The horse racing NAP of the Day for Wednesday, 1 June, according to SportsLens experts is Reikers Island. He defends his crown in the extended 3m 1f hunter chase he won at Cartmel 12 months ago (4:50). Alan Hill’s horse looks well worth a wager at a terrific 13/8 price.
Course and distance form is all-important at this unique horse racing venue, so Reikers Island ticks that box. This nine-year-old son of Yeats scored on his debut for his current handler in January, was far from disgraced at Aintree and comes to Cartmel off a win between the flags. Reikers Island is thus our horse racing NAP today.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Reikers Island win?
Oxfordshire trainer Hill has a phenomenal record with the rare runners he sends up to the Cumbrian track. Three of the five horses the stable has had competing at Cartmel have won. Backing Hill’s raiders here on the best UK betting sites would’ve seen punters some 92p up off a £1 level stake.
In Reikers Island, he has a horse once rated 140 who bolted up here last year. On that evidence, a 13-length romp, and subsequent race results, he clearly retains plenty of ability. Reikers Island had two subsequent winners in-behind him at Warwick following 235 days off the track, so there’s some substance to his form.
That victory means he concedes weight all-round here but, given the wide margin of success here 12 months ago, that may not be a problem. Reikers Island outran odds of 33/1 when seventh in the Foxhunters during the Grand National Festival at Aintree last time out under Rules. The fourth, sixth and eighth have all scored since, which again reads well.
Today’s horse racing NAP has strong form claims
Reikers Island quickly resumed winning ways in a Point-to-Point under today’s jockey Daniel Cherriman when last in action. He eases the welter burden of 12st 8lb by taking 7lb off with his claim and has already ridden two career winners under Rules at Cartmel. There is plenty to like about Reikers Island, so it’s no surprise that horse racing betting sites make him prominent in the market.
Taking everything into account, he may well repeat the dose from 12 months ago. Bottom weight Grageelagh Girl is an interesting opponent but Reikers Island just had to be our horse racing NAP on 1 June. A £10 punt on him with 888Sport at his current odds returns £26.25 if he wins. New customers who place such a wager qualify for £40 in bonuses with all the details below…
