Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – ONE FOR ROSIE
Time & Track – 1.50 Newbury (28/12)
Best Odds – 9/2 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – This grey won on racecourse debut, won on seasonal reappearance last season and also won on return from a two-month break so there should be no worries with him ‘needing the run’. He was last seen finishing third in a Grade 1 novice hurdle at the Grand National meeting behind some very good horses and prior to that was beaten in testing ground by a short-head in the often informative EBF handicap final at Sandown and that race again has produced winners since. He’s 7lb higher now but there’s the suggestion that he might just be better than a handicap horse, if fully revved up he’s certainly the one to beat in my opinion.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – COPPERHEAD
Time & Track – 2.25 Newbury (28/12)
Best Odds – 7/2 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Just a five-year old who is making only his third chase start here but was impressive the last day when winning by four-lengths with plenty to spare at the beginning of the month. He’s up 9lb for that but there’s plenty of scope for improvement in this sphere and over staying-trips. His chase debut was won by Truckers Lodge, who finished second in Friday’s Welsh Grand National, when this gelding was back in fifth and he’s a previous soft-ground winner over hurdles so should be fine on the ground. I’d hope if bringing the form of that recent win here then he’s a serious player.
Result – Won +3.5
