The horse racing NAP of the Day on Saturday, 19 February, and a big day for the sport with SportsLens tipsters is Corach Rambler. This Scottish raiders comes down to Ascot for the 3m Grade 2 Reynoldstown Novices Chase (1:50). Lucinda Russell’s runner is one of the best horse racing tips today at terrific 100/30 odds, according to our experts.
Corach Rambler, an eight-year-old son of much missed jumps horse racing sire Jeremy, won two of his four starts over fences. He also handles testing conditions and scored at Cheltenham on his penultimate outing. Given that he travels south from Russell’s Perthshire base well, he rates the horse racing NAP of the Day today. Learn all about him below as our experts explain other reasons to back their Bet of the Day.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Corach Rambler win?
A winner on soft and heavy ground over hurdles at double figure prices with top betting sites last season, Corach Rambler has built on that since going novice chasing. He found the trip too sharp at Perth when third on his debut over fences, but that race has thrown up plenty of subsequent winners.
When stepped back up in distance at Aintree, Corach Rambler won well. He then followed-up when backed into Cheltenham odds of 2/1 favourite at the International Meeting. Connections then stepped Corach Rambler up in trip and out of novice company into an open handicap but that was too much too soon.
To his credit, he stayed on from a very unpromising position to finish fourth in the Classic Chase at Warwick. Burdened by top weight, Corach Rambler clearly hung out to his right which didn’t help his cause. However, the way he finished off the race means he shaped better than the bare race results suggests and he now runs right-handed.
Now back against novices and getting 3lb from main market rival Does He Know, who has no form on testing surfaces, Corach Rambler may find this easier. He does have a talented bunch against him, but this horse is still open to further progress after just seven starts under Rules. A £10 punt on Corach Rambler returns £43.33 at his current price. That wager qualifies new 888Sport customers for £45 in bonuses over the next fortnight so see below for details.
