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!

Horse Racing tipster James Boyle has picked out two Value Bets for today’s action.

6:10 Kempton – Sheberghan – 1pt win @ 9/1

SHEBERGHAN hasn’t had the career his breeding suggested may be possible but he’s still only a 4-year-old and made a promising start for Ed Dunlop’s yard when beaten little more than a few lengths over at Pontefract last month. That was his first outing since April, so he’s entitled to improve fitness-wise, and returning to the All-Weather shouldn’t be a problem based on his third at Lingfield in January. From a mark of 77, he could be dangerously treated and Jim Crowley is a good booking for this yard.

7:25 Newcastle – Excessable – 1pt win @ 14/1

Now a full 10lbs below his last winning mark, EXCESSABLE is becoming a more tempting proposition and looks overpriced at any double-figured quote. He was a bit disappointing last time out but had shaped well on his penultimate start at Musselburgh, beaten a length-and-a-half after travelling with encouragement and not getting the clearest of runs. An artificial surface is somewhat of a question mark but he did run a fine race over C&D in 2017 and it’s worth taking a punt that it won’t hinder him.
