Our free horse racing betting tips for Friday August 2nd all come from Day 4 of the 2013 Glorious Goodwood meeting. We’ve got an interesting 16/1 (17.00) chance with BetVictor lined up in the Betfred Mile, as well as a 13/2 (7.50) shot (pictured) for the big race of the day, the Group 2 King George Stakes. Read on for all the details…
3.40 Goodwood – Tickled Pink @ 13/2 (7.50) with Totesport
5.25 Goodwood – Goodwood Mirage @ 4/1 (5.00) with BetVictor
Longshot of the day:
3.05 Goodwood – Fire Ship @ 16/1 (17.00) with BetVictor
The first of Friday’s horse racing betting tips is Lady Cecil’s Tickled Pink (pictured), who runs in the 3.40 at Goodwood (the Group 2 King George Stakes). Swiss Spirit is all the rage this morning but at the current best odds of 13/2 (7.50) with Totesport, our selection is far better value. Since dropping to the minimum trip, the grey filly has won her only race, a Group 3 at Sandown, and she’s still quite lightly raced as so is open to further improvement. She won’t want too much rain between now and the race, however.
Goodwood Mirage is the second of today’s horse racing betting tips, running in the 5.25 at Goodwood. The three year old colt won on his only visit so far to the course whose name he bears and that was over just a furlong shorter than today’s trip, which shouldn’t be a concern. A winner on both good and soft ground, I doubt he’ll be affected by the weather this morning and at the current odds of 4/1 (5.00) with BetVictor, I think he’s a great bet.
Our bigger priced Each-Way tip for Friday 2nd August goes in the Betfred Mile (3.05 at Goodwood). We previewed this race a couple of weeks back and put up two big priced tips (both run today) but since that time, we have come to marginally prefer Fire Ship, who is still a 16/1 (17.00) shot with BetVictor despite having won a Listed race since we wrote that Betfred Mile preview. Clearly in good heart, he ticks all of the important boxes and although he’s no longer available to back at the 25/1 of a fortnight ago, today’s odds still represent value in my eyes.
