3.50 York – Ebor Handicap
The Race Of The Day is based on the most valuable race from Today’s Horse Racing Meetings and we deliver Horse Racing Tips from each blogger to see if we can come to an agreement on a selection. The statistics for today’s Race Of The Day can be seen below, apart from Overall, Month and Day all data supplied is based on either flat or jumps racing depending on the daily race, all odds are based on SP.
We have a new selection process for our bloggers, instead of relying on someone to add the selections we now have an automatic process in which when a blogger has a selection he/she can now add it to the post themselves which means you get the selections as they are ready, this means that the post is now put up without any selections in order for it to be available for the bloggers to add them.
Also because there is not always someone around to edit the post with the selections we will now leave this up to you to work out, it is simple enough, when the stated closing time has passed then you can decided whether there is a bet or not, each runner will have the number of selections next to it and for each pick it is clear then that is a 1pt stake, so a runner with 3 picks and then two runners with 1 pick apiece would be a 2pt win, if there is not outright pick then it is deemed a No Bet. We advised all bets of £10 per tip clear, so a 2pt win would be a £20 win.

Darylrogerson – Elidor (1 Picks)
Consistent in a couple of handicaps that have really held their form and didn’t see the trip home over 2 miles at Ascot last time out. Could be ridden prominently in a race that doesn’t particularly have any stand out front runners and could take some pegging back.
Zipster – De Rigueur (1 Picks)
I have this between De Rigueur and Elidor, there is a lot to like about the Marco Botti trained De Rigueur who comes here on the back of a couple of class 2 wins and has only been put up 4lbs for his most recent win, a runner who has a record of 5-8 at left handed tracks and who is 2-3 when returning from a 31-60 day break. Elidor is not in the form of De Rigueur having been well beaten last time out, comes here 7lbs higher than his last win which came at Thirsk off 92, one factor which I do not like is that he is 0-8 when back on track within 30 days.
I am going to go with De Rigueur who is going in the right direction, only a 4lb rise for his most recent win and at a course that he will enjoy, I believe he will be thereabouts today.
