What Horses to Look Out For in the 2020 Flat Racing Season
Horse racing has always been a huge sport throughout the world, but especially in England and Ireland with us having some of the best horses, trainers and jockeys in the world. Today we have looked a little bit more in depth on what horses you should be following now that the horse racing season is back up and running.
Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions affected majority of industries but not many worse than the bookies and punters who are missing their weekly bets due to horse races being postponed. However, we have seen over the lockdown period a shift in patterns of gamblers moving over to the live casino’s markets, especially the ones available here. This is due to the fact not only was there any live sporting events for gambling markets, but also due to these Casinos offering huge deposit matches, unmatchable sign up offers in their live casinos, slot machines and card tables.
The first hot prospect is Charlie Appleby trained Al Suhail who finished 2nd in the Autumn Stakes and we are of the view that the Autumn Stakes is a rather touch acid test; one of which Al Suhail proved to punters that he is a top-quality racehorse. We believe that Al Suhail has the qualities to become a top performer in races greater than a mile of the Autumn Stakes after it’s progressive 2019 in which only got better and better as the year went on. A highly raved about horse in which we will be following closely.
The next three-year-old we will be looking at in the racing world to look out is Art Power who is trained by Tim Easterby. Art Power fully announced itself on the scene when it burst to victory in the York Notice event back in October – a very impressive performance. Art Power looks as if he has the potential to be an excellent sprint horse. However, we don’t know how good Art Power is just yet, maybe too early to say on the 3-year-old, as he could fall into the category of too good for handicapped race but not quite good enough for high-class races; only time will tell.
Finally, last but not least in the slightest, is Berkshire Rocco, a very exciting racehorse trained by Andrew Balding. Making his debut over 7 furlongs and then followed up with a 4th at Goodwood in what was a tough race with some quality opponents in the race, we can see Berkshire Rocco having a bright future. We can see that his pedigree is that of a middle-distance performer and we expect to see the best of Berkshire Rocco once stepped up to 12 furlongs or more.
