Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – FALCON SUN
Time & Track – 3.00 Lingfield (28/01)
Best Odds – 7/2 @ William Hill
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Won a couple of Leicester handicaps around this time last year, the latter coming off only 3lb lower and a couple of efforts so far this season have hinted that this six-year old is ready to win again. He returned to action with an eight-length second in a much better race than this at Cheltenham’s Showcase meeting in October and he was beaten virtually the same distance at Fontwell on Boxing Day. The handicapper has eased him a pound for that and the return of Harry Skelton in the saddle, coupled with the drop in grade could see this son of Falco return to the winners enclosure. I can also see Gregarious going well now on a winning mark for a trainer who enjoy success at this course.
Result – Race Abandoned
Todays Racing Tip – LADRONNE
Time & Track – 4.10 Newcastle (28/01)
Best Odds – 10/3 @ William Hill
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Very unexposed six-year old who is making just his second handicap start. The first came when finishing fourth in a 0-125 on Boxing Day at Fakenham and the gelding is now dropped into 0-100 company so should find this a great deal easier. He was only beaten five-and-a-half lengths that day and is able to race off the same mark here and though the inexperienced Mr Joe Whitaker is on board he can claim 7lb which could be key. If seeing out this longer trip I’d expect him to go close as it doesn’t look like it’d take much to win.
Result – Won +3.33
