Just 1 class 1 race in the UK this weekend due to Meydan, but although there was no racing on Good Friday in Ireland they more than make up for it for Easter Sunday and Monday with 9 class 1 races.
2.15 Kempton (Listed) 1m
This time of year you have to bet cautiously as horses are running fresh and the change of weather can have positive or negative effects. So what I am going to do here is back 2 in this race.
Restorer is the the 7/2 2nd favourite here and the horse that I think will win. He won fresh last time out in a listed race after a year off and is capable of doing it again. In that race he beat Top Notch Tonto in 3rd who is a listed winner and Wannabe Yours who has a group 3 under his belt.
Our Channel is my plan b as he has match fitness on his side and is a course and distance winner. Although he hasn’t any black type races to his name, his official rating suggests that he is good enough to win at this level.
Back Restorer 0.91 point at 7/2 with Ladbrokes
Back Our Channel for 1.09 point at 11/4 with Ladbrokes
NB – Ladbrokes refund your stake up to £25 if your horse comes 2nd in any Saturday Channel 4 race!
So if either win it works out at an equal profit of +2.09 points and if they both lose a 2 point loss. But more if 1 finishes second or the SP increases on the winning horse.
