Betting News 22nd May 2013
If you fancy placing a wager on a horse race today, then you will be pleased to learn there are no fewer than six racecourses holding meetings today, and as the clocks went forward a number of weeks ago that also means that plenty of evening meetings are available to complement the usual afternoon meetings.
This afternoon race meetings include Lingfield, Huntingdon and Southwell, whilst the evening’s racecourses, all of which have plenty of betting opportunities include Kempton, Worcester and over in Ireland the Sligo racecourse has a full card of races being held this evening.
Over at Huntingdon where the going has been officially declared as Good, Good to Soft in places there will be a lot of betting activity on the 3:40 race this afternoon, this race is the Smiths Metal Centres Novices Hurdle run over 2 miles and with not much form on offer then some generous odds are currently available.
One runner which catches the eye is Sea Lord, who romped home on his last outing, however due to that very recent success we wouldn’t expect the odds to be over generous, so try and get on early if you do fancy a flutter on this horse.
Taking a look at the evening meeting at Kempton tonight it is the 8:30 race which is stirring up a lot of interest in the betting markets, this is the Irish Night race which is being run over 7 furlongs at Kempton, being an all weather track the going for this race as is usual has been declared as standard, and there are plenty of interesting runners taking part in this race.
If there is the usual early pace often found on Kempton’s 7 furlong races then one horse which could be worth considering when you are looking for the likely winners is Summer Dance, whilst his form does not jump off the page at you like some of the other runners such as Bold Rings’ form does, if the race does see a good early pace being run then it may suit the running style of this horse.
Remember that many betting sites are offering guaranteed best betting bonuses on many of today’s races, and as such it will pay dividends for you to take the early prices found at those sites safe in the knowledge that should the odds increase during the day then you are going to get the best odds available.
