Best bet for the horse racing Tuesday 18th May
I mentioned on Monday that I would probably have a bet on Tuesday and I have.
Best bet for the horse racing at Wolverhampton
The race I am playing in on Tuesday is the 1m½f Wolverhampton Holiday Inn Handicap at 4.10. I tipped Silent Film on his second start when he won over a mile at Lingfield in February. Second last time at Epsom, running on over the extended mile there carrying a penalty making it a fair effort on my eyes. I half expected to see the gelding taking a step-up in trip but the Godolphin have chosen to keep him at a mile for now on his handicap debut. An opening mark of 89 doesn’t look harsh, though the same could be said for a few here like Ilza'eem and Great King also making handicap debuts, but I am hopeful the selection has a bit more to come yet. Yard has a near 32% strike-rate here so you have to take notice when they send just one up for a meeting which is the case with this son of New Approach. At 7-1 he is worth a punt in an open looking affair.
