Todays Racing Tip – WEST TO THE BRIDGE
Time & Track – 12.45 Newbury (29/11)
Best Odds – 5/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – I backed this horse last time out at Wetherby where he travelled like the winner until making a race defining error at the second last and lost all momentum. I think if he’d have won without that mistake so I’m hoping he can gain compensation here. The handicapper has left him alone and the drop back in trip shouldn’t be a problem having already won twice over this trip. It’s a tricky race but with a clear round I’d be hopeful that this six-year old will be heavily involved for the Skelton’s who are in good form (24% strike-rate in the past fortnight).
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – OLDGRANGEWOOD
Time & Track – 1.50 Newbury (29/11)
Best Odds – 8/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – I’m going Skelton mad (kind of) with my other selection. This horse has been one I’ve been following for a while and continues to slip down the handicap having dropped a pound since his reappearance run at Aintree when third. This eight-year old has improved on his second outing after a 100+-day break almost every time and if doing so again here he could be the answer to a competitive handicap (also his second start after a wind op). He won this race off 10lb higher two seasons ago and is only a pound higher than when winning in this grade at Wetherby back in early 2017. The trip and ground will suit, as will the course and is the choice of Harry Skelton so fingers crossed.
Result – Won +8
