Following a 3/1 winner yesterday, SportsLens experts have another horse racing NAP of the Day for Tuesday, 17 May in Sirobbie. He goes in the 3m 1f handicap hurdle (7:47) at Huntingdon this evening. David Bridgwater’s charge appeals as the best value Bet of the Day at nifty 9/4 odds.
Now 7lb below his last winning mark, Sirobbie looks well-handicapped in horse racing terms. He has also run well in defeat off his current rating when placed twice last month. This eight-year-old Arakan gelding thus rates our horse racing NAP this Tuesday and here are more reasons to back him…
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Sirobbie win?
Following Bridgwater’s Huntingdon runners over the last five seasons would see punters in front. Backing the stable blind here in that time on top betting sites would’ve yielded £1.50 profit off a £1 level stake. The runner-up from Sirobbie’s Uttoxeter victory in October 2020, West To The Bridge, came out and won four times last season.
That means the form stacks up. Sirobbie has since slipped down the weights. He ran a respectable fourth when beaten less than a couple of lengths at Market Rasen in March. Sirobbie meets the re-opposing third Del Duque off 6lb better terms when taking Lily Pinchin’s 5lb claim into account. With less than a length between them on that horse racing result, it gives him every chance of turning the tables.
Sirobbie is also 2lb better off with Taunton conqueror Flashing Glance. Again, in handicapping terms, with little more than a length between them on that form, he has a big shout of reversing places. For evidence of that, look no further than Sirobbie’s fine third at Haydock last time out.
Today’s horse racing NAP brings strong Haydock form to table
He was just a couple of lengths behind the in-form An Tailliur that day. The winner had previously chased home subsequent dual Grade 1 winning mare Marie’s Rock and landed three previous completed starts. Imphal split the pair after scoring on four of his eight previous outings. There has also been overnight support on horse racing betting sites for Sirobbie.
Taking all that into account, he just had to be the horse racing NAP today. A repeat of his last effort off an unchanged mark now dropping down in class should be enough to see him win. Back Sirobbie with 888Sport where a £10 punt at his current price returns £32.50 if he wins and new customers qualify for £40 in bonuses.
