The Nottinghamshire venue plays host to a National Hunt card today and we have a couple of strong fancies, plus a good value bet at 8/1 (9.00) with Bet365 in the opening race.

Longshot of the day:
2.15 Southwell – Orang Outan @ 8/1 (9.00) with Bet365
The first of our horse racing betting tips for Sunday June 2nd is Over And Above, currently rated an 11/2 (6.50) shot by SkyBet in the 2.45 at Southwell. The race is a poor one, but the seven year old stands out due to his last time out effort at Cartmel, where he stayed on to finish second. His mark has only gone up 1lb for that effort and this does look a weak race so hopefully he can build on that run. The only issue with him is consistency, a problem that everything in this field seems to be suffering from.
Broctune Papa Gio is the second of our horse racing betting tips for Sunday, running in the 4.45 at Southwell. Keith Reveley’s six year old ended last season by making his debut in handicaps, getting off to the perfect start with a cosy victory. He’s up 9lbs for that effort but that shouldn’t be an issue; not only did he win with plenty in hand, but the horse that finished second that day has since gone on to win not once but twice, including a 12 length success LTO that has netted him a hurdles rating of 120. On that form, our 7/2 (4.50) chance with BetVictor looks very generously priced indeed.
I accept that today’s bigger priced longshot selection is a bit shorter than usual (I tend to go for double figure prices) but the standard of racing today is so poor that I’m struggling to find much value. However, Orang Outan can definitely be described as value in the 2.15 at Southwell, at a current best price of 8/1 (9.00) with Bet365. The veteran gelding has only been to Southwell once before and he won, breaking his maiden in the process. He also won two races back at Huntingdon over today’s distance, a run that proved this trip isn’t a problem for him, but that earned him a hike of 8lbs in the weights. He ran respectably next time off his new mark (which remains unchanged today) despite an inadequate trip, so his new mark is probably fair, and with a 7lb claimer in the saddle it won’t be too much of an issue anyway. The only reason I can find for the big price is that he does most of his winning on softer ground – therein lies the gamble.
