Horse Racing Longshot Tips
The third race at Newbury is the British EBF BetVictor ‘National Hunt’ Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle over 2m 4f, and we like the look of Ebonello as an each-way play in this contest.
The six-year-old makes her handicap debut in this race after winning a Sedgefield bumper in October last year, before impressing on hurdling debut to win at Wincanton in November, staying on strongly to beat Passionate Pursuit by a neck.
Below-par next time out at Plumpton in December, finishing seventh of 11, before bouncing back to finish second in a class four novice at Carlisle last month, staying on well after a blunder at the last to finish just under three lengths behind winner Poetic Music, who ran in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival earlier this month.
We think Ebonello can give a good account of herself here on handicap debut off a mark of 113 for the duo of jockey Gavin Sheehan and trainer Jamie Snowden.
Place Longshot Tips
On this page, you will find our Place Longshot tips, where we scout around all of the biggest race meetings across the UK and Ireland - including the Cheltenham Festival, the Grand National and Royal Ascot - to find a selection of horses that we expect will place in their next run. Each horse we pick will usually have odds of around Evens, with our Longshot Horse Racing Tips typically reaching a price of 10/1 or above.
We will look to update our Place Longshot page with a new bet as soon as we see a selection of Each Way horses that we fancy. The intention is to always have our Place Longshot Accumulator Tips on this page in the run-up to another busy day of racing action, and it’s something that we usually achieve due to the masses of nags running on most days of the year.
What is a Place Longshot?
Our Place Longshot consists of 5+ horses all to place in separate races. Placing is often referred to as Each Way betting, where bookmakers will provide another opportunity to claim returns if your chosen horse results in the top few places of the race. Your returns will be smaller based on where your chosen horse finishes in the race and if it results outside of the bookmaker-provided places, your bet will be classed as a losing selection, so it’s important to check how many places your chosen bookmaker offers for Each Way bets.
If your horse is able to win its respective race, you will be paid out with all of your potential returns, as betting each way sees half of the stake put on the horse to win and the other half put on the horse to place. By finishing outside first but inside the places provided, you’re given higher returns based on how close you come to winning the race, but you’ll lose the part of your stake which went towards backing the horse to win. Horse racing longshots come in several forms but backing them to place offers far more security, as punters rarely build Win Longshot Accumulator Tips due to the slim chance of picking so many winning horses in just one bet.
