The horse racing NAP of the Day this Friday, 19 November, according to SportsLens experts, is Iceburgh Bay. He makes his bow for trainer Philip Hobbs in division II of the extended 2m 3f maiden hurdle at Chepstow (2:55). This five-year-old Rules debutant appeals as the best value Bet of the Day at odds of 4/1.
Iceburgh Bay is a Sageburg gelding who improved on his first start between the flags when winning his second Irish Point. He was then bought out of the Emerald Isle and sent to the Hobbs stable. Some of the collateral form looks like it’s working out well, so IceBurgh Bay rates our NAP of the Day today. Check out other reasons to back him below as that fab 4/1 price makes the top Bet of the Day on 19 November:
Why will NAP of the Day Iceburgh Bay win?
Hobbs has a healthy 20 per cent win rate with his runners at Chepstow, so clearly targets the Welsh track. That’s just where Iceburgh Bay comes in. Sean Thomas Doyle trained him for those Irish point-to-points, coming fourth on debut at Tattersalls Farm. Iceburgh Bay improved past the third home, Goleirihem, when winning at Ballingarry.
Gekkota, who was fifth that last day, has since filled the same spot behind Minella Crooner. That one is a dual bumper winner with a big future over hurdles, based on the way he defied a penalty to make it 2-2 in Irish National Hunt Flat races at Punchestown last weekend. Minella Crooner also previously beat Iceburgh Bay’s Tattersalls Farm conqueror House Of Stories by 20 lengths in a Point at Cork.
The collateral form really does look quite strong, then. It also looks significant that Iceburgh Bay starts off over almost 2m 4f rather than the standard 2m maiden. Hobbs knows there is stamina in his pedigree with the dam being by Beneficial. Iceburgh Bay is a half-brother to the useful Rouge Vif and Broomfield Burg, a fellow UK recruit from the Irish pointing field.
With the Hobbs team sending out six winners in the last 10 days, the yard is clearly in-form. Iceburgh Bay looks the value play for a successful start under Rules, then. A £25 punt on him returns £125 at his current odds. Should Iceburgh Bay fail to make a winning UK debut, then QuinnBet refunds the stake as a free bet.
