Owen’s Outsiders! 33/1, 25/1 and 16/1 Selections (17th July)

Chepstow Racecourse

It was another successful day for the Outsider’s series on Wednesday, as Harold Shand claimed victory at a tipped priced of 33/1! Backed off the boards during the day, he went off 9/1 and came with a strong late surge under the De Sousa drive to land the spoils.

I’m hoping for another big day on Friday to continue recent successes, which included a 66/1 place and 40/1 winner last week! For all our horse racing tips, check on site now, but head below for my Friday outsiders!

All runners are best priced and are correct as of 6:30pm on Thursday.


12:45 Chepstow – Garson (33/1)

Sent off 8/1 for his debut at Kempton in June, better was clearly expected of David Evans’ Garson on that occasion. He ran well to a point, travelling well into the straight before finding little for pressure in the final furlong. He should have learnt plenty from that experience over seven furlongs and dropping to six furlongs for today’s contest will suit on that evidence.

He’s certainly got a pedigree to do better with further experience and given that early favourite is Speedful, a horse he encountered on debut who only went by in the closing stages of that seven-furlong contest; there can be hope he’d reverse the placings at this shorter distance.


3.10 Beverley – King’s Pavilion (25/1)

His form this season has been disappointing, but King’s Pavillion has been plying his trade at a higher level and the last time he dropped into Class 4 company, he was a course winner over the mile twelve months ago off a pound higher. Not beaten far in a Class 2 event as recently as October last year, he was last seen over seven furlongs winning at Ascot off a two-pound higher mark weeks prior.

Dropped to both this level and trip, off a rating that is clearly dangerous, he looks very overpriced on paper.


1.00 Limerick – Dress Kode (16/1)

Making her debut over five furlongs at Naas last month, Dress Kode shaped with plenty of promise, keeping on well in the closing stages and suggesting a step up in distance would certainly help matters. She did too much too soon at Roscommon subsequently on heavy ground, leading at a very strong pace before being unable to go with the leaders in the final two furlongs.

She drops back to the extended six furlongs today, which is a big positive based on that run, as is a return to better ground for Ger Lyons filly. She remains of interest and deserves another go, as this trip and conditions combination should be optimum for her based on what we’ve seen thus far.
