Sovereign Stakes – Race Of The Day (Thurs 14th August)


4.00 Salisbury – Sovereign Stakes

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.

Tips Entry for SBB Bloggers closes at 2.00pm

Zipster – Captain Cat (1 Picks)

You do not get many big priced winners of this race, Mac Love in 2009 was the only winner in the past 12 years bigger than 5/1, the front two in the market this year are two of the 3yo runners who don’t have the greatest of records but have produced 3 of the 12 winners but the one I like here today is Captain Cat who is up to this level for the first time but comes here in fine form, ran on GF at Newmarket as a 3yo and was a very impressive winner and has not been out on it since, been running on the AW of late with some success against some decent types but will have to up his game here today but with ground to suit I can see him going close here.

Gecko – Anjaal (1 Picks)

The fav looks useful but also short enough in price and my liking is for Fire Ship and Anjaal

Fire Ship has Kirby on board for the first time and also has only won once on this surface, tends to prefer cut so I’ll side with Anjaal who ran well lto when looking to appreciate the trip (bit more than usual) – also has ability and this could be proven here if running well – this 3 yr old has shown some good signs before such as 4th at Newmarket in the Dewhurst (Oct) and is worth backing here today

About Author

I have been in the betting game for getting on 10 years now, I was a late comer in the betting scene, never really showed much interest in the first 20 years of my life but then I came across a betting website and that all changed. I have learnt a vast amount over the last 5 years, I used to believe I could pick the winner in every race before I realised I could not and began selective betting which is the only way forward. I mainly stick with the horses but do occasionally stray off to bet on the footie or speedway. I am now 35 years old, born and bred in Ipswich and still here and forever a Tractorboy, work part time for a Cash & Carry and have a dog named Dave! That’s about it from me.
