With just the Scottish and Irish Grand Nationals, and the Punchestown Festival to look forward to as the National Hunt season draws to a close, punters are beginning to focus on the flat season.
The 2011 Cheltenham Festival and Aintree’s 2011 Grand National meeting were profitable events for punters, and with the bookies looking to claw back their losses, the flat racing season is sure to be intense.
Across the next five and a half months we’ll be covering all the great flat races from the five Classics to Royal Ascot, and Ladbrokes news will be offering up our opinions and horse racing betting tips on the matter.
As the home of flat racing, all eyes will be on Newmarket come the end of April for the Guineas meeting which features the first two Classics of the season.
Frankel currently dominates the 2000 Guineas betting with odds of 4/5 and Frankel is also favoured to run a big race in the Derby as his Derby odds currently make him favourite at 9/2.
Our horse racing betting tip is to take the 6/1 double Ladbrokes are offering for Frankel to win the 200 Guineas and Derby.
The 1000 Guineas betting is headed by Havant at 5/1, although the betting for the 2000 Guineas is a lot tighter than the 2000 Guineas betting.
The Guineas, the Derby, the Oaks, the St Leger and Royal Ascot will all be huge betting events in the horse racing flat calendar, and you can find full coverage of all of these events at Ladbrokes news.
Each day we’ll asses the best of today’s horse racing odds and our horse racing betting tips will be free to see on Ladbrokes news.
A £10 stake on Frankel winning the 2000 Guineas and Derby double would return £70. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth up to £30.
