We managed to find another winner (and another non-runner!) from yesterday’s horse racing betting tips. Here are three more tips for Sunday August 18th, where we are pretty sweet on the chances of a Mark Johnston filly at Pontefract and have lined up an Each-Way value bet at the same meeting, currently priced at 11/1 (12.00) with BetVictor. Read on for full details…
3.00 Southwell – Dark Energy @ 6/1 (7.00) with Coral
3.45 Pontefract – Galician @ 11/2 (6.50) with Ladbrokes
Longshot of the day:
5.20 Pontefract – Script @ 11/1 (12.00) with BetVictor
The first of our horse racing betting tips for Sunday August 18th is the Mark Johnston trained Galician, who runs in the 3.45 at Pontefract. The four year old filly has been in good form of late, winning two of her last three starts (including the valuable International Stakes at Ascot) before finishing a creditable fourth in Goodwood’s Betfred Mile. She drops back down to 6f today, a trip where she’s also had success, and her only run at today’s venue resulted in a narrow runner-up finish. Her current odds of 11/2 (6.50) with Ladbrokes seem generous to me.
In the 3.00 at Southwell, Fergal O’Brien’s Dark Energy is the second of our horse racing betting tips. Making just his fourth start over fences and already looking to complete a hat trick, he looks progressive and can take another step forward here today. The way he recovered from a blunder to win last time out suggests he has a great attitude and he’s only up 3lbs for that success, which seems unlikely to stop him. The 6/1 (7.00) on offer with Coral this morning is simply too big and should be snapped up before it disappears.
Our bigger priced longshot tip for Sunday August 18th is Alan Berry’s Script, who looks a huge price this morning at 11/1 (12.00) with BetVictor. The filly is really consistent, finishing third on four of her last five starts (and she was fourth the other time!) but she has been given a slight break by the handicapper after her last time out effort (down 2lbs) and she’s now just 4lbs higher than her last winning mark. With a 7lb claimer taking the ride today, she looks nicely handicapped at the foot of the weights and at the current odds, she represents a good value Each-Way bet.
