15:35 Redcar – Swift Emperor (BEST ODDS 7/1 with Ladbrokes)
I’ve gone for a slightly bigger priced NAP than I usually would this bank holiday Monday and it definitely looks worth a bet, even if you go each-way with the ten runners. Swift Emperor’s fourth placed finish at 20/1 is a really nice piece of form and he was within two lengths of winning last time out as well. There are no question marks over the ground as this horse as won twice in the six times that he has run on good to firm ground. After being favourite last time out, I’m surprised that he’s available at such a big price. One of the joint favourites has to make a step up in class whereas the other hasn’t finished better than ninth in his last three runs. I’m happy with the value provided here.
A £20 total stake returns £160 with Ladbrokes.
