Horse Betting Tips For Friday

Steve Mullington with his best Cork tips, Sandown tips and York tips, with a NAP, a NB and a Longshot running on Friday...

7.00 Cork – Sumiha (NAP)

It’s the Group 3 Munster Oaks at Cork on Friday evening and Dermot Weld is no stranger to send out any kind of Oaks winner as we well know.

Runner up on both her last two runs over this 1m4f trip here at Cork, I would like to think that this Aga Khan-owned filly will be right there on the premises again and she is probably the one they all have to beat.

Weld obviously thinks this daughter of Seas The Stars is special as he’s given her an Irish St Leger entry in September.

Danger: Scarlett O’Hara

5.00 Sandown – Cock And Bull (NB)

The Michael Bell-trained three-year-old Cock And Bull is having one hell of a season and can be a contender once more in this 0-70 rated 1m6f Handicap.

The gelding has excelled on the all-weather since being gelded last September and his one and only run on turf resulted in a 1¼ runner-up berth at Windsor over 1m4f.

This step up to 1m6f should suit Cock And Bull whose father was a French Guineas and Prix de la Foret winner.

Danger: Allonsy 

4.10 York – Scampi (E/W Longshot)

Raceshare owners certainly had some fun with the Andrew Balding-trained Scampi last season and they can do so again with a big run expected on his seasonal bow at his favourite racecourse.

Six-year-old Scampi has been a credit to his trainer Balding since his first run in 2020. From 30 career runs he has won five times, finished the runner-up another five times and has placed third, once again - five times.

Those statistics essentially mean that every time he runs he has a 50% chance of making the podium, hence me recommending him as an each-way play in this 1m2½f contest.

Danger: Machete 


Horse Betting Tips For Saturday

Steve Mullington with his best Sandown tips and York tips with a NAP, a NB and a Longshot running on Saturday...

2.40 Sandown – Adaay In Devon (NAP)

Silvestre De Sousa is picking up more and more winning rides since his return to the UK and he is the man who can bring home Adaay in Devon in front in the Listed Scurry Stakes at Sandown.

Rod Millman’s three-year-old filly has been a revelation over the sprint trips both last season and this, and it would be fair to say that over five furlongs she’s a little pocket rocket.

I can see De Sousa burning them all off from the front today and therefore make Adaay In Devon my 888sport NAP of the day.

Danger: No Half Measures

3.00 York – Klondike (NB)

This Listed Ebor Grand Cup Stakes is the kind of race William Haggas targets and he has booked the best jockey in the business to ride his charge Klondike this afternoon.

Fourth in the Jorvik Handicap here a month ago, Haggas’ four-year-old looks sure to come on for the run and the step up to 1m6f should be right up this Galileo colt’s street.

Trading at around 8/1 in our antepost betting market, Haggas supporters will be keen to get involved with this Moore ridden runner.

Danger: Divine Jewel

1.50 York – Andaleep (E/W Longshot)

Held as the opening race on this York card every year is the Queen Mother's Cup Handicap (For Female Amateur Jockeys) and what a conundrum it is.

Run over 1m4f, the best lady jockeys usually come to the fore in this specialised race and I can see Brodie Hampson getting a good tune out of the top-weighted Andaleep.

The Kubler-trained eight-year-old is a 90 rated horse and has frankly been racing in a lot better company than some of his rivals today. I don’t believe 10st 9lb will inconvenience him and he looks good for a place at the very least.

Danger: Chase The Dollar


Horse Betting Tips For Sunday

Steve Mullington with his best Chantilly tips, with a NAP, a NB and a Longshot running on Sunday...

Prix Du Bois – Hot Darling (NAP)

Bonjour my British chums from beautiful Chantilly where I am in attendance and I am particularly excited about the chances of the Amy Murphy-trained Hot Darling in the Prix Du Bois.

Bought for just 25,000gns at Tattersalls sales last year, Hot Darling has already repaid that investment with back-to-back wins in France. 

The daughter of Too Darn Hot followed up her debut success at Chantilly with a Listed victory at Vichy, landing her owners £40,000 in prize-money already.

Owners Daniel Macauliffe and Anoj Don enjoyed a winner on this corresponding card last season and their chances of landing another are very high.

Danger: Arabie

Prix de Diane - L'equilibriste (NB)

Chantilly trainer Tim Donworth has a lovely filly on his hands in the shape of L'equilibriste and I think she has what it takes to land the feature race in France on Sunday – the Prix de Diane.

This daughter of Dream Ahead showed a brilliant turn of foot in the Prix Finlande under Maxime Guyon and slightly easier conditions will further enhance her chances in the French Oaks.

Danger: Rock’n Swing

Prix Pawnees – Miss Cantik (E/W Longshot) 

Amy Murphy’s Miss Cantik ran in a very hot renewal of the Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown last time out and was far from disgraced, which gives her some sort of an each-way shout here in this Listed affair.

If the same tactics are adopted here as were used at Sandown, then she may just slip the field coming off the Château bend and may prove impossible to peg back.

Already a two-time winner in France, she can reward her each-way supporters today.

Danger: Dschingis Star
