Betting News 24 April 2013

Epsom Downs RacecourseToday the 24th of April we see a huge number of horse races being held in the UK, and thanks to a major improve in the weather this increased number of racecourses giving the green light to their days races the flat season which has now started in earnest is likely to be as exciting and a packed with betting opportunities as usual!

There are no fewer than five racecourse holding meetings today and these include Epsom, Catterick and Perth who have afternoon meetings, then tonight will see the racecourses at Sedgefield and Taunton opening their doors for an evening’s racing.

The 3:40 at Catterick is an interesting race for punters it is being sponsored by E B F Richmond and is being run over 1 mile 3 furlongs, the one horse which looks likely to get past the post first is Alta Lilea however the odds may be a little restrictive as there are only four other runners in the race with the only other horse likely to worry to favourite being Gabrial the Master who may be worth a small bet at slightly better odds.

At Epsom in the 3:20 race we see a Derby Trail race and this is likely to help a few punters try and work out what horse is going to win the big race later in the season. Taking a good look through the list of runners in the race we see that the Mark Johnston trained Mister Impatience is hot favourite and will certainly take some beating.

The odds on this runner does of course give you an idea of its winning chances at it is currently trading around the 13 to 8 mark, maybe you should try and get in quick if you do intend to have a few bob on this runner.

The final race we will take a quick look at is the 7:40 this evening over at Taunton, this race has a small field with just 5 runners making it to the startling line, however the only one of those runners with any form is worthy of note is Topthorn, much like the other horses in these small fields you are not going to be offered magnificent odds if you do decide to have a punt on this runner, however with such poor opposition in the race if you do want a good run for your money this horse will certainly guarantee you that.
