Betting News & Racing Tips June 25th 2013
To commemorate the very sad recent death of one of Britain’s most successful and respected horse racing Trainers, Henry Cecil, the racing journalist Brough Scott has just released his book, “Henry Cecil – Trainer of Genius”, which is a look into the life and also the ups and downs of this remarkable man.
Henry Cecil was a household name in the racing industry and his recent battle with cancer was both tragic yet inspiring, and if you have an interest in racing in the UK or in general then this book is well worth a read.
The weather is of course being typically British in the UK and with one minute the sun shining, then the next thing you know the heavens open up and soaks race goers, with the weather being what it is mean that it is proving difficult for form studiers to try and predict the winner of any of the days runners due to the ground at most tracks constantly changing as the days races progresses due to the inclement weather.
Racecourses holding meetings today are: Newton Abbot, Newbury, Beverley, Brighton and over in Ireland Ballinrobe is holding a full card of races, we have as usual had a good look through the list of runners and riders and it is over to Brighton we head to hopefully showcase you one horse which may just lead the rest of the field home today.
The race which has taken our eye is the 4:15 race at Brighton this afternoon, and this race is sponsored by Genting Casino and the race category is a Maiden Auction Stakes race which is run just a tad over just five furlongs.
There are a total of ten runners declared in this race and the one which we feel has the best chance of winning, based on its run last time is Zafraaj, the jockey who is tasked with leading the horse first past the winning post is Luke Morris and if you get in and place your wagers early on this race you should be able to lock in a lot of value.
Due to the Flat season being well underway now in the UK you will of course find this race is being offered by a lot of bookmakers as a best odds guarantee race so do take an early price as by doing so when guaranteed ante post betting are offered as you will not lose out should the odds move on this selection!
