Friday’s horse racing Lucky 15 betting tips from York & Wolverhampton.
The best of the Flat action on Friday comes from both York & Wolverhampton where the mix of turf & tapeta racing makes-up our Lucky 15 tip.
Without a doubt, Roger Charlton's juveniles improve for their first run and ACOLYTE (5/2 Ladbrokes), a son of Acclamation, was proof of that fact when winning his maiden at Kempton after finishing third at Newbury first time out. He won that day with any amount in hand and seems sure to improve again, hopefully enough to get involved at the business end here.
When I met with trainer John Gosden the other week I got the feeling that GM HOPKINS (5/2 bet365) may well come-on for his effort in the Silver Cambridgeshire, a race, encouragingly, he won with his head in his chest. Put up a silly 9lbs for that win, he will not be easy to place from now on but, if he does come on for the run, he has an excellent chance this afternoon.
It would be fair to say that Andrew Balding is having a great season, and his representative – RED RUBLES (5/1 Betfred), has sufficient form in the book to suggest he can go close. Both the softer ground and the addition of first time head gear should suit and, although a big price, hopefully he has solid claims.
Two second place finishes could easily suggest that EXCILLY (2/5 William Hill) lacks the resolution to win a race however I have not lost faith. This contest seems a far lesser event than those she has been touched off in and, as such, she represents my best bet of the day.
2.00 – ACOLYTE (5/2 Ladbrokes)
3.00 – GM HOPKINS (5/2 bet365)
4.40 – RED RUBLES (5/1 Betfred)
8.20 – EXCILLY (NAP) (2/5 William Hill)
