Saturdays are made for football and horse racing and this one is no exception, with some cracking football in-store and Champions Day at Ascot.
Here at Odds Manager, we’ve scoped out the form for the Ascot card and put together our top Odds Picks, including a mega 33/1 selection.
All the Ascot action is live on ITV Racing so kick back, relax, and hopefully cheer home a winner or two.
Our Top Pick – Magical (15:40) to Win – 2/1 at Unibet
Magical by name, Magical by nature.
If it hadn’t been for that pesky Enable she’d have bagged more Group 1s than she has.
She won this race last year and a repeat performance looks to be on the cards in what looks a weaker renewal.
Ryan Moore takes the ride and we’re excited to scope out Twitter post-race to see people moaning about him not smiling.
Our Extra Pick – Dream of Dreams (13:55) to Win – 5/2 at Betfair
Run over the flying 6f, this will be more frenzied than Celtic v Rangers kicking-off an hour earlier.
Dream of Dreams smoked them in the Betfair Sprint Cup last time out and anywhere close to that form here will see the rest chasing shadows.
Our Long Shot – Graignes (16:15) Each-Way – 33/1 at Coral
A juicy price for our long shot but we think Graignes is over-priced on the best of his form.
He’s not set the world alight in his four runs for his new yard, but is on a dangerous looking mark for his handicap debut here.
If he can bounce back to his French form he could run a huge race and, at these odds, that’s a chance we’re willing to take – fingers crossed!
