Cliffs Of Moher must bounce back from Epsom disappointment

Cliffs Of Moher must bounce back from Epsom disappointment   Cliffs Of Moher was the leading contender to claim his first major crown at the Epsom Downs following an impressive start to his fledgling career. The Irish horse had won two of his three races ahead of the event and was considered the favourite to win the Investec Derby, with Ryan Moore in the saddle. Aidan O’Brien sent six horses to compete in the race, and although Cliffs of Moher was the spearhead of his challenge for the crown, the three-year-old was beaten out for the crown. Rank outsider Wings of Eagles rose to the occasion with a flawless performance to defeat his stablemate, clinching only the second win of his career. The result was a disappointment for Cliffs Of Moher and Moore, although he […]


Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com marks your card on a busy Saturday

Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com marks your card on a busy Saturday There is plenty of rain forecast at Newbury this afternoon and in the opener, I expect to see Johnny Barnes (1.50) go close for John Gosden and Adam Kirby who did us a favour courtesy of Harry Angel in the July Cup last weekend. The selection is 8/1 with BetVictor and that looks a fair each way price for a horse who finished runner up in a Gp 1 over a mile on soft ground as a juvenile. The 3/1 favourite Realize has run well on soft ground in the past and the booking of Ryan Moore suggest connections feel he has an excellent chance of landing his hat-trick – note he is still 10lbs lower in the handicap on turf than his all-weather […]


Jack Milner of BetVictor.com has that Friday Feeling about a few

Jack Milner of BetVictor.com has that Friday Feeling about a few There’s a cracking seven-race card at Newbury where I’m very sweet on the chances of Godolphin’s Dubhe (1.40) the first division of the 7f maiden. There isn’t a better bred horse on the card, with the Dubawi colt the first foal of Irish Oaks winner Great Heavens, and connections are likely to have similar classic aspirations next season. Entered in both the National Stakes and next year’s Derby; he looks smart enough to make a winning debut. The boys in blue can complete a quick-fire double with Stage Magic (2.10) under the excellent William Buick. Much like stablemate Dubhe, Charlie Appleby’s colt is another beautifully-bred juvenile and, after last month’s excellent second on debut at Haydock, can go one better in the second division […]


Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com with Thursday’s best bets

Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com with Thursday’s best bets Market Rasen’s Summer Plate is one of the highlights of the summer jumps season and at this stage I am keen on the chances of Peter Bowen’s Curious Carlos (8/1 with BetVictor) and likely to be 10lbs better off with his Aintree conqueror Mad Jack Mytton for the two-and-a-half lengths he was behind the latter at Aintree. Do note, however, that there is not much pace in the race and I would want to see Little Pop and/or Rossetti make Friday’s line up before recommending an interest. At Leicester this afternoon, I expect to see a better run from Daira Prince (3.15) after the selection was bogged down on soft ground at York last time. As a son of Dubawi out of a Sadler’s Wells mare, you […]


Charlie NcCann previews Wednesday’s cards

Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com previews Wenesday’s cards Richard Hannon has nominated the Champion Stakes at Newmarket as his main end-of-season target for his St James’s Palace Stakes winner Barney Roy but surely, the colt will take in the Juddmonte International at York next month. That looks the ideal next race for the Eclipse runner up and if, and when, he gets the green light for the Knavesmire he won’t be 5/2 with BetVictor for long. Thunderstorms are expected to hit Britain during Wednesday and that obviously tempers confidence behind today’s recommendations given underfoot conditions are the most important factor in any horserace. Hayley Turner makes her latest eagerly-awaited comeback at Yarmouth this evening when she rides Hart Stopper (5.45) for Michael Bell in the Lady Riders’ Handicap.  The selection has won two out of his […]


Jack Milner of BetVictor.com aims you in the right direction for Monday’s winners

Jack Milner of BetVictor.com aims you in the right direction for Monday’s winners   Cardsharp was another impressive 2yo winner for trainer Mark Johnston, winning the Gp 2 July Stakes last week at Newmarket, and is 33/1 with BetVictor for next year’s 2000 Guineas on the Rowley Mile. That ante-post market is headed by Ballydoyle’s Gustav Klimt after his remarkable success in Saturday’s Superlative Stakes and BetVictor cut him to the 7/1 from 14s favourite for the first classic of next season, and 14/1 from 20s for The Derby at Epsom. The 33/1 about Cardsharp looks a fair price for the Middleham handler, who has two well-fancied runners under Joe Fanning at Ayr. Powerful Love must go close in first-time head-gear and stablemate Poet’s Prince is likely to be a warm favourite for the opener. […]
