After 3/1 and 5/2 winners already this week, SportsLens tipsters are back with their latest horse racing NAP of the Day. The selection for Wednesday, 18 May is Hillview who goes in the concluding 3m 1f handicap hurdle at Warwick (5:45). Gary Hanmer’s progressive type looks great value at sweet 6/5 odds.
First or second in each of his last six outings, Hillview seeks a horse racing hat-trick today. Up a further 6lb in the weights from his most recent victory, this six-year-old gelding represents an in-form yard. Hillview is thus our horse racing NAP this Wednesday. Read on for more reasons to back him.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Hillview win?
Following the Hanmer stable at Warwick has been particularly profitable for punters over the last five seasons. Backing his runners blind here on the best UK betting sites in that time would’ve yielded £11.45 off a £1 level stake. Hanmer also boasts an excellent 37 per cent strike rate at this venue over that period.
In Hillview, his handler has a son of Fruits Of Love who thrived in the autumn and picked up right where he left off before a winter break this spring. Third in a Warwick bumper around this time last year, he has since posted improved race results over hurdles.
Winning off a lowly opening mark of 89 at Bangor in September, Hillview has clearly progressed since. Victory at Southwell off 101 on his penultimate start saw him go one better despite a 5lb rise in the weights for finishing second on his return to action at the same venue. Hanmer has now booked champion jockey Brian Hughes for the ride.
Today’s horse racing NAP has Hughes in saddle
After surpassing 200 winners last term, he again means business. Hughes has already ridden nine to victory over hurdles at a 32 per cent strike rate in the new campaign. If punters had backed them all on horse racing betting sites, then they would have £24.20 profit off a £1 level stake. Hughes also had a 43 per cent win ratio at Warwick last term.
With the form of both of his Southwell displays this spring receiving boosts, Hillview just had to be our horse racing NAP on 18 May. A £10 on him with 888Sport returns £22 at his current price if he follows-up on an easy Stratford success last time out. New customers who sign up also qualify for £40 in bonuses with this wager.
