This Saturday, 10 September, the horse racing NAP of the Day, according to SportsLens experts, is Homeless Songs. Both she and our tipsters’ Next Best bet, Boundless Ocean, run on the opening day of Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown.
Representing two stalwarts of the Irish horse racing training ranks, here are all the details of why you should back our experts’ Saturday selections:
- 4:20 Leopardstown – BOUNDLESS OCEAN (NB) @ 5/2 with 888Sport
- 4:55 Leopardstown – HOMELESS SONGS (NAP) @ 5/4 with 888Sport
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Homeless Songs win?
Each of the last seven winners of the 1m Group 1 Matron Stakes (4:55) has been a three-year-old filly. The standout of her generation this year very much looks like HOMELESS SONGS. Trained by Dermot Weld for Moyglare Stud, this daughter of Frankel has been saved for this and the best betting sites know it only too well.
An impressive winner of the Irish 1000 Guineas on her last start, Homeless Songs is also 2-3 from at Leopardstown. The form of her victory in an official trial for that Classic on reappearance has received plenty of boosts since. Each of the runner-up, fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth home have subsequently won a Listed or Group race.
Shrewd and in-form trainer has laid horse racing NAP of the Day out for this
Homeless Songs stormed 5 1/2 lengths clear of the Epsom Oaks heroine Tuesday when last in action. Hers is the strongest set of horse racing results, performance and form on offer in this line-up. With Homeless Songs 9lb clear of main market rival Saffron Beach – who has had a far busier campaign, on adjusted ratings – she has a favourite’s chance.
The Weld stable has hit form at just the right time as well, bringing a 40 per cent strike rate into Irish Champions Weekend over the last fortnight. Homeless Songs is thus a strong fancy and our horse racing NAP of the Day for 10 September. A £10 punt on her with 888Sport returns £22.50 if she can follow-up after a summer break of 111 days under Chris Hayes.
Course specialist Boundless Ocean NB in Boomerang Mile test
Earlier on the Leopardstown card, Jim Bolger saddles his homebred BOUNDLESS OCEAN in the Group 2 Clipper Logistics Boomerang Mile (4:20). A three-year-old Teofilo colt with course form figures of 1211 this season, he seeks a hat-trick following victories in the Meld and Desmond Stakes.
Boundless Ocean raced prominently in both of those Group 3 contests under fine rides from stable jockey Kevin Manning. The form of the Meld Stakes has since been advertised by the fifth home, Trevaunance, who has since landed a couple of three-year-old fillies’ races at Deauville. All of the top horse racing betting sites also know that third from the Desmond Stakes, Charterhouse, came out and won a Listed event.
Race terms favour Bolger’s charge in Irish Champions Weekend bid
That adds substance to Boundless Ocean’s form. He has become a course specialist at Leopardstown this year, so punters shouldn’t underestimate that. Bolger had a winner at Cork in midweek too. Boundless Ocean receives 5lb weight for age from main market rival and ratings too Jadoomi too, so comes out 2lb and upwards clear of the field on adjusted figures.
Taking all that into account, he looks the Next Best bet on the card behind our horse racing NAP of the Day, Homeless Songs. A £10 wager on Boundless Ocean with 888Sport returns £35 if he can complete his hat-trick here. New customers who join and place such a bet qualify for £40 in bonuses with more info below…
