Horse Racing Betting Tips
Words: Sarah Baker
The crowds may not be back at the biggest homes of UK Horse Racing just yet, but that doesn’t mean the action is less than impressive. For the past weeks, race meetings have been flooding in from all the top tracks around the country, and now we’re heading to North Yorkshire for our annual visit to Doncaster and the world-renowned St Leger.
Alongside all the latest odds in horse racing, we have a host of online uk betting tips, including a range of live football betting markets and a wide range of online casino games including online slot games, live casino and table games.
Thankfully racing is getting back to some normality, and although the fixtures are coming thick and fast crowds can see the usual structure which includes the St Leger taking its normal perch as the highlight of the September racing scene. Held annually since 1776, it’s the oldest of the five British classics and is the final leg of the English Triple Crown which also features the Derby and the 2000 Guineas. But that isn’t the only race to look out for, and we’ve picked out which stars could shine in the key races.
Jim Crowley is one to watch in UK horse racing of late having picked up some impressive Group One wins at York. Here at Doncaster, it's Albasheer who’ll give him the chance to add to his tally for trainer Owen Burrows. Still, a novice which has had one race this season, it was on this course which gives some confidence in his 7/4 odds in the betting markets.
Handicap races are a big feature in many of the major race meetings across the UK, and Doncaster is no different. This race looks to be very open in terms of those with strong form, and one who catches the eye in the each-way betting markets is Mountain Peak. Returning after a month-long break for Ed Walker, he was successful last time out over a similar distance, so this shouldn’t prove to be too testing for him.
The build-up to the St Leger, the Park Stakes is always a top quality race, and it’s William Haggas trained One Master who catches the eye in this season's renewal. Second in the City of York Stakes last time out, he has previous Group One form having won at Longchamp back in 2019. A solid 9/2 in the betting, he could be the one to watch here.
The highlight race of the day is the St Leger, and with the likes of Kameko choosing to bypass the meeting in favour, it looks a very open contest. Royal Ascot and Voltigeur winner Pyledriver heads the betting markets with significantly shorter odds than his previous 16/1 and 10/1 victories and although he looks to be in good form, it’s Hukum that ticks all the boxes for us at 21.co.uk.
A winner last time out at Newbury after a 59-day break, he is lightly raced which could work in his favour on a course such as Doncaster, and is currently odds of 10/3 to take the victory here.
Doncaster Course Guide
Normally staging the first and last flat meetings of the season Doncaster is one of the fairest courses in the country. Generally flat, it suits many runners due to a lack of hills with only one slight uphill section to contend with on the back end of the course. As it is a free draining course ground can often be a little softer than others so look for horses with form on that ground when making a selection.
|Portland Handicap||Mountain Peak||12/1|
|Park Stakes||One Master||3/1|
