Today’s Horse Racing Odds: Tuesday 12th April

UK and Irish racing fans have four meetings to look forward to on Tuesday, with action from Newmarket, Ayr, Wolverhampton and Dundalk.

The standout card is at Newmarket, where they host the annual three-day Craven Meeting. It is often a showcase for the rest of the flat season and runs until Thursday.

Tuesday’s seven-race card at HQ starts at 13:15 before finishing at 16:45 and is highlighted by the Grade 3 pair of the Earl of Sefton Stakes and Nell Gwyn Stakes at 15:00 and 15:35, respectively.

Betfred are also offering their Extra Place Race promotion on both the 13:50 and closer. In the former, connections will hope 11/2 Popmaster can be top of the charts again after wins at Ascot and Doncaster last year, while at 16:45, Educator is 2/1 to return with a win after signing off his two-year-old campaign last September with a Haydock success.

The first card of the day is the sole jumps affair from Ayr, where they have seven races running from 13:00 to 16:20.

2000 Guineas Betting Odds

Betfred’s Extra Place Race is available on the 14:05 but there is something additional on the 15:50, which sees them pay out four places as part of the Super Extra Place Race offer.

Donald Whillans’ Shoeshine Boy is 9/2 to finally score after a run of four straight second places, while there is similar sentiment surrounding Lucinda Russell’s 11/4 Your Place, the mare herself having been second on her last two outings.

Into the evening with all-weather cards on either side of the Irish Sea. In the UK, Wolverhampton calls for seven contests between 17:05 and 20:15, with the Extra Place available on the 19:45.

However, Betfred also offer their Free Bet if 2nd promotion on both the 18:15 and closer. In the first of those, 5/2 Intervention is sure to receive interest following his win here last week, while in the final race, a look at 7/2 Plumette makes sense having won here two starts ago and been a decent third last time out.

Finally, the Irish action at Dundalk, where their seven races run from 17:30 to 20:30 and the Extra Place is available on the 18:00, 20:00 and the closer.

In the last contest of the night, a drop back in distance may well suit 11/2 Dubirango. The three-year-old won here four starts ago and placed in his last two outings, also at this venue.
