Idaho Could Build Off Breakout Performance at Ascot

Idaho Could Build Off Breakout Performance at Ascot   Source: Turftalk360 via Twitter Idaho made his first major statement of his flat career by winning the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot. The Irish horse delivered a fine performance to notch only the third win of his career, beating defending champion Dartmouth in the process. Aidan O’Brien’s charge will now return to the racecourse to take on another talented field in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. He will face the daunting task of unseating another champion from the winners’ circle, with Highland Reel making his return to the race where he triumphed last season. However, Idaho’s performance at the racecourse last time out has given bookies confidence that he should be able to challenge the established runners in the race, with odds as […]


Jack Milner of BetVictor.com thinks Atletico can score on Monday

Jack Milner of BetVictor.com thinks Atletico can score on Monday Soft ground made life difficult for punters at the weekend, throwing up some perhaps surprise results at both Newbury and Newmarket. God Given was an impressive winner at the latter, and looks a progressive filly to keep an eye towards the back end of the campaign. She is yet another 3yo filly by second season sire Nathaniel, who has put plenty of stamina into the pedigree of his offspring. Another 3yo filly by Nathaniel is Enable who could potentially run in next weekend’s King George at Ascot and is now 7/4 with BetVictor to win a third successive Gp 1 over a mile and a half. Elsewhere, it was another spectacular Saturday for trainer Richard Fahey, winning the £250,000 Weatherbys for the third year in […]


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 […]
