Newbury racecourse stages a seven-race card on Saturday. It’s certainly one that will pull in a large audience. The action gets started at 1.50pm and finishes at 5.20pm. Here are our top Aug 17 horse racing betting tips.
A Closer Look
There’s plenty for lovers of a bet to get stuck into with bookmakers offering exciting markets on each of the races. The Denford Stakes opens the show on Saturday and acts as a great introduction on what to expect that day. A seven furlongs listed race, the original field was made up of a dozen runners. However, that number was reduced during the various declarations stages. There’s over £22,000 on offer to the winner and that ensures we will see a talented renewal.
Favourite Already Picked
Traders have had their say on this race and price Juan Elcano as early favourite. Punters looking to beat the rush and get their cash down before the casual money floods in will find William Hill as the most generous firm of the bunch. They offer a market best price of 7/4 about a horse offered at 11/10 with most major firms. Clearly, that’s too big of a difference to ignore. As any experienced backer will confirm, if you back enough 11/10 shots at 7/4 you will make a profit.
That’s exactly what we intend to do here as we believe the money men have the best horse picked. This two-year-old colt is a product of the great Frankel. Therefore, that will ensure there’s a bit of a buzz about him in the betting ring. He has run twice before, winning once and finishing runner up in the spare. The pick won on debut and was last seen ending a length behind Mystery Power in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes.
