A look at Thursday’s picks with BetVictor’s racing ambassador Sam Boswell.
Sam’s brings us a pick from Thurles and also visits some pre-Cheltenham markets with Rachel Blackmore catching the eye.
Eklat De Rire to win 11/8
“Eklat De Rire scored on his point to point debut. He then joined the De Bromhead yard and was a good second at Punchestown to Foxy Jacks who had the benefit of more experience. The six-year-old goes up in trip today and can give Rachel Blackmore the BetVictor ambassador a brilliant chance of a winner here at Thurles.”
BetVictor Cheltenham Festival Racing Specials
“With attention turning towards Cheltenham and today’s racing being fairly uninspiring, I decided to revisit our special markets to see if we can find you some value for next week. The first that catches the eye is Gordon Elliott to have four or more winners at 6/4. Two of the last three years Elliott has exceeded this.
“If you have missed the fancy ante-post prices on his superstars like Envoi Allen, this bet could be one to give you some interest for the week. His strengths in the handicaps is another massive plus point for anyone taking the 6/4 about him scoring four or more winners.
“The other bet that stands out is Rachael Blackmore to have three or more winners at 5/1. She had two winners last year and heads into the Festival with a sensational book of rides.”
