Freebets.com racing expert Alan Kelly proved he has a keen eye for value when his Newbury tip was backed down to single figure odds with bookmakers this morning.
Alan recommended getting on John Quinn’s juvenile Harrys Dancer at 14/1 for the Weatherbys Super Sprint in his article yesterday and odds for the impressive Thirsk winner tumbled down to 8/1 with layers this morning.
Jimmy Quinn will be aboard Harry’s Dancer who has only had two starts in her career, winning her debut at Thirsk in May before stepping up in class when taking on the best of her sex in the Group2 Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot last month. She was picked out of 25 entries expected to go down to the start for the £250,000 speed test at 3.50 Newbury and punters have shown their support for the daughter of Kodiac in preference to the early market leader Realtra. Richard Fahey’s filly is one of the most experienced runners in the field but has gradually drifted in the market and is available at 13/2 in places.
Taking over as pre-race favourite is top weight Tiggy Wiggy, trained by Richard Hannon with Richard Hughes up top. Another Kodiac filly, she has won three of her five career starts and has been backed from 5/1 to as low as 10/3 in places, the speedster is available at 4/1 with bet365 and one or two others. bet365 is also top price 8/1 Harrys Dancer and you can read about bet365 £200 welcome bonus here.
Hannon has taken eight runners to Newbury with five going for the big sprint prize. Joining Tiggy Wiggy are Be Bold and Parsley who could go close for jockeys Steve Drowne and Nieran O’Neill respectively and outsiders Flyball (Chris Caitlan) and L’Etacq Jimmy Fortune).
