With a fair amount of rain falling last night, most of the racing today will be on soft ground. So look for horses with form on that sort of going, unless fancying having a bet on the all weather surface at Southwell.
Hopefully I can get a good start to the New year and find a few winners, still showing a good profit of around £4000, if betting to a £100 pound stake. That is calculated from when I started the blog in May 2017.
Todays free tip is as follows:
Time: 1:15 Exeter
Current Odds: 6/4
A good winner last time (raised 13lb) for that win. He acts on soft ground and stays well, this horse looks to be a type that will keep improving this winter. With his trainer known for having a good season when the ground gets wet, her horses seem to show their best on the soft, her horses are starting to hit form now. My selection has to take a step forward today, as it is a stronger race than his last, but he is a big horse and very lightly raced, hopefully he can win again. Of rivals Billy Hicks looked to be a decent prospect last season, he may benefit for today’s run, Here’s Herbie may be the main threat, he was second last year in this race, so acts on the track and underfoot conditions should be OK.
I will update later around 1:45-2pm with something.
I am not having another bet, pleased to see Yaltari win. Good start to 2018!
