Here at Against the Crowd we have plenty of big races and betting propositions to look forward to in the weeks ahead….
Saturday 1st July sees us up at Newcastle for this season’s edition of the Northumberland Plate. We usually see a decent-size field go for this – the Pitman’s Derby – over the 2-mile trip. We’ll be taking an interest. There may also be something for us at York.
Saturday 8th July is Eclipse day at Sandown. I’m not sure we’ll be taking an interest in the feature race but the Coral Challenge and the Sprint Stakes are very much up our street.
Thursday 13th July & Friday 14th July – day 1 and day 2 of the July Festival at Newmarket will provide us with a couple of decent handicaps in which to target the prices.
Saturday 15th July – a bumper day with the July Cup and the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket and the John Smith’s Cup up at York.
Saturday 22nd Newbury – we don’t target too many juvenile races on ATC but we make an exception in the big-field Weatherbys Super Sprint Stakes at Newbury.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of races we’ll be targeting in the weeks ahead. We’ll know more as we get closer to the dates concerned – so be sure to check back in from time to time for updates.
Nor does this list of races represent a list of definite betting targets. We only bet when we identify good betting options at value prices. If we don’t like the way the race cuts up or we don’t like the shape of the market, we don’t offer selections just for the sake of it.
