The horse racing NAP of the Day for Monday, 11 April, according to SportsLens experts is Igraine. She runs in the opening 2m maiden hurdle for four-year-olds at Tramore today (4:30). This Joseph O’Brien trained filly is out best Bet of the Day at fabulous 4/1 odds.
A daughter of prolific horse racing sire Camelot, Igraine was an unlucky loser last time out. She also has some strong juvenile form, which makes her look a bit of value. Igraine is thus the horse racing NAP of the Day this Monday. Read even more reasons to back her below…
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Igraine win?
A winner on the Flat over 1m 5f when trained by her current handler’s younger brother Donnacha O’Brien, Igraine clearly came on for her first hurdles outing at Leopardstown. The race results from that day shoe her home in ninth but she was then third at Punchestown, turning the tables on Vera Verto and Brazil.
As Igraine finished in front of the subsequent Cheltenham Festival Grade 3 winner and Aintree Grand National meeting Grade 1 third, the form has a strong look to it. On a line through Vera Verto, meanwhile, she looks overpriced in relation to today’s favourite Douglas Dc. That is why we make her the horse racing NAP of the Day here.
Desperately Unlucky Not to Win at Cork
First-time blinkers nearly got Igraine home in front at Cork last time out too. She went down fighting by a nose to Only Sky when chinned on the line. There could be even more to come from Igraine, though, on today’s forecast good to yielding surface. Joseph O’Brien has a 19 per cent strike rate with his hurdlers this season too.
Igraine simply looks overpriced compared to five-race maiden Douglas Dc in this contest and was the best of the level. A £10 punt on her with 888Sport at her current price returns £50 if she wins. That wager qualifies new customers for £40 in bonuses regardless of the outcome.
