Andrew heads the Group 1 Lockinge meeting at Newbury for his two recommended bets/trades on Saturday, May 18th. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites with the lowdown on his latest picks below:


Runners who prepped in handicap company have a poor recent record in the London Gold Cup Handicap, recording just three wins from 70 runners (4.3%) for a loss of £32.00. Last-time out handicap winners were 0-26 in the same period, suggesting that CHANTILLY, the current market leader at around 9-2, could prove vulnerable. Sell at 16 in the Spreadex 50-30-20-10 market. The Charlton yard has a fantastic record in this contest and KING’S GAMBIT (9-2) looks the obvious alternative for fixed odds player.

Recommendation: Oppose CHANTLLY in Newbury 3.00



Those runners ridden patiently off the strong pace enjoyed an advantage in the Spring Cup at Newbury last month where winner METAL MERCHANT (‘midfield’), runner-up GODWINSON (‘slowly away, towards rear’) and fifth-placed BILL SILVERS (‘reared start, midfield ‘) all look flattered. Bill Silvers was unplaced at odds of 5-1 on his next start and both Metal Merchant and Godwinson could be worth opposing this afternoon. At the time of writing, they were heading the betting at 5/2 and 4-1 and the best way to field against them is to buy SP OF WINNER at 8.75 with Spreadex. Fixed odds punters might want to consider TALIS EVOLVERE, third in the Spring Cup despite racing up with the pace.

Recommendation: Buy SP OF WINNER in Newbury 4.45
