Here at Against the Crowd we have plenty of big races and betting propositions to look forward to in the weeks ahead….
Saturday 19th August – Ripon has its annual afternoon in the spotlight with this season’s running of the Great St Wilfrid Handicap. The William Hill Silver Trophy (consolation race for the Great St Wilfrid) provides another possible betting target on the Ripon card.
Wednesday 23rd August – The Symphony Group Stakes – a handicap contested over the fast 5f strip – is the primary betting heat on Day 1 of York’s Ebor meeting. The G1 International Stakes over the 10f trip is the race for the connoisseurs.
Thursday 24th August – The Clipper Logistics Stakes over the mile trip is our focus on Day 2 of York’s Ebor meeting….
Friday 25th August – the G1 Nunthorpe Stakes where the top sprinters aged 2yo+ go at it over York’s 5f strip. The Lonsdale Cup and a 12f handicap for horses aged 3yo+ will also be on the Against the Crowdradar….
Saturday 26th August – the Betfred Ebor is the centrepiece handicap of York’s Ebor meeting. A big field goes to post over the 14f trip. The Melrose Stakes – another handicap over the 14f trip – and a 10f handicap for horses aged 3yo+ both provide excellent support. Down at Goodwood we have the Celebration Mile Stakes….
Saturday 9th September – Haydock hosts this season’s edition of the G1 Sprint Cup Stakes over the 6f trip. Over in Ireland at the Curragh, the G1 Irish Champion Stakes provides the feature.
Saturday 16th September – It’s St Leger Day up at Doncaster. The 3yo stayers go to post for the final classic of the 2017 season.
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.
