Today’s Best Horse Racing Bet: Sunday, January 26
13:30 Sedgefield – Back Oscar Wilde @ 2/1 with William Hill
After a win in the north with Lady Buttons on Saturday afternoon, we are staying up there for our horse racing bet of the day on Sunday. We go further north and up to Sedgefield where we are selecting Oscar Wilde.
He runs in the 1:30pm, the second race on the card, and after two eye-catching runs over fences in his last two starts, he is taken to finally get his head in front here.
He began over fences with a 3rd at Hexham, and was then stepped up in trip at Wetherby. He was travelling very well there and looked in with a chance of winning when falling to end his run. He then went to Market Rasen and finished second, which was another good run and on the back of those he is fancied to go close here.
He drops down in trip by a couple of furlongs for this race, but with this track being a stiffer test it should still bring his stamina into play.
Manofthemoment rates the clear danger here, and won last time out but has an 8lb rise for that win, which on the face of it looks very harsh. He too has had just three runs over fences so could still be improving, but the handicapper has not helped him at all with the rise in the weights.
With that in mind, Oscar Wilde is one we have had our eye on recently and he is backed here to finally get off the mark over fences at Sedgefield on Sunday.
