William Hill Beverley Bullet Odds and Preview – Horse Racing Betting August 31

Tis Marvellous can reward favourite backers at Beverley

Horse Racing Betting

The William Hill Beverley Bullet is the most prestigious race of the season at Beverley for older horses.
The Westwood is the only racecourse in East Yorkshire and attracts huge crowds during the summer months. It only stages Flat racing with the Beverley Bullet being a Listed race over 5f for three-year-olds and upwards.
Beverley’s sprint course features a right-handed bend just past halfway and it can be a huge advantage to be drawn towards the inside. However, that advantage can be nullified when the ground is riding soft and there has been plenty of rain on Humberside in recent days. However, Take Cover was the first winner since 2011 to be drawn higher than four when recording back-to-back victories 12 months ago.

Beverley Bullet Trends – will a low draw prove crucial again?

  • Eight of the last 10 winners were drawn four or lower
  • Eight of the last 10 winners were rated 102 or higher
  • Only one of the last 15 winners had run less than three times that season
  • All but two of the last 15 winners had won previously over 5f

Judicial could be the each-way value in this weekend’s Beverley Bullet at a stand-out 11/1 with Ladbrokes.

Julie Camacho’s enigmatic sprinter has only won a match so far this year but is a former Group 3 winner who has been successful in both previous visits to Beverley. He does have to reverse Goodwood running with Ornate (a general 10/1) but did finish ahead of Copper Knight at the Sussex track and is better off at the weights. Stall three is also a plus for Joe Fanning’s mount.

Danzeno (9/2 with the sponsors) has a pretty good strike-rate for a sprinter and he’s a very decent handicapper. But he may not quite be up to Listed standard nowadays and will do well to win this from stall nine. Tarboosh (a general 7/1) has only run in this grade once, at Haydock in June, and finished third so also has plenty on his plate.

TIS MARVELLOUS will not be an original selection and is only a best 5/2 but everything seems to have fallen into place for the Clive Cox five-year-old and he could be worth a maximum bet.

A Group 2 winner in his two-year-old days, he didn’t really live up to expectations after that. However, he did win over 5f at Ascot a year ago and repeated the trick in a very valuable handicap at the same track last month when having the proverbial ton in hand. That form looks far superior to anything shown by this Saturday’s rivals lately. He will surely take all the beating if Ben Curtis makes the most of his draw near the rails.
