We broaden our horizons this weekend in the search of a horse racing winner at a nice price. So, we’re abandoning the UK and Irish schedule to look further afield. This weekend’s domestic schedule looks run of the mill and there’s much more to get excited about from the international racing list. Here are our top 26 October horse racing betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
We focus our attention on the upcoming Cox Plate which will be run on Saturday 26 October. There’s value to be had, with bookmakers offering betting on the race as well as a few specials markets. Our team preview the event and pick out the online betting firms offering market best price, vital in beating the bookies.
The Cox Plate is staged at Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia. It has a history that can be traced all the way back to 1922. Winx has won each of the last four runnings of this race but the betting has Lys Gracieux as the most likely champion this year, offering no more than the 3/1 served up by 888sport traders.
Hope for Good Luck
This promises to be a competitive contest, however. So, there will be more than a few shrewd backers happy to oppose the market and go for one at a bigger price to cause an upset. We don’t stray too far down the betting however and place our trust in Cape of Good Hope who is a 12/1 pick at William Hill. Punters after a bit more of a safety net can take advantage of the each-way terms 1/5 the odds a place 1-2-3 offered by most firms, including Bet365.
