Boxing Day Bets

Huge day of racing and we’ve got our NAP, Win Treble, E/W Lucky 15 and two request a bets for you guys…

The greatest day of a gamblers year is upon us and as per usual, we’re going big this boxing day. In this post you’ll be able to find all of our tips and bets with reasoning for the busiest day of the racing calendar with no less than 11, yes ELEVEN race meetings across the UK and Ireland. Good luck!


15:05 Kempton – Might Bite

Well, there’s plenty that can be said about this massively talented 8-y-o chaser. He’s currently on a four race win streak picking up two Grade 1 victories in the process. He infamously fell at the last fence in the Kauto Star Novices Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day last year when being 10 lengths clear but since then he has picked himself up and kicked on with his chasing career to that good of a standard it has now seen him as 11/8 favourite for the King George VI Chase this year. He isn’t against a field of donkeys however with the likes of Bristol De Mai, Thistlecrack & Fox Norton all behind him in the betting however we believe he will have just too much for them this time out. A big run will see him head the market as the hot favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March so it will be more than interesting to see how he performs.


12:30 Wetherby – Dick Darsie

12:40 Wolverhampton – Guvenor’s Choice

14:35 Fontwell – Knocknanuss

We’ve gone big for boxing days win treble backing it at just over 23/1. The first one in it is the Sue Smith trained Dick Darsie. He is yet to get off the mark under rules in nine races but now racing off a mark of 93, the lowest he’s ever run off, we believe his first win is imminent. He’s a winner over the three mile distance in point to points and after an impressive run last time out and now off a lower mark, he should be hard to beat. We head to the flat for our next pick Guvenor’s Choice. Running in the Class 3 Nursery, the Karl Burke trained 2-y-o will be looking to make it two wins in three races. He’s a course and distance winner and was unlucky on handicap debut off a mark of 82 last time out but now off a mark of 81 in a small field, he should take all the beating. Our third and final pick for the treble is Knocknanuss. He’s yet to win so far this season however he made a convincing hurdling debut in May winning a maiden hurdle at Plumpton by 12 lengths. With the rust now firmly off from his 204 day break during the summer he looks a cracking price at 6/4.


13:55 Kempton – West Approach

14:10 Wetherby – Delusionofgrandeur

14:15 Market Rasen – Strongly Suggested

14:45 Wetherby – Modulus

Well well well, what a potential gem we have in store for you here with this 15014/1 e/w lucky 15. The first one in this mammoth lucky 15 is Colin Tizzard’s West Approach. You may remember us napping this horse at Cheltenham in November when it ran an absolute no show but he bounced back at Exeter at the start of this month winning nicely with Robbie Power on board. He’s one of the outsiders for this race but at 9/1 and with SkyBet paying three places on it, he’s in with a great chance of getting in the top three at least. The next one in the bet is Delusionofgrandeur. In a Grade 3 that doesn’t look as though it has much depth, he looks to have a grand chance at 11/2. He won off a mark of 134 last time and now up 8lbs, the handicapper hasn’t done him any favours but if gets the run of the race he should be more than capable of getting in the mix. The Clugston Lincolnshire National Handicap Chase at Market Rasen is where our next pick comes from in the shape of J P McManus’s Strongly Suggested. He finished third behind our previous pick Delusionofgrandeur but now off a lower mark from that race and going over an extra two furlongs which he should cherish, there is no reason as to why he shouldn’t be a big player in this race. Our final pick is the biggest price of the four but one we think is massively overpriced. Modulus is the 20/1 outsider for the Premier League Betting At 188bet Handicap Hurdle at Wetherby but those are odds we reckon could turn out to be value of the meeting. He completed a hat-trick of wins in his final three races of last season but on his season reappearance over two miles at this course, he led from the front but was simply outstayed after 235 days off a race track. With that run out the way and the rust hopefully all but gone off the horse along with his step up to just over two and a half miles, he will hopefully defy the odds and run a massive race.
