Having developed an interest in racing whilst in college some years ago, James has worked in many areas of the industry, including a stint hiding his face on radio! From 2008 until 2017, he ran a successful tipping service and has had shares in numerous horses including the wonderful Fast Shot. Unsurprisingly given some of the horses he has bought shares in, his punting passions lie in sprint handicaps on both the turf and All-Weather surfaces!

Value Bets tipster James Boyle had a 14/1 winner yesterday. View today’s bets below.


2:40 York – Alfred Richardson – 1pt win @ 28/1

At a big price, ALFRED RICHARDSON could go well in the mile handicap. He lacks the attractive profile of some of these and is 2lbs above the highest mark he has defied, but should have no issue with the softening ground and gets this trip really well so could pick up the pieces if those up top go too hard. I thought the reapplication of blinkers did him no favours at Ayr last time but he still shaped with some promise, finishing well, and can do better now with the headgear discarded.

4:20 York – Jawwaal – 1pt win @ 6/1

JAWWAAL has already been well supported and it’s frustrating to have missed the bigger quotes about him, but whether right or wrong I still think his claims are better than that of a 6/1 shot! He was a 2pt selection in the Ayr Silver Cup last time (at 25/1!) and tanked through the 6f contest, but was too keen to get home. Now, he drops to 5f for the first time ever, returns to the scene of his career best run on similar ground and should be heavily involved for a yard who boast a solid record at this course.

5:30 York – King Of Tonga – 1pt win @ 25/1

Switching over to David O’Meara’s yard hasn’t paid off for KING OF TONGA yet but there has been some hints of promise and the most recent at Ayr might be a tad better than it looks on the form book. The speedy track on good ground in a race where those up top were not coming back didn’t really help his cause but he stuck on like a horse who isn’t far away from peak form. Slower conditions should help and the handicapper has relented another little bit, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see him involved late.

6:30 Newcastle – Mutabaahy – 1pt win @ 12/1

MUTABAAHY won’t be a selection for everyone as he hasn’t won since June of last year, 23 starts ago, and only has a couple of placed efforts to show in 2019. He is, however, becoming well-treated by the assessors having dropped 11lbs this term and his experienced apprentice gets to remove another 5lbs with his claim. The course is no problem either with the horse’s two peak AW RPR’s coming over C&D, and his record in Class 6 handicaps reads 5-1-2-1-7. Overall, he’s interesting!
