Saturday Sports Multiple: A Peru win the headline in an 80/1 weekend wager

Ricardo Gareca, Peru
Gareca’s Peru look a good bet for third place

Pandora Hughes landed a 14/1 multiple last Sunday and she's lined up another weekend treble, starting with a punt on outsiders Peru.

“Ricardo Gareca’s side started the competition slowly, but they have improved with every game and were ultimately edged out by host nation Brazil 1-0 in the semi-final, after finishing second in their Group.”

Bet 1: Back Peru to beat Colombia at 4/1

Third-place play-offs can be tricky contests to weigh up, but I think Peru might offer a touch of value in their Copa America consolation match.

Ricardo Gareca's side started the competition slowly, but they have improved with every game and were ultimately edged out by host nation Brazil 1-0 in the semi-final, after finishing second in their Group.

Along the way, they beat Saturday's opponents 2-1 and will be confident of being able to match them again here. Colombia have won only one game in normal time in this competition and have looked some way short of their best, so at the current odds, I'm siding with Peru to finish the tournament with a win.

Bet 2: Back Dhabab to win the Superlative Stakes at 9/4

Charlie Appleby's strong record in this race means that Private Signal and Native Trail have to be taken seriously, but in what looks like a high-class renewal, I'm siding with Dhabab to improve on his Coventry effort.

The No Nay Never colt was sent off as favourite for that contest but didn't get a clear passage and could only finish sixth in the end.

Although that was a relatively disappointing result, it still represents the best form on offer here, and with the extra furlong not likely to inconvenience him, Dhabab can get the better of the Appleby duo and Great Max from the Michael Bell stable.

Bet 3: Back Sir Busker to win the Summer Mile at 4/1

Tilsit is likely to attract plenty of support for this competitive looking Group Two contest on Saturday, after his excellent effort in the Prix d'Ispahan, but I'm siding with the consistent Sir Busker here.

The William Knight five-year-old has a good record on the Ascot straight course, including his third in the Queen Anne last time out. In fact, his form figures over the straight mile read 1433, including a strong fourth in the Queen Elizabeth II.

There is plenty of strength in depth in this line-up, including Listed winner Century Dream and Sir Michael Stoute's Regal Reality, but Sir Busker has been a reliable performer and I think he's a good bet to edge this one.

Total Odds for this multiple: 80/1. Remember, multiple prices are based on our Sportsbook product, so any winnings are exempt from commission.
