Today is Coral Eclipse day at Sandown Park, and although the quality of the race has been somewhat diminished by the unfortunate injury to heavy favourite So You Think, it has certainly opened the race up a little. We have an interesting outsider for you at a juicy price of 33/1 (34.00) with Paddy Power, as well as two other free horse racing tips…
Longshot of the day:
Sandown 3.45 – Cogito @ 34.00 (33/1) with Paddy Power
Our first horse racing tip for Saturday 7th July is Spirit Quartz in the 2.05 at Sandown. A recent fifth place finish in Royal Ascot’s King’s Stand Stakes is the pick of the form for me and Frankie Dettori getting back on board is a huge positive. Finishing ahead of today’s favourite on that occasion and with a proven track record on softer ground, the always consistent Spirit Quartz looks the most likely winner at a current best price of 6.00 (5/1) with Bet365.
Our second free horse racing tip for the day is away from the main horse racing action at Sandown in the 4.10 at Beverley, where It’s A Privilege looks to have a very good chance of shedding his maiden tag. A runner up on both of his last two starts, the three year old is still improving and should not be troubled by the soft Yorkshire ground. The best price of 2.75 (7/4) with BetVictor is not massive, but could look that way come the end of the race.
Our longshot tip is in today’s feature race, the Eclipse Stakes, where Brian Meehan’s horse Cogito looks ridiculously overpriced. Already a course winner, the 1m 2f trip is an unknown (but expected to suit) and the ground should not be an issue, given how well the three year old colt stayed on in similar conditions at Royal Ascot, when finishing 8th in the St James’ Palace Stakes (despite being repeatedly hampered in a race that simply did not go his way). The current best price is 40/1 (41.00) with BetVictor and that may interest you more, but they only bet 1/5 the odds Each-Way about the selection. Given that we’re realistically looking at place money, we’ll be taking the slightly superior 1/4 the odds 33/1 (34.00) offered by Paddy Power.
All three of these recommended horse racing tips are best odds guaranteed, so make sure you take the current price. Even if the starting price is bigger, you’ll be paid at the highest odds!
