The best of the weekend’s British horse racing action takes place at Newmarket on Saturday afternoon. A competitive seven-race card takes us from a fillies’ handicap at 1.40pm through to a similar race to close to show at 5.10pm. Here are our top 5 October horse racing betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Punters can follow the action live on ITV and Racing TV. You can also find a number of live streams offered up by major bookmakers, including William Hill. If you bet on the outcome of a race or have available funds in your account, you can view the HD quality stream. Experience the action with expert analysis and commentary completely free of charge.
The early betting saw bookmakers price a win market for the much anticipated Sun Chariot Stakes. This Group 1 race open to fillies and mares is advertised for a 3.25pm start time. The field will battle it out over a mile. 11 runners entered earlier in the week. However, they will whittle that number down during the various declarations stages.
Get in Quick
Laurens won the race for Burke and Tudhope last year. Now the traders believe the one to snatch that crown away on Saturday is Veracious. He sits happily at the top of the ante-post market as a 10/3 jolly with William Hill. That price makes Veracious one ahead of two in a row for Laurens. You can back him at 4/1 at Ladbrokes and we believe that makes much more sense.
If you intend on following us in on that bet we’d advise getting your cash down sooner rather than later as we expect the odds to be cut before the off time. Ladbrokes were the most generous firm at the time of writing and each-way backers can get their hands on place terms of 1/5 the odds 1-2-3.
