The horse racing NAP of the Day on Friday, 15 July, according to SportsLens experts, is hurdles debutant Big Bill Barley running in Ireland this evening. We also have a NB bet in the featured Listed race at Hamilton Park.
Get the lowdown on both of our Friday fancies in horse racing action later on today with our experts making the case for these below:
- 6:00 Kilbeggan – BIG BILL BARLEY (NAP) @ 7/4 with 888Sport
- 7:47 Hamilton – ZAIN SARINDA (NB) @ 7/2 with 888Sport
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Big Bill Barley win?
Irish champion jumps jockey Paul Townend heads to Kilbeggan for one ride in course bumper Big Bill Barley in the extended 1m 7f maiden hurdle (6:00). Trained by Willie Mullins for Luke McMahon, a big supporter of the yard, this five-year-old Apsis gelding is bound to attract interest on top betting sites given those connections.
Although the form of Big Bill Barley’s racecourse debut victory here in an Irish National Hunt Flat race doesn’t look strong, he acts on a sound surface. Mullins boasts a 32 per cent strike rate with his Kilbeggan runners over the last five seasons, so that’s an obvious plus. A combination of soft / heavy ground and the extra distance of an extended bumper at Listowel beat Big Bill Barley last month.
It looks significant that Townend comes to the track just to ride him. That may be a tip in itself. Big Bill Barley thus rates our horse racing NAP of the Day at a sweet 7/4. A £10 punt with 888Sport returns £27.50 if he scores on his hurdles bow. New customers who sign up and place such a wager qualify for £40 in bonuses.
Zain Sarinda NB to horse racing NAP in Glasgow Stakes at Hamilton
The big race in Scotland this evening is the Listed 1m 3f Glasgow Stakes (7:47), where Zain Sarinda could be a bit of value. Trained by Tom Clover, this Churchill Colt is the stable’s first-ever runner at this venue. Zain Sarinda’s last couple of horse racing results saw him hit the frame at this level, missing out on victory by narrow margins.
He won his first two starts of the year on the All-Weather, then ran a close-up third in the Blue Riband Trial at Epsom. Zain Sarinda meets re-opposing winner Nahanni off 3lb better terms with just three-quarters of a length between them on that form. Off the back of that, horse racing betting sites made him favourite for the Fairway Stakes and he went down fighting by half-a-length.
Grand Alliance and Ottoman Fleet, who both finished in front of Zain Sarinda in those outings, were second and fourth in a Group 2, so the form reads well in relation to this. With Clover’s modest yard having three winners in the last 10 days, his runner looks overpriced at 7/2 with 888Sport and the NB bet to our horse racing NAP of the Day.
