The horse racing NAP of the Day with SportsLens experts on Thursday, 11 August, is Boundless Ocean. He is down in distance for Group 3 Desmond Stakes over a mile at Leopardstown this evening (7:20). Jim Bolger’s charge looks well worth a wager at tasty 2/1 odds today.
Purchased by Sheik Abdululelah Abdulaziz A Almousa since his last horse racing start and win, Boundless Ocean tops official ratings here off a mark of 110. After course victories over nine and 10 furlongs this season, dropping back to a mile shouldn’t hold any fears. This three-year-old Teofilo colt is thus our horse racing NAP of the Day today.
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Boundless Ocean win?
Bolger has saddled the winner of the Desmond Stakes on six previous occasions. Half of those have been three-year-olds and stable jockey Kevin Manning has partnered the yard’s three most recent successes in this contest. In Boundless Ocean, they have a Group 3 winner often well-fancied on the best UK betting sites with course form figures of 121 this season.
Victory in a 1m 2f maiden here on his second outing of the campaign saw the second, third and fourth all score since. After finishing down the field in the 2000 Guineas, Boundless Ocean was a fine third in the Gallinule Stakes before shaping like a non-stayer in a couple of tries over 1m 4f. Dropping down in trip for the Meld Stakes saw him resume winning ways with his latest race result here last month.
Today’s horse racing NAP has fine course record this term
When ridden to lead by Manning approaching the final furlong, Boundless Ocean kept on strongly. With that success over nine furlongs under his belt, he should be a thorough stayer at a mile outside of Classic company. This isn’t much of a race and leading horse racing betting sites clearly agree with that assessment. The weights and terms favour Boundless Ocean, though.
With Bolger bringing a 20 per cent strike rate over the last fortnight into today, his runner just had to be our horse racing NAP of the Day for 11 August. A £10 punt on Boundless Ocean with 888Sport returns £30 if he can follow-up on his course victory here.
