Today’s horse racing stabs....

Non Dom (Bangor 4.50). Could well follow up his Leicester victory and beat the favourite. Said to be still on the upgrade. Best price of 3.25 is generally available, expect it to go off slightly shorter. 5pts win.

In the Ladbrokes Handicap at Wolves (3.00) I like Reach Out on his handicap debut. He’s got the breeding for the distance. Some of the better-fancied runners look a little exposed. A small e/w bet at 13.00 (Boylesports were initially best price, but that seems to have been cut but Tote and VC are currently holding that price). 1pt e/w.

I am not a very horse savvy, so i guess I will learn a lot about horse racing from you.

Thanks already for the tips

That's kind, but I'm no messiah. If you follow me, I guarantee you'll end up in the poor house eventually...

Seriously, the importance of being highly selective about betting is an absolute, regardless of the sporting discipline (unless you are a trader, in which case the above advice is a immaterial). There are around 25 to 30 races (approx) on an average day in UK racing, and anybody who tries to take an opinion about each and every one will end up potless.

Not much takes my eye today.

However, I'm going to lob 2pts at Alone In The Street in the first at Southwell. The favourite Reachforthebucks is in good form but no sort of price. Plus he has a double penalty. My selection ran a shocker last time out at Kempton, but before that won over course and distance. If he rediscovers that form, I figure he has a much better chance than his price would indicate.

Bet365 are currently showing 9-1; it's a couple of points shorter in other places.

Second. Well, given the withdrawals it was only a three-runner field!

Interesting market though, regardless of the NRs.

Bank back down to 107.25.
