Wetherby Racecourse Results – 28 May 2015


The weather might have been cool and breezy, but the going was good (good to firm in places) on much of Wetherby’s course on Thursday (28 May). Below are the seven UK horse racing results and payouts from Wetherby.

Starting in the early evening, the 17:40 Mares Novices Hurdle saw a 1/4 win for favourite Promanco. Rathlin Rose then won as 4/7 favourite in the 18:10 Novices Chase. A third win followed for the favourites, with 1/2 Ballykan claiming the 18:45 Novices Hurdle.

Trackside bookies at last caught a break when Everylasting won the 19:20 Handicap Chase at 5/1. Politeness then showed no mercy by winning the 19:55 Handicap Hurdle at 8/1.

Drom proved strong enough at 9/4 to win ahead of 2/1 favourite Opera Og in the 20:45 Open Hunters Chase. Craigdancer became the biggest long-shot of the day by winning the 20:55 at 16/1 in front of 3/1 favourite Miss MacNamara.

Newmarket Horse Racing Naps – 30 May 2015


Newmarket will be the focus for many horse racing fans this Saturday afternoon (30 May). Thousands in prize money has been generated for this seven-race meeting that will feature leading jockeys like Frankie Dettori, Richard Hughes, and Kieren Fox.

For the £37,000 14:45 Fairway Stakes, we look to the free horse racing naps from Sky Sports. Sky reckons that Peacock is the worthy favourite at 2/1, having won twice in six races. Nafaqa is another fine prospect at 3/1, having also won twice in its past six races.

Coming straight after is the £45,000 15:20 Handicap, featuring ten runners. Four-year-old Penhill is the current favourite at 11/4, based on three wins from seven. Elhaame is second-favourite at 11/2, but has not been quite so impressive in form. The five-year-old has one win in seven. Watersmeet has won three from four, and looks like incredible value at 6/1.

Chester Horse Racing Speed Ratings – 30 May 2015


The going is expected to be good to firm at Chester Racecourse today (Saturday 30 May). Conditions will allow for quick horses to thrive on the fine surface. Ahead of the seven races, the Racing Post has unveiled its latest horse racing speed ratings free.

A sizeable £45,000 prize fund has been stumped up for the 15:00 Handicap, which is the third race of the afternoon. Baraweez should be fancies with a 108 rating, but four races without even a third-place finish is a drawback. In contrast, the 106-rated Newstead Abbey won its last race.

Another potentially rewarding race is the 16:10 Handicap and its £21,000 prize fund. Eleven runners aged four and above are set to enter. From those runners, Dalgig has a 98 rating. Although winning twice in six races, the 88-rated Thunder Pass has won two from its last four and is in better form.
