Today’s Horse Racing Tip

This is quite a strong field with plenty of claims around. BOOTLEGGER certainly looks like a threat at the top of the order but is coming into a stiffer test.

WILLIAM OF ORANGE is also a threat as he has been moved up 6lb after a recent score at Southwell.

But our horse racing tip for the contest is BAFANA BLUE at 9/2* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair).

He is a former course and distance winner and the 10-year-old looks to be in pretty decent shape at the moment.

He claimed a win on his penultimate run, which was at Wetherby. Then he was seen in a big test of stamina at Perth and put in a respective third-place finish there.

The shorter trip is sure to help Bafana Blue get in the picture for this one.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

SWISS PRIDE looks to be the clear front runner in this contest and we don’t see him getting knocked off his perch.

He is thriving at the moment and is our 6/4 horse racing tip* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair).

Swiss Pride is lining up for a course and distance hat-trick now after getting a win 13 days ago here.

That recent C&D success happened at 4lbs lower and the five-year-old looks to be in the mood for more still.

There doesn’t look to be anyone in the field strong enough to trip him up either.

A drop in trip could help EVASIVE POWER while APOLLINAIRE wasn’t disgraced on a 7f run at Leicester on his latest effort.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

This is a bigger field to sift through for a horse racing tip. Our selection is going to be ASK HENRY who looks to be in good shape at the moment.

23 days ago he dug in for a good second in a handicap at Warwick. The third-place finisher from that effort has since gone on to win.

So that has boosted the form of Ask Henry and he could be worth rolling the dice on. Ask Henry is only up 1lb from that run.

It is a 5/1 quote on the win for Ask Henry* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair).

The other threats in the field look to be MANETTI who was a runner up over course and distance last month. He’s knocking around at lower levels than he was last summer.

THE OGLE GOGLE MAN was four at course and distance last time out.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

GAME LINE is definitely on the shortlist for this contest at 7/1* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair).

It has been two wins in his last three after picking up another spring win a month ago.

The most recent of those was at Newton Abbot at a 3m 2f distance last month by a half of a length.

Game Line has been going well for his new yard and has been a model of consistency. The extra trip doesn’t look like it is beyond him, quite the opposite, he could thrive further.

The other key players in the contest appear to be the current favourite ROBIN OF SHERWOOD and FRIENDS DON’T ASK, the latter bouncing back to form last time out with the cheekpieces on.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

HEART OF A LION has to be feared in this contest at a quote of 9/2* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair).

But there is perhaps a bigger threat on the horizon from MACFIN who is coming into handicapping for the first time.

He was second in a Huntingdon novice last time out and looks to have a big chance off a fair mark in this one for Nigel Twiston-Davies.

There has been nice progress over the timbers for Macfrin already and may be able to have a strong say in this one.

The low mileage five-year-old just gets the nod therefore at 5/1* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair).

HAHADI, CALVINIST and ENVOI DE LA COUR other ones of interest.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

The two obvious big players in this contest are BALLYCRYSTAL and CANASTERO who are current joint-favourites in horse racing betting for this one.

We don’t think that the quality in the field runs very deep in this fixture at all, so we are sticking at the head of the market for a horse racing tip.

Ballycrystal at 4/1 is our selection* (betting odds recorded 20:04 GMT on May 3rd 2021 at Betfair). He was a winner three weeks ago, ending a long winless streak of form.

The runner up from that Newcastle run has also gone on to win since, franking the form of Ballycrystal further.

So he may be worth looking at while he appears to be in the mood. He comes up 6lb for that win, which doesn’t look unreasonable. Ballycrystal carries a 3lb claimer as well.
