Something for the weekend 30/07/22

The final weekend of July is upon us already. There is plenty of action this weekend on BetConnect with both the conclusion of Glorious Goodwood and the Galway Festival. To go along with this, league football is back on the slate with the return of the Premier League just a week away. On top of that, there is a top class card from Hove greyhounds on Saturday night. We’ve had a look over all the action to cherry pick some of our best bets for the weekend.

Horse Racing


We’ll kick off with the horses and the hugely competitive Stewards’ Cup, the 3.20 at Goodwood. Always fiercely competitive, it takes plenty of luck as well as a horse ahead of the handicapper to come out on top. TABDEED (33/1) is as quirky as the day is long but a repeat of either of his runs in May when third in a pair of Listed contests give him strong each way claims.

He found trouble in handicaps at Ascot twice when seen since, including in the Wokingham when behind a few of these. 3 of his 5 career wins have come between the 18th July and the 3rd August while 5 of his top 6 RPR’s have come from June 26th to the 3rd August so this is his time of year.


Chester would not be my favourite track to have a bet at but I can’t resist a little tickle on MY LITTLE TIP in the 3.30. He arguably has not gone on from a promising juvenile campaign as well as connections would have hoped but he finds himself down to a mark just two pounds above his most recent win as a result.

His best effort this season came over this course and distance, while a little cut in the ground is no issue for him. This will be his second start for the excellent Gemma Tutty who has Tom Marquand jockey up for to ride, an eye-catching booking who is 1/1 for the yard. A draw in 1 might not be ideal for a hold up horse (despite it being Chester) but a bigger effort looks forthcoming.



The opening weeks of any football season are always ones to be treated with a little bit of caution before things start to take shape so this is by no means a strong selection at this stage of the campaign.

PLYMOUTH (11/10) will have been disappointed with the way their 2021/22 campaign finished. Failing to win any of their last 5 games saw them miss the playoffs but their home form was solid. They kept 7 clean sheets in their final 8 home games, the only blip on the final day saw them lose 5-0 against the MK Dons when the home side had nothing to play for.

On the flip side of that, Barnsley were abject on their travels in the Championship, winning a single one of their 23 away fixtures. The slide down into calmer waters in League 1 is liable to see them in a better light this season but the home side will start this year with a chip on their shoulder.


Is it coming home? Wembley will be buzzing on Sunday with the England women’s team looking to do what the men couldn’t last summer and land a final on home soil. BETH MEAD has been the catalyst in terms of goals for this England team, tied with Germany’s Alexandra Popp on 6 apiece, Mead will be looking to secure the golden boot with 11/4 to score anytime looking a big enough price given the title up for grabs.

Greyhound Racing

The two big finals at Hove on Saturday night look very tough for punters. 6 railers in the Regency Final and a Sussex Cup made up of 3 middles and 3 wides have the pair as watch only contests.

BALLYBLACK SPEED was the quickest heat winner in the latter named competition and the return to the red jacket can see him win at 7.18. He can lead up his two rivals on the inside with the outer three drawn for trouble, leaving the selection to go clear and land this consolation contest.

The best of luck with all you back this weekend whether you follow the advice or use it to lay but please, always gamble responsibly!
