Best bet for the horse racing Monday 29th April 2024

It's unusual for me to have a bet on a Monday, often pretty average stuff to start the week, but there is one running out in Ireland Monday evening that I have backed. 

Best bet for the horse racing Naas

The race of interest to me is the Listed 5f Anglesey Lodge Equine Hospital Woodlands Stakes at 6.20. Aesops Fables spent the second half of 2024 running in top Sprints across the globe and was third in the 5f G.1 Prix de l'Abbaye and the 5f G.1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint before disappointing in the 6f G.1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint but can be forgiven that after a very busy schedule. The son of No Nay Never gets his four-year-old campaign underway here and to be honest I was surprised to see 9-4 available Sunday evening as I though he might be shorter so have taken some of that overnight. Ryan Moore rides, he has four rides on the card for 'the lads' and boss Aidan O'Brien all with chances as you would expect and I wouldn't put you off a Yankee on the four. I fancy this colt strongly to get a well-deserved victory, not actually won since he was two, with this stiff five-furlongs and drop into far calmer waters all in his favour. Moss Tucker has to give him 3lb under race conditions which is another plus whilst is he 8lb better off with Ocean Quest in this than when the filly beat him in a Listed heat at Navan last April. 

Be lucky
