Sunday Horse Racing Tips: 9th August

1:55 Thirsk – Duke Of Firenze (NB)

888 tips come in all shapes and sizes, from the young to the old, and the first horse we are siding with today is the veteran sprinter, Duke Of Firenze.

The 11-year-old will be having his 84th career start on Sunday and as well as clocking up numerous miles over the years, he has also visited the winner’s enclosure no less than nine times.

Despite his advancing years Duke Of Firenze has remained extremely competitive this season and his runs at Doncaster, Catterick and Musselburgh all saw him right in the thick of the action.

We make Duke Of Firenze (6/1) our 888 each-way nap of the day.

2:50 Deauville – Wooded (E/W)

Whilst things are reasonably quiet on home soil, Sunday's Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville is one of the anticipated races of the weekend, and here at 888 tips we believe that we have a relative dark horse for you.

Whilst all the attention and betting will be around Andre Fabre’s unbeaten Earthlight, the other French challengers will probably get overlooked in the betting, with one of those notably being Wooded – the mount of Pierre-Charles Boudot.

Fourth in the Prix Jean Prat, Wooded was no match for Pinatubo that day and he ran a little flat. He’s definitely a better horse than that and he can reward each-way punters at nice odds of 14/1.

3:10 Curragh – The Lir Jet (NAP)

The Michael Bell-trained The Lir Jet won the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot, and then was just touched off by Ventura Tormenta in the Prix Robert Papin at Chantilly.

The pair clash again on Sunday but The Lir Jet (7/2) will probably be more suited to the open Curragh track and he can turn the tables on his rival.

He is our Group 1 NAP of the day and he will be popular in horse racing betting tips this weekend.
