In this column, JP aims to identify a horse whose odds are on offer at bigger than their ‘real’ chance of winning a particular race, with the aim of being in profit over the bookmakers at the end of the season. Follow our Saturday Steamer selection here every Saturday and fingers crossed for some big priced winners! It’s recommended that a bookmaker offering BOG (Best Odds Guaranteed) is used. No each way here…we’ll be brave and go for the win using 2pts to keep in line with our other tips.
TODAY’S SATURDAY STEAMER
4.00 ASCOT – 2PTS WIN – WOVEN @ 20/1 (General) BOG
I have tipped up Woven a couple of times already this season and I am certain that he will win a race soon. He was seen to better effect on his penultimate start at Newcastle when given a positive ride from the front before being reeled in by a useful type late on. He was given a perplexing ride by Jamie Spencer last time out, right out the back and never put in the race. There is no guarantee that today will see an improved performance but with a different jockey onboard that will be keen to make an impression on the day there has to be every chance of a more positive ride and at a big price in a very winnable race he is worth a small bet AGAIN!
