Today’s Best Horse Racing Bet: Saturday, July 4
7 bets of £10 returns £4,670
7 bets of £1 returns £467
CARADOC (3.00 Epsom, 1m2f handicap) @ 6/1
Lightly raced for a five-year-old with just ten career starts under his belt but was improvinging rapidly at the end of last season.
Won three handicaps last year before disappointing on a Listed race on the all-weather but that run can be forgotten and better is expected on turf.
Likely to prove better than a handicapper in time and champion jockey Oisin Murphy takes the ride.
LOVE (3.40 Epsom, 1m4f Group 1) @ 5/4
This looks like a match between the front two in the market Love and Frankly Darling, and clear preference is for the Aidan O’brien-trained Love.
Hugely impressive when winning the 1,000 Guineas by more than four lengths, she looks to be the best three-year-old filly around at the moment.
Frankly Darling was impressive when winning the Ribblesdale and has Frankie Dettori aboard, but after the Coronavirus lockdown, let’s hope that 2020 will prove to be the summer of Love.
PYLEDRIVER (4.55 Epsom, 1m4f Group 1) @ 16/1
A massive field of 16 runners goes to post for the Derby and the massive pot can go the way of Pyledriver.
Hugely impressive when winning the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, it’s amazing that he is available to back at nearly three times the price of Mogul, who he beat into fourth just a fortnight ago.
That may be due to the fact that trainer William Muir is not one of racing’s most famous names and this horse would be a fair bit shorter if the name of Gosden or O’Brien featured alongside him on the racecard
Today’s Best Horse Racing Bet: Sunday, July 5
7 bets of £10 returns £1,340
7 bets of £1 returns £134
LAZULI (1.50 Sandown, 5f Group 3) @ 5/2
This Godolphin runner looks a rock-solid favourite given that he won a Listed race over this course and distance by three and a half lengths on his last start.
The runner-up in that race went on to finish a good second at Royal Ascot so the form has been boosted and Lazuli has had just five career starts so should still be improving.
Should break his duck at Group level en route to bigger things
MONTATHAM (3.00 Sandown, 1m handicap) @ 3/1
Looks good value to reverse form with his Royal Ascot conqueror Dark Vision. On that occasion in the Royal Hunt Cup, Dark Vision had a far more favourable than Montatham, who was forced to race wide of the main pack and on the unfavoured part of the track.
Suspicion is he will get a lot closer to Dark Vision here and Jim Crowly, who perhaps knows him better than Dane O’Neill, is back on board.
JAPAN (3.35 Sandown, 1m2f Group 1) @ 4/1
The Queen of racing Enable is back. Favourite to win this race for the second year in a row, her competition is far tougher this time around and she could struggle to come out on top against fellow Group 1 winners Ghaiyyath and Japan, who will be carrying my money.
He looked sluggish on his return at Royal Ascot after missing the break and being forced to race wide but he is expected to improve for that run.
His Juddmonte International success over Crystal Ocean reads well and he can gun down Ghaiyyath late on.
