Today’s Racing NAP
15:40 Uttoxeter– Midnight Cowboy (BEST ODDS 5/1 with Bet Victor)
Midnight Cowboy only has five previous chase races to his name, but has taken to jumping over fences well because he has won three of these races. He’s won at a distance of some twenty furlongs before, so his stamina shouldn’t be an issue. His trainer has a good record in the last 14 days and half of his horses that ran in this time have placed. For that reason, I would suggest backing this horse each-way. If he were to place instead of win, at least you’d get at least your stake back. There is no rain forecast for Saturday or Sunday, so I reckon that the ground will be closer to good than soft by the time the race goes off. This will help Midnight Cowboy, who I think is overpriced considering his experience in chasing thus far.
