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
3.30 NEWMARKET – 1PT EACH WAY – BURNT SUGAR @ 12/1 (General – 5 Places)
Burnt Sugar won this race last year from just a 3lbs higher mark and he has clearly been targeted at the race again having swerved Royal Ascot this time. He always runs a massive race at Newmarket and although it will be a tough ask to concede weight to so many runners we know that he has the ability and the attitude to deliver a strong performance in these big field handicaps and he arrives here in peak condition ready to give his all and defend his crown. He may well run into one or two better handicapped but none of his rivals leap of the page in that regard and with the concession of five places he looks a solid bet.
