On Jubilee Bank Holiday Friday, 3 June, the horse racing NAP of the Day with SportsLens experts is Run For Pat. He contests the extended 2m 4f maiden hurdle at Down Royal this evening (6:00). Gordon Elliott’s runner looks well worth a wager at fabulous 15/8 odds.
A five-yea-old Ocovango gelding belonging to loyal horse racing owner Pam Sloan, Run For Pat has three placed efforts from six career outings. He brings one piece of particularly strong form to the table that makes him of interest here. With his trainer loving Down Royal winners, Run For Pat rates our horse racing NAP today. This is why punters should back him…
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Run For Pat win?
Elliott boasted a 25 per cent strike rate at this venue last season. One horse in every five sent to Down Royal from his Cullentra House stables throughout his training career has obliged. This is something that all the best betting sites in the UK and Ireland know only too well.
In Run For Pat, Elliott has the third home from a particularly strong Thurles maiden hurdle in February. The winner, Falcon Eight, previously won the Chester Cup on the Flat and placed in a Fairyhouse Grade 2 over Easter. This Thurles race result has thrown up several subsequent scorers with the second, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh all obliging.
An unlucky loser at Tipperary last time out, a repeat of either of those two efforts should be enough to see Run For Pat get his head in front. He is thus our horse racing NAP this Friday. A £10 punt on Run For Pat at his current price with 888Sport returns £28.75 if he does win at the seventh attempt. New customers get £40 in bonuses when signing up.
Banks specialist Tech Talk NB on steeplechase debut at Tramore
Across the border in the Republic of Ireland, Tech Talk is an intriguing debutant over regulation fences in the 2m 5f beginners’ chase at Tramore (5:36). Trained by Jim Dreaper, this seven-year-old son of Doyen shaped well on his two of his three starts this spring.
Tech Talk reversed Lingstown Point form with Loggan Lady when a fine third in the Ladies Perpetual Cup at the Punchestown Festival. The runner-up, Good Bye Sam, has back form that ties in with the Cheltenham Festival and Irish Champion hunter chase winner Billaway. Tech Talk is NB to our horse racing NAP for 3 June as a result.
Dreaper has also been a profitable stable for punters to follow at Tramore. Backing inmates of his stable blind on horse racing betting sites down the years would’ve yielded £6.67 profit to a £1 level stake. At 15/2 with 888Sport, Tech Talk looks well worth an each way play for his bow in a standard steeplechase.
