This Monday, 11 July, the horse racing NAP of the Day with SportsLens experts is Fortunate Fred. He contests the opening maiden hurdle at Newton Abbot over an extended 2m 2f this afternoon (1:30). Jamie Snowden’s runner looks worth a punt at tasty 2/1 odds today.
Twice placed in this sphere already, the pick of Fortunate Fred’s horse racing form to date looks strongest here. Lightly-raced for his age, this seven-year-old Cokoriko gelding could have more to offer if building on his third after a break last time out. Fortunate Fred thus rates our horse racing NAP of The Day. This is why to back him.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Fortunate Fred win?
Two fine efforts in bumpers in 2020 stand out with Fortunate Fred. Only Third Time Lucki, a 143 rated hurdler and dual Grade 2 winning novice chaser, and Bothwell Bridge proved too good for him on his racecourse debut at Huntingdon. On his second outing in that sphere, top betting sites returned him 11/8 as he filled the same spot behind dual Exeter hurdles winner Martinhal.
Those efforts in National Hunt Flat races boded very well for tackling obstacles. After 179 days off the track, Fortunate Fred fell when a length down on his hurdles debut at Sedgefield. He clearly learned plenty from that experience, however, as he chased home subsequent Kempton Park races scorer Young Lieutenant at the same venue. The front two pulled 48 lengths and upwards clear of the remainder.
That form and horse racing result looks solid enough with Fortunate Fred conceding 5lb to the winner. He couldn’t build on it, however, as he spent 429 days off the track. Fortunate Fred shaped as if in need of the run when fifth at Market Rasen on his return. The winner went on to follow-up at Catterick.
Our horse racing NAP of the Day still has potential
After another 188 days on the sidelines, Fortunate Fred conceded a 7lb sex allowance to a couple of mares at Fontwell last month, sticking to the task well despite tiring. Owners Foxtrot Racing also have Tip Top Tonto in today’s line-up, so horse racing betting sites have to try and guess which is connections’ first string.
At the odds available, though, Fortunate Fred looks the value punt to build on his latest return and finally get his head in front. He just had to be our horse racing NAP of the Day for 11 July.
