The Hillhouse Quarry Supporting the Ayrshire Hospice Handicap Class 5 race is one of the best races of the day, and with 17 runners, it may look, on the outside, as though picking a winner is going to be next to near impossible – but follow our tips below, and you’ll see that there’s actually quite a lot of decent value to be found here.
One of our favourite picks – outsider wise – looks to be Hurricane Hollow, who’s trained by T D Barron, and ridden by Rachel Richardson.
While the horse’s form is a little less than desirable, she put on a tremendous performance a few months’ back at Goodwood Races, and if she can repeat that performance, she stands a great chance of making the top three. Plus, at 10/1, there’s great value for both a win, and a place bet, as well.
Another name to look out for is London Glory, who’s trained by D Thompson, and ridden by none other than J Flanning. With such a highly-experienced trained and jockey, the horse stands an amazing chance of putting on a stellar performance, and while the bookies are pricing her at just 6/1 (she’s the clear favourite for the race), win-bet-wise, there’s good value here.
Other than that, there’s not too much to get excited about; perhaps another one worth looking at, is Braes of Lochlash, who comes from the J S Goldie stables. Ridden by J P Sullivan, this Irish-horse has failed to win a single race she’s competed in – but does have an impressive 225224 form – showcasing she’s more than capable of finishing in the top two.
Whether or not she can break the losing-run she’s currently on, and go on to actually win a race remains to be seen – but at odds of 8/1, we really like the look of her, for an each-way bet, and the price is likely to drift out as punters place bets on the two aforementioned horses – so it could be a good idea to wait before placing a bet on her, or, at the very least, ensure you’re betting with a bookmaker who offers best odds guaranteed.
Overall, it’s a tough race to pick, and we may well see a surprise result – but of the three we’ve listed, Hurricane Hollow looks to be the best shout, so get your bets on, and good luck!
