On Wednesday, 27 April, the horse racing NAP of the Day for SportsLens experts is Wordsworth. He runs in the 2m Group 3 Sagaro Stakes at Ascot today (3:35). This Aidan O’Brien trained Irish raider looks the best value Bet of the Day at a terrific 100/30 price.
Second in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot last year, Wordsworth then twice placed behind St Leger hero Hurricane Lane in Group 1 races. That is some of the strongest form on offer. He thus rates the horse racing NAP of the Day for 27 April. Read more reasons to back Wordsworth today.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Wordsworth win?
O’Brien needs two more victories to have trained 100 horse racing winners on the Flat at Ascot. In Wordsworth, he has a son of the late Galileo who kept on into third in the Irish Derby and chased home the same rival in the Grand Prix de Paris. These are top three-year-old races in the Emerald Isle and France.
Wordsworth has always shaped like a stayer and is a full brother to 2018 St Leger scorer Kew Gardens. His sibling famously lowered the colours of Stradivarius over course and distance in the 2019 Long Distance Cup too. Those past horse racing results posted by a close relative bode well for Wordsworth.
Race-fit and always shaping like a stayer
He made a winning reappearance over an extended 1m 5f at Gowran Park needing every yard of the trip to get up and touch off Sunchart by a head. Ballydoyle stable Ryan Moore comes over to take the ride too, so that won’t be lost on top betting sites in the UK. Wordsworth, who only found Kemari too good on his sole start here, had top juvenile hurdler Pied Piper in-behind him.
With O’Brien on a 32 per cent strike rate in the last 14 days, plenty points to a big run. The track, trip and ground should also suit Wordsworth. Backing our horse racing NAP of the Day with 888Sport at his current price returns £43.33 if he wins and punters bet a tenner. New customers also qualify for a £40 in bonuses with such a wager.
