This Sunday, 30 October, the horse racing NAP of the Day, according to SportsLens experts, is Good Risk At All. He goes in the 2m 4f handicap hurdle at Carlisle (3:05). Next Best and a bit of each way value, meanwhile, is Minella Drama in the Listed 2m 4f Colin Parker Memorial Intermediate Chase (2:30).
Both of our horse racing tipsters’ Sunday selections should handle the Cumbrian track. Get the lowdown on both of these bets below:
- 2:30 Carlisle – MINELLA DRAMA (NB EW) @ 13/2 with 888Sport
- 3:05 Carlisle – GOOD RISK AT ALL (NAP) @ 2/1 with 888Sport
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Good Risk At All win?
Sam Thomas is turning into a trainer to follow, so GOOD RISK AT ALL looks well worth a wager now back in handicap company on his reappearance. A very smart bumper performer two seasons ago, this six-year-old No Risk At All gelding put in his best display over hurdles at Ascot races and this distance on his penultimate start.
The nine-length runner-up went on to finish a fine sixth in the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival at odds of 40/1. They pulled miles clear of the remainder, giving the form and horse racing result a solid look. Good Risk At All was also far from disgraced when pitched right in at the deep end.
Although he was only sixth in a Grade 1 at Aintree, he was behind horses that had all contested top class events before. Good Risk At All goes back handicapping off 10lb higher than his Ascot romp. All of the top betting sites in the UK clearly fear that hike in the weights won’t stop him resuming winning ways.
With Thomas a big winner on Saturday and boasting a 33 per cent strike rate with his rare Carlisle runners, Good Risk At All just had to be our horse racing NAP of the Day for 30 October. A £10 punt on him with 888Sport returns £30 if he does land the spoils here. New customers who back Good Risk At All qualify for £40 in bonuses if placing such a wager.
Minella Drama overlooked & overpriced for Colin Parker
Donald McCain seeks his 100th winner at Carlisle today, and MINELLA DRAMA could upset a few and give it to him. This seven-year-old son of Flemensfirth goes well fresh and was an unlucky loser at this venue last season. Since tackling fences, Minella Drama has jumped to his right. That’s no problem at this track.
After landing his bow in this sphere at Uttoxeter races, he only found War Lord a short-head too good here. The narrow winner went on to finish runner-up in two Grade 1s, so the form doesn’t look too shabby. When stepped up to this trip at Haydock, Minella Drama bolted up in the Grade 2 Altcar Novices’ Chase in January.
The sharp track and tight turns of Kempton then didn’t suit him but he shaped much better last time out. Only Do Your Job ran out too good for Minella Drama at Ayr. It seems pretty silly that horse racing betting sites make a couple of runners who have never jumped fences in public prominent in the market here.
What that does is underline the value of Minella Drama under reigning champion jumps jockey Brian Hughes. They are NB to our horse racing NAP of the Day in Good Risk At All and some each way value. Punters who put £10 (£20 staked in total) on with 888Sport get over £100 back if Minella Drama wins. It’s 13/8 for second place.
