Coming Up....

Here at Against the Crowd we have plenty of big races and betting propositions to look forward to in the weeks ahead….

The Punchestown 5-day NH Festival runs from Tuesday 25th April to Saturday 29th April. The meeting boasts a few valuable handicaps that we will take a betting interest in. 

Saturday 29th April brings the curtain down on the jumps season. The bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown over the 29-furlong trip is that last big handicap and we always take a betting interest in the race. 

The flat season really gets underway on Saturday 6th May and Sunday 7th May with this year’s running of the 2000 Guineas and the 1000 Guineas. The Palace House Stakes gives us a good big-field sprint to get to work with and the Suffolk Stakes is a good handicap over the 9f trip. 

On Wednesday 10th May we will certainly be having a shot at the Chester Cup – the primary handicap run at Chester’s May meeting….

On Wednesday 17th May I will be looking for value in the G2 Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes at York’s Dante meeting. I can’t resist a good sprint. There’s always value to be had. They go up the straight 6f….

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.
