Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – TEESCOMPONENTS LAD
Time & Track – 2.35 Catterick (31/01)
Best Odds – 3/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – This seven-year old has now returned to the same mark as when last successful, which was almost a year ago at Carlisle in a race with more depth to it than this. Has ran well on a couple of occasions this season when just outside the places in higher grades and he was also deemed good enough to run in a Grade 2 at Wetherby and though beaten 40-lengths a few ahead of him included The Worlds End and Ballyandy. The return to a better surface should help as could the addition of first-time cheekpieces and the booking of Brian Hughes is noteworthy in his current form.
Result – Won +3
Todays Racing Tip – INDIAN BRAVE
Time & Track – 2.55 Chepstow (31/01)
Best Odds – 4/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Won a maiden hurdle over a similar trip to this a while back now but has been very lightly-raced since (through injury I assume) and after switching hands has ran two good races the last twice, filling the second-placed spot on both occasions. The first of those came over C&D when beaten by Domaine De L’Isle who is now rated 146 having won his next two starts. He’s on the same mark here and only went down by just under two-lengths when last seen on Boxing Day at Sedgefield. He has to carry joint top-weight which in this ground isn’t ideal but if in a similar or better mood here he should be going close.
Result – Won +4
Todays Racing Tip – PARICOLOR
Time & Track – 3.25 Chepstow (31/01)
Best Odds – 12/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 0.5pt ew (4 places)
Analysis – Back-to-back wins on his first two starts in handicap company before a slight blip at Market Rasen when staying-on from well off the pace to finish a distant third behind a well-backed winner. He’s still only a four-year old so has plenty of time on his side and he’s been dropped a pound since that last run, there’s every chance he could bounce back to form and with Fergus Gillard (claiming 7lb) back in the saddle he could be overpriced racing off a nice weight. There’s five places on offer for each-way at a couple of firms, though I’ll be going with the four with better current odds.
Result – Non Runner
