Beverley best bets: Vondelpark and Amerigo Vespucci lead each-way hopes

Our colleagues across the corridor in the Tipstrr office have been busy studying their data to bring us their most widely-backed each-way prospects in this wide open handicap at Beverley.

20:20 Beverley: Churchill Tyres Handicap Div I  (7 furlongs 96 yards)

The morning withdrawal of well-fancied Sold The Dream leaves the three market principals covered by barely a single betting point between 5/2 and 7/2, making it hard to back any of them with any sense of confidence or enthusiasm.

That luke-warm support suggests it might be wiser to look for more attractive each-way value elsewhere among the remaining six starters, all of whom are available at double-digit the time of writing.

Sara Ender’s four-year-old gelding, Vondelpark, has attracted some attention in the Tipstrr camp, despite the most recent of his two career wins coming 12 outings ago this time last year.

The firmer ground might enhance his chances of improving on his most recent outing over this course and distance 17 days ago, when he never really recovered from an awkward start.

His mark has dropped 17 pounds since that last success, and now racing in lower-level 0-55 company, the stage might be set for a more prominent run under returning jockey Harrison Shaw.

Suggested each-way bet (1): Vondelpark each-way in the 20:20 at Beverley


Further down the betting, and at the bottom of the weights, Amerigo Vespucci is the only horse among the nine starters to have enjoyed a visit to the winner’s enclosure this season.

That maiden success came in a similar 0-55 handicap over a mile at Yarmouth in April, when he gave Hollie Doyle a great ride, rallying strongly to regain the lead by a short head in the final strides.

That win has been franked the recent form of runner-up Dashing Donkey, who has gone on to win back-to-back races over the last three weeks, while Amerigo Verspucci was last seen coming a creditable third of eight at Brighton a month ago.

He has since changed hands to come under the wing of John Wainwright, so this stable debut could be a catalyst for further improvement, while the presence of Cam Hardie in the saddle puts him in capable hands.
