May 2017 – High-Stake Sports Betting Tips
Horse Racing – 2nd May
6.40 Chelmsford Paddy A
- 1pt Win 9/2 Paddy Power
Power Power is likely to be well fancied here after another solid run last time out at Kempton however Paddy A was an eyecatching 4th that day travelling well and doing all his best work late. The Jockey was not over hard on him in the latter stages and James Doyle now takes over. He was only around 1.5 L behind Power Power but with that being Paddy A’s first run for sometime I feel he will strip much fitter this time. I feel he will stay further in future but at his current price he looks a bit of value.
Horse Racing – 12th May
1.50 Chester, Sound Advice
- 12/1 1pt win William Hill, Betvictor, Paddy Power, Stan James, Betfair SB
Sound Advice ran well in the Thirsk Hunt Cup last Saturday on his seasonal debut and if coming on for that run could have a major chance here. He is three wins from five at Chester and a pound lower than his course and distance win last August.
3.35 Chester, Western Hymn
- 17/2 1pt win Stan James
Western Hymn can be a bit of an awkward customer but got back to winning ways on the all weather at Kempton in a listed race in November in first time visor. That was his first win over a mile and half and it is interesting that John Gosden now elects to run him over an extended mile and five furlongs for the first time in his career. Western Hymn has a good record fresh and the switch to first time cheek pieces from the visor, that he was not entirely happy with, should help as he can lose interest once he hits the front.
0.5pt e/w double, at the prices quoted, pays 122.5/1 with Stan James.

Greyhound Racing – 29th May
9.56 Doncaster- ADAMENT JIM – T6
- 2 Points win @ 5/1 (PP, Betfair and Skybet -BOG)
Jim ran a cracker in defeat last time out on Doncaster debut and went into my notebook.
The middle seed is drawn a little wider than norma out in T6 but that could work to his advantage.
Odds on favourite T3 will need a flyer to clear the pace inside and if he were to miss the break this race would be wide open.
Our selection stays well, turn within striking distance and it’s race on at decent odds.
