Thank you for joining me once again racing fans. Today, I’m taking a look at the Jumps meeting at Wexford and I have two betting tips for you to get stuck into and I think they both have very good chances. I advise playing both of these as singles only, as the Wexford card is wide open.
On Saturday, we’ll be heading for the Jumps meeting at Kilbeggan, where I have another bunch of betting tips that we may be able to combine into some multiples, keep your eyes peeled for more on those.
This week has been a quiet one in terms of Jumps racing, but that’s all set to change soon. The new Jumps season is starting to ramp up and the first of my ante post betting tips will be coming your way any day now.
For Friday at Wexford I have an interesting new customer deal from VBet for you to take a look at. Rather than just one offer, there are several for you to choose from.
The first of my betting tips for Friday comes in the 3-mile Handicap Hurdle where there are a few in with decent chances. I think these Stayers’ races can be very insightful, especially when it comes to the younger runners in the field.
Mr Social showed some pretty decent improvement last time out and it would be no surprise to see him run a big race again off a low mark. In fact, I’d he is in with a decent shout if he can repeat that effort. Another interesting one in this race is Tango Theatre, who runs for John McConnell. Although he is fairly consistent, he has become a little bit tricky to win with, despite having some decent form in the book. It is a bit concerning that he hasn’t managed to get his head in front after 15 starts over Hurdles.
So, I think Ocean Legacy represents the best betting tip for this race and he has some very good form here at Wexford too. He last ran here in May, when he won a really deep Handicap in pretty decisive fashion. He was strong through the line and has since won at Downpatrick over 2m 7f, just a furlong short of this trip. He is weighted to go well here and should give us a good run for our money.
For my second betting tip for Friday, I’m looking at the Beginners' Chase and to be fair, there are some runners in this field that are open to plenty of improvement from their Hurdles form, if they can carry it over to the larger obstacles.
Percy Warner has been very disappointing since leaving Gordon Elliott’s yard. He won his first two races over Hurdles for Elliott, before being sent over to Henry De Bromhead, but has shown very little over fences in his last four starts, so you have to wonder what’s going on with him. I’ve watched his last few races and he jumps fine, so I just have to assume he wasn’t quite right. Maybe this time he can turn it around, but you’d be taking an awful lot on trust.
I think that Gordon Elliott’s runner, Riaan, is the better option here. Admittedly we haven’t seen him since Cheltenham, where he was pulled up in the Coral Cup, but going down a class here, he should find this race much more to his liking. He has some very good form in the book over Hurdles, having beaten Spanish Harlem and San Salvador previously, so there is definitely plenty of substance there, which for me, makes Riaan the best bet of the race.
Wexford 18:05 – Ocean Legacy
Wexford 18:40 – Riaan
Once again punters, thanks for checking out my best betting tips column and I’m hoping we can have a nice strong finish to the week. I’ll be back with more selections soon, but in the meantime, you can always keep in touch through any of my social media channels.
