Lay of the day


Star Sports owner Ben Keith picks out one horse he’s happy to lay each day

I am even more intense than usual, today. The run-up to Cheltenham and Royal Ascot always takes its toll, not just on me but also those around me. I try to lighten up a bit, I try to distract myself, but it just doesn't work.

Today’s card contains plenty of short-priced favourites and our biggest players will be licking their lips at the chance to back the likes of My Tent Or Yours, Simonsig, Hurricane Fly and Quevega.

Yet, we’re ready for them and more than happy to lay MY TENT OR YOURS in the opener. He seems to have been awarded superstar status already having never competed in a properly run race over hurdles. This is Cheltenham and I’m more than happy to lay him and the other three for that matter!

We will be standing at Pitch 3 in the Tattersalls again this year, so if you’re going to Cheltenham, make sure you come and see us.

I’ll be standing there in person waiting for you to back all the ‘short-ones’ if it’s your kind of card. Guess what, it's my kind of card let's get it on...!
