Saturday horse racing tips: Each-way double from Sandown and Kempton

Tipstrr racing pundit Ben Hawksford's eye for outsider value has picked out a couple of high-odds runners that he thinks could out-race their huge prices and might be worth a cautious each-way bet.

15:00 (Sandown) Bermeo

Bermeo comes to Sandown on Saturday afternoon as a 12-year old-gelding with previous winning form over this distance, and interestingly, he has some impressive form when reappearing after extended break.

After 78 days off, he looks well handicapped after having won a Class 2 at Newbury in April, when returning after another extended 113-day break.

He runs for Harry Fry, who is a very shrewd trainer and they have travelled 100 miles to Sandown for this, and with Bryan Carver taking over again (he was on board for Bermeo's last success), together they have a 22% strike rate.

When all of this is taken into account, Bermeo's current 50/1 looks very attractive as a massive price that he could easily outrun.

19:00 (Kempton) Billie Lou

Billie Lou is an unexposed three-year-old filly who also comes off an extended break, having last run 184 days ago at Epsom in a Class 4 over seven furlongs.

She finished last on that day and was beaten by over 50 lengths, but that came after a poor start from which she showed little inclination to recover.

Prior to that, on her only other run she finished last out of ten on Lingfield's poly track, but again she got away slowly and never recovered.

At Kempton on Saturday evening, she comes back after a break as Adam West's only runner at the track, and with Raul Da Silva booked as his only ride at the course, we can hope that they can make the most of their partnership.

A better break from a favourable low draw and a smoother run might be what Billie Lou needs to be competitive, and with Da Silva on board, she might just have it in her to come closer to a frame finish despite her huge odds.
