Wednesday, April 20’s Horse Racing Day NAP with the experts at SportsLens is Coach Carter. He’s back on the road and in class for the 2m handicap pursuit in Perth today (3am). Gordon Elliott’s runner looks well worth a bet with impressive odds of 11/8.
Placed in a Listed horse race in Ayr about three weeks ago, Coach Carter should return to these much calmer waters. Sholokhov’s six-year-old son also saw form for his fall victory over the fences announced at Easter. Coach Carter is therefore our equestrian NAP of the day today. Read even more reasons to support him below…
Why will Coach Carter’s NAP Horse Races of the Day win?
All the top betting sites know that Elliott likes to have runners in Perth. He has a 30% strike rate at this site over the past five seasons. Coach Carter remains relatively unchallenged for his side with one win and two seconds in five steeplechase outings to date.
He beat a winner by 10 lengths over stable mate Gevrey to his bow in this area at the Listowel Harvest Festival last fall. As recent race results reveal, the runner-up won for the second time at Fairyhouse Over Fences on Easter Sunday. Going through the winter didn’t sit well with Coach Carter, but he trained much better when he returned in the spring last time.
Elliott raider can do better in Perth
Only the well-handicapped Beakstown came back as a 9/4 favorite on the horse racing betting sites, was a few lengths too good at Ayr on the final day. It was a Listed race and trainer Carter is now dropping significantly in Class 3. Sean Bowen is now circling and often linking up with the Elliott raiders across the Irish Sea.
Considering all of this, Coach Carter was meant to be our Horse Racing Day NAP for April 20th. A £10 punt on him with 888Sport nets £23.75 if he wins at his current price. New customers can also benefit from a £40 bonus when registering and placing a bet of this value.
