Horse Racing Betting - Latest Odds and Previews


Friday's Racing Preview - York

Looking beyond the noise of the opening ceremony of the World Cup, another day of excellent racing beckons across the UK tomorrow.

We've picked out the 16:10 BetBright For Your World Cup Bets Choose EBF Nominated Fillies' Stakes at York for special attention.

Even the favourites are at reasonable odds because this field is highly competitive.

The current favourite is Love Island, and we can certainly see why she appeals.

She beat Bondesire in a not dissimilar race at Ripon last month, and although she followed that with a third behind the same horse and Royal Rascal next time out, she ran well after being drawn on the outside.

She's run well on this track before too, so we think she's the closest thing to a cert you can get in a tough race like this one.

Her odds are as short as 5/2, but we found her still a little longer at 7/2 over at SkyBet.

Second favourite Royal Rascal will undoubtedly give her a run for her money though.

On top of the aforementioned recent win over Love Island, Rascal is consistently showing the high level of form this spring that seemed to be lacking from her last campaign.

She came second to Bondesire recently, but a slightly shorter weight and a first time running in blinkers may well allow her to pull one back.

She's also as low as 5/2 in some places, but you can still pick her up at 9/2 if you pay a visit to Coral.

Finally, further down the listings Mar Mar has proved a consistent runner over this sort of distance.

She went well in her two races so far this season, so the big question is whether she can finally overcome her tendency to fade towards the finish line.

Nonetheless, we think she could be the big surprise here, and at 10/1 offered at William Hill, well worth a small flutter or an each way bet.

2014 Investec Derby at Epsom

We've been counting down all week to the big race and now it's finally here.

The Epsom Derby is bigger than Christmas in flat racing, and this years promises to be a superb race.

The favourite is Australia, and it's easy to see why.

In terms of form, he ran superbly last year and then finished a very credible third in the 2,000 Guineas on his return.

In terms of breeding, he's by a Derby winner out of an Oaks winner, and his trainer has always considered him to be a great prospect.

It's very possible that he'll prove his trainer right on Saturday, and the bookies all think he will too.

Nonetheless, we still found him at a reasonable 13/8 over at Ladbrokes.

THe only thing that might cause Australia to falter is the ground conditions. With plenty of rain predicted tomorrow, if the ground gets much worse than soft he may struggle.

That's where we think second favourite Kingston Hill might pounce.

In form and breeding he's not quite at the calibre of Australia, but he's certainly not far off.

More importantly, he's proven himself on soft ground, and that's undoubtedly going to be a factor tomorrow.

With that in mind, we'd recommend a trip to Paddy Power, who still have him at a very decent 8/1.

Finally, we've picked out one to watch from further down the bookies listings.

Fascinating Rock has developed into one to watch this spring, with three wins over 1m2f on slow ground.

He has an Oaks winner in his pedigree, though there's nothing else special of note. Nonetheless we think he's priced a little longer than he deserves.

With that in mind, you can pick him up at 12/1 over at Stan James.

At those odds, a little fun each way seems worth a punt!
