’s no real reason why 3lb would stop him going extremely close today.
I guess if I was being critical, the race did look to turn in to a bit of a dash, but it looked like stepping him up to a staying trip proved the catalyst for improvement.
I feel like I know what most of this field are capable of, and although this 6-year-old proved disappointing when switched to hurdles last time, the ground was too soft, and he just didn’t travel with the same vibrancy that he did over fences.
He’s running off a 15lb lower mark over hurdles than his chase mark, and he’s back from a break. I would seriously consider putting some on if the money came for him.
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.
