Today's Horse Racing Odds: Friday 13th May

There are seven meetings scheduled to take place in the UK and Ireland on Friday with the July Festival at Newmarket continuing to play out.

Betfred is paying out an Extra Place in the 13:50, 15:00 and 16:45.

New London is the 9/4 favourite in the 13:50, having won on his two previous visits to this venue, however, Yonafis (4/1), who has Tom Marquand on board, has won three of his four career outings and could be a contender.

York is the next up with a further seven races lined up between 14:05 and 17:30 with Betfred’s Extra Place promotion available in the 17:00 contest.

There are also seven races set to play out at Ascot with the action going from 14:15 through to 17:45.

Far Shot (15/8) was a winner on debut at Yarmouth on June 8th, but came home a disappointing 18th of 24 when last seen at Ascot on June 15th.

The two-year-old son of Kodiac steps up to 6f for the first time in the 14:15 and could benefit from the extra distance.
