Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – MIAH GRACE
Time & Track – 2.50 Leicester (09/01)
Best Odds – 4/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – It might be foolish to oppose the Harry Fry-trained Lightly Squeeze who is on the hunt for a four-timer but he’s having to carry a 7lb penalty again which he might find tough off this mark and if so then I’d expect this Northern-raider to take advantage. Jedd O’Keefe, who has a runner at both Catterick and Newcastle tomorrow, sends this five-year old down from North Yorkshire for his handicap debut off a workable mark. He’s won two of his last three and finished second on the other outing in which the winner went in again next time out, both wins came on soft/heavy ground so should handle conditions and it’s good that Joe Colliver has travelled down with him to take the ride again. I’d be disappointed if he’s not involved in the finish.
Result – Non Runner
Todays Racing Tip – NEFYN POINT
Time & Track – 3.10 Catterick Bridge (09/01)
Best Odds – 9/2 @ Sky Bet
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Won on his penultimate start over 2m1f at Sedgefield and travelled well into the race over C&D on New Year’s Day before becoming outpaced. He’s been left on the same mark but Brian Hughes (won on him two runs ago) takes over from an amateur in the saddle and his presence might be enough to see this still fairly unexposed six-year old get back to winning ways. The forecast rain won’t be a bother having already won on soft ground and any improvement would see him go close.
Result – Lost
