Horse Racing Tips: Mishriff backed by top two to topple Baaeed

AUG 17th

The Ebor Festival is finally here and with it comes a gluttony of high class racing for fans, pundits and tipsters alike to sink their teeth into. As can be expected, here at Horseracing.Net the majority of the army of experts that choose their daily best bets are headed to the Knavesmire, with some interesting selections on the card. We don't only have tips for the big meeting of the day though, with the two most tipped selections actually coming from Worcester and Kempton respectively! Here we zone in on a few of the most eye-catching and popular picks...

Mishriff is the best bet of the 1-2 in our Naps table today...

In something of a rarity this season, and indeed in any season of this competition, the top two in the Naps table at the moment are siding with the same horse in the same race! Both Expert Eye, the runaway leader, and Garry Owen are siding with Mishriff to upset the best rated horse in the world (and 1/2 favourite) Baaeed in the Juddmonte International. Owen has only recently emerged as the second placed contestant after a stunning run of four winners from his last five best bet selections at odds ranging between 4/6 and 9/2. Expert Eye is not in as sensational form with his best bet selections but with his stellar start to the season still holds a big lead atop the table, although who knows what the standings will look like by the end of Ebor week with many no doubt taking wild swings at huge prices in big handicaps.

Mishriff's claims for this race are obvious, after putting in a career best in the contest twelve months ago to storm to a six length success, and Baaeed certainly faces his toughest test since last year's Champion Stakes at Ascot. Our in house tipster is siding with the Gosden defending champion and you can read his case here if you want to be with the two top pundits on our Naps table in the feature race of the day.

The biggest priced Nap of the day comes in at 40/1 from local tipster The Duke of the Yorkshire Post as he is siding with Morando to win the Stayers Handicap. Three horses share the honour of being the most popular pick in the naps table, with favourite Dakota Gold in the York opener joined by another in the same race at over double the price, Ghathanfar. Either of these two runners bagging the prize could see a shake up in the middle of the naps table and have a few contestants dreaming of flying up the leaderboard this Ebor week.

The other selection Napped three times is Aikhal in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at 15:00 on the Knavesmire. Aidan O'Brien's runner has been steadily supported since the day of the race market formed and can be expected to shorten more as racing fans wake up and see how popular he is with tipsters across the country. Our man Billy Grimshaw penned a preview for the race earlier this week and sided with the Ballydoyle raider, and you can read a more in-depth case for the son of Galileo here

In the introduction we mentioned a couple of horses away from the Ebor Festival action were actually the most popular of the day in terms of tips, and these two are Chess Player in the 17:00 at Worcester at current odds of 5/4 and the bigger priced Storyinthesand at Kempton in the 17:40, best priced 2/1. Both horses have ten tips, making them the only selections of the day with double figure tips, and a strong case can be made for both. Hopefully a profitable day at York can be followed by more winnings when these two sail in!
