This Tuesday, 30 August, the horse racing NAP of the Day, according to SportsLens experts, is Star Of Valour. He makes his bow over obstacles in the extended 2m 2f maiden hurdle at Newton Abbot this evening (4:30). Joe Tizzard’s runner looks well worth a wager at a terrific 100/30 price here.
A four-time winner under horse racing Rules on the Flat and All-Weather, Star Of Valour is a fascinating recruit to hurdles. This seven-year-old Invincible Spirit gelding also ran well in defeat at Salisbury last time out. He thus rates our horse racing NAP of the Day today and this is why to back him…
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Star Of Valour win?
Since taking over the reins from father Colin, the stable under Tizzard junior has a phenomenal 43 per cent strike rate with its Newton Abbot runners. Going into today, if punters had backed those blind on horse racing betting sites, they would have a sweet £16.29 profit off a £1 level stake.
While Star Of Valour only has a modest Flat turf rating of 65, his yard is far better known for its exploits in the National Hunt code. Since stepping up in trip beyond a mile this summer, he has placed on four of his five starts. Earlier this month at Windsor races on his penultimate start, Star Of Valour stayed on and got up for second in the final strides.
He then filled the same spot last time out. Although no match for a ready seven-length winner in Thanks Monica, who has since bolted up by at Leicester races by an even greater margin, Star Of Valour kept on nicely into second. He pulled almost five lengths clear of Ludlow hurdles winner Fight For It, rated 106 in that sphere, back in third.
Horse racing NAP of the Day a most interesting recruit to hurdles
These recent race results give Star Of Valour every chance of staying an extended two-and-a-quarter miles now tackling hurdles for the first time. Now with Brendan Powell Jr aboard and boasting a 31 per cent win ratio with his Newton Abbot mounts this season, everything looks in place for a big run.
