Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting May 18

Horse Racing Betting
This Saturday’s Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes is the first major mile contest for older horses in the UK Flat season. It’s gaining a reputation for fields bigger than normal for the type of race and therefore offers more betting opportunities, even though this year’s renewal is probably well up to the level of previous years. Lockinge Stake…

Pertemps Network Swinton Handicap Hurdle – Horse Racing Betting May 10

Horse Racing Betting
Time can distort the memory but I’m sure at one time that the Pertemps Network Swinton Handicap Hurdle was a race run at the end of a National Hunt season and not the beginning. However, seasons are such a blurred line nowadays that anyone can get confused. The fact remains that this is the last big opportunity for 2m hurdlers to pick up a nice prize before b…

SportPesa Chester Cup Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting May 10

Horse Racing Betting
Jockeys and their mounts could be excused for feeling more than a little dizzy at the end of the 2m2f SportPesa Chester Cup. Chester’s almost circular course measures less than a mile so runners half to complete more than two circuit on the turn but clear heads are needed throughout in a race in which position is important as pace – it’s fair…

Qipco 1000 Guineas Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting May 5

Horse Racing Betting
Prize money for the Qipco 2000 Guineas and 1000 Guineas winner still varies to the tune of around £14,000 but the gap is closing, even though the value of a top stallion will usually trump that of a top broodmare. The fillies’ classic, following on closely from the first colts’ classic, is actually the more valuable race which is why it attracts ru…

Qipco 2000 Guineas Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting May 4

Horse Racing Betting
It’s the first Classic of the season and it seems to come around quicker every year. However, 14 of the 19 declared runners have managed to get in at least one prep run this season, though there are plenty who have won this race in the past without the benefit of a pipe-opener. 2000 Guineas History and Trends The 2000 Guineas, now sponsored by Qipco, was fir…

UK Flat Jockeys’ Championship 2019 Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting

Horse Racing Betting
Ignore the fact that the Flat season on Turf in the UK started in March, the powers-that-be have decided that winners accumulated up to this point and beyond the middle of October don’t really count when it comes to the Flat Jockeys’ Championship. This is not a new ruling but it still wrankles among jockeys and trainers who have already built up a h…

Boylesports Irish Grand National Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting April 22

Horse Racing Betting
You do have to question whether the battle for supremacy between Ireland’s top two National Hunt stables is detrimental to the sport as a whole. Gordon Elliott, backed by the powerful Gigginstown operation, is responsible for 12 of the 30 entries for Easter Monday’s Boylesports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse. Willie Mullins trains seve…

Queen’s Cup Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting April 20

Horse Racing Betting
The Queen’s Cup Stakes at Musselburgh’s is still a relatively new addition to the staying handicap division. It was first run in 2017 with a view to being an early trial for the likes of the Chester Cup, Ascot Stakes and Ebor later in the season but it’s too soon to say whether the experiment has been a success. The first two winners of the heritage handicap…

All-Weather Championships Finals Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting April 19

Horse Racing Betting
There was a time, not long ago, when betting shop staff and many associated with the betting and horse race industries could count on three days off in the year. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day remain sacrosanct in the UK, for the time being at least, but Good Friday was just too much of an opportunity for bookmakers to resist for long. They won their ‘batt…

Coral Scottish Grand National Preview and Betting – Horse Racing Odds April 13

Horse Racing Betting
The mighty Red Rum is the only horse to have won the Aintree Grand National and Coral Scottish Grand National in the same season and is likely to remain so if the two races continue to be scheduled as close to each other as they have been in recent years. It’s just seven days since the Merseyside marathon and there would have outrage among welfare groups had…

Horse Racing Betting
Gordon Elliott is set to train a record number of entries in this year’s Randox Health Grand National including, of course, last year’s winner Tiger Roll.
