Following a 9/4 (backed into 6/5) winner yesterday, SportsLens tipsters give another horse racing NAP of the day, this time for Thursday, 13 January. Today’s selection is Art Of Diplomacy in the extended 3m 1f handicap hurdle at Catterick (3:10). This horse looks the best value Bet of the Day at odds of 5/4.
Now trained by Dr Richard Newland, who does well with his northern raiders, Art Of Diplomacy is 5lb well-in here. Due to race off 115 in future assignments, he is ahead of that mark in this contest. He also shaped well when runner-up over this trip last time out. That is the main reason why Art Of Diplomacy rates the NAP of the Day for 13 January. See the case in full for our experts’ latest Bet of the Day below…
Why will NAP of the Day Art Of Diplomacy win?
This six-year-old Archipenko gelding scored on his second try over 3m or further on his penultimate start. Art Of Diplomacy kept on well for a winning stable bow at Ludlow off 102 in November. He moved to the Newland yard from the Michael and David Easterby team during the autumn. A change of scene appears to have given him a new lease of life.
Art Of Diplomacy gave a whopping two stone (28lb) and a 4 1/4 lengths beating to previous Newcastle scorer and horse racing betting sites favourite Our Idic Boy around Ludlow. He clearly ran well in defeat off 8lb higher at Hereford when last in action earlier this month. Newland isn’t averse to turning out horses again quickly before they must run off their revised mark either.
Only Ben Case’s mare Gazette Bourgeoise, now rated 122, proved just over a length too good for Art Of Diplomacy the last day. The front two pulled miles clear of the others to give the form a solid look. Art Of Diplomacy has also handled soft ground on the Flat before, so should be just fine on the forecast going at Catterick.
With the stable in decent form with two winners from its last six runners coming into today, and Sam Twiston-Davies once again in the saddle, a bold bid from this well-in horse looks assured. A £25 punt on Art Of Diplomacy at his current odds returns £65.25. If he can’t go one better, then QuinnBet refunds half of losing stakes from the first day of betting if punters place three qualifying bets after signing up.
