The horse racing NAP of the Day for Wednesday, 20 April with SportsLens experts is Coach Carter. He drops back in trip and down in class for the 2m handicap chase at Perth today (3:00). Gordon Elliott’s runner looks well worth a wager at awesome odds of 11/8.
Placed in a Listed horse racing event at Ayr about three weeks ago, Coach Carter should find these much calmer waters. The six-year-old son of Sholokhov saw the form of his autumn win over fences advertised over Easter too. Coach Carter is thus our horse racing NAP of the Day today. Read even more reasons to back him below…
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Coach Carter win?
All of the best betting sites know that Elliott likes having runners at Perth. He boasts a 30 per cent strike rate at this venue over the last five seasons. Coach Carter remains relatively lightly-raced for his with one win and two seconds from five steeplechase outings to date.
He ran out a 10-length winner over stable companion Gevrey on his bow in this sphere during the Listowel Harvest Festival last autumn. As recent race results reveal, the runner-up won for the second time at Fairyhouse over fences on Easter Sunday. The going over the winter didn’t suit Coach Carter but he shaped far better when back on spring ground last time out.
Elliott raider can go one better at Perth
Only the well-handicapped Beakstown, returned the 9/4 favourite on horse racing betting sites, was a couple of lengths too good at Ayr the last day. That was a Listed race and Coach Carter now drops significantly in grade into Class 3 company. Sean Bowen now takes the ride and often links up with Elliott’s raiders from across the Irish Sea.
Taking all that into account, Coach Carter just had to be our horse racing NAP of the Day for 20 April. A £10 punt on him with 888Sport returns £23.75 if he wins at his current price. New customers can also qualify for £40 in bonuses when signing up and placing a wager to that value.
