Professional horse racing tipster Andrew Mount turns his attention to Saturday’s Spreadex markets to find the best value spread betting and fixed odds opportunities.
Spreadex offers both normal fixed odds betting plus spread betting on horse racing. There are some key differences between this form of gambling and placing regular fixed odds bets. Get the calls right and punters could win big, but the potential to lose money can be much higher. Intrigued? Then check out this how to spread bet on horse racing guide:
Andrew has two recommended bets trades at Ayr’s Scottish National meeting on Saturday, April 2nd, as well as a horse to oppose on the all-weather at Lingfield. Follow his tips on horse racing betting sites throughout the year.
BASS ROCK was only fifth when the 6-4 favourite at Carlisle last time but he raced on the inside rail on a day it was a big advantage to challenge wide on the better ground. His full record for Sandy Thomson now reads 22321135 (2-8) and it will be disappointing if he doesn’t go close at least. Buy at 26 in the Spreadex 50-25-10 market or back at 13-8 in the fixed odds betting.
Recommendation: Back BASS ROCK in Ayr 4.20
AYR SPOTLIGHT VERDICT
BASS ROCK (see above) is the Racing Post Spotlight selection for Ayr’s 4.10 and I also find myself agreeing with my former colleagues’ verdicts for several other races at this meeting. The consistent SEBASTOPOL appreciated the better ground when scoring at Kempton last time and can follow up in the opener (1.15), DUSART remains open to plenty of improvement as a chaser and can improve on his Cheltenham festival fifth by landing the 1.50 and ONEMOREFORTHEROAD, tactically versatile and at home on good ground, should be thereabouts in the Scottish Champion Hurdle (2.25). DO YOUR JOB has proved incredibly consistent since joining the Michael Scudamore yard – recording form figures of 21124221F221 (4-12) – and it will be disappointing if he doesn’t pick up at least 10 points in the 3.00. Ben Hutton has gone for glory with 25-1 shot BLAME THE GAME in the finale (4.45) but by this point I’d hope to have the spread of 60-64 covered.
Recommendation: Buy RACING POST SPOTLIGHT verdict at Ayr
INDURO DE FONTAINE was only beaten by a neck into second place over a shorter trip here last time but got first run on the winner in a slowly-run contest and, if anything, probably should have done better. He might still find his maiden status intact after today’s race. Trainer Louise Allan’s losing streak goes back 479 days (albeit she’s had just 25 runners in that time) and progeny of Induro De Fontaine’s sire, Manduro, usually underperform on the all-weather, winning just 51 of their 692 starts (7.4%) for a huge loss of £377.82 to a £1 level stake at SP (expected number of winners = 66.36). Sell in the Spreadex 50-25-10 race market. Fixed odds punters might want to consider HICONIC.
Recommendation: Oppose INDURO DE FONTAINE in Lingfield 4.50
