3.00pm Lingfield - Abe Lincoln 2pts Win (2/1) We're starting to see a little more of Ryan Moore back in the UK now, him and Jeremy Noseda will hope to already have one win on the board by the time this race comes around following their long odds chance Walk In The Sun in the... Continue Reading →

1.50pm Kempton - The Unit 2pts Win (3/1) Alan King's string are in flying form at the moment and on the other side of things, Paul Nicholls' are not. Therefore I'm taking the hot favourite Cyrname on with The Unit. They have kept him on the sidelines while waiting for better ground which he finally... Continue Reading →

2.25pm Ludlow - Coastal Tiep 2pts Win (2/1) Coastal Tiep's best efforts have come on better ground so this drying surface should play to his strengths. He beat Wotzizname on chase debut who has since won twice and then was second to Captain Chaos at Aintree on ground softer than ideal and that rival has... Continue Reading →

2.40pm Taunton - Oscar Rose 3pts Win (1/1) How Oscar Rose hasn't won a hurdle race yet I don't know, she's bumped into some pretty useful rivals but today appears to be an ideal opportunity to get off the mark over timber. A talented bumper horse, she won a Listed race before finishing second in... Continue Reading →

2.45pm Lingfield - Finnegan's Garden 2pts Win (7/4) A 35 length winner 3 starts back under today's pilot Tommy Dowling, this appears to be a golden opportunity for Finnegan's Garden to register another victory. Over course and distance last time out he raced from 8lbs out of the handicap to be second behind a subsequent... Continue Reading →

3.15pm Market Rasen - Solomon Grey 2pts Win (5/2) Likely to be a warm order in this contest on his handicap debut, this looks a good opportunity for Solomon Grey to take advantage of his opening mark. He has been a very consistent sort for Dan Skelton having never finished out of the places, his... Continue Reading →

1.15pm Ascot - Count Meribel 1pt Win (3/1) On pedigree this sort of trip on testing ground would not be what Count Meribel needs, but he has shown that he is certainly up to it with 2 soft ground wins and a creditable second on heavy. A course and distance win in November racked up... Continue Reading →

2.35pm Catterick - Aaron Lad 1.5pts Win (3/1) Dr Richard Newland and Sam Twiston-Davies teamed up for an 11/2 winner at Exeter yesterday and are operating at a 29% strike rate together this season, they saddle Aaron Lad here. Arguably his best run came in Ireland when he was trained by Kieran Purcell and he... Continue Reading →

2.30pm Exeter - Vision Des Flos 2pts Win (10/3) Djingle makes his debut here for Paul Nicholls after winning a Listed hurdle in France, but his price looks short enough and I believe the value lies with Vision Des Flos. He won the Goffs Land Rover Bumper at the Punchestown Festival back in April beating the... Continue Reading →

Saturday 10th February

1.50pm Newbury - Lough Derg Farmer 2pts Win (11/2) Barters Hill makes his much anticipated return in this contest and he will be the main focus of attention. On old form this mark of 142 looks on the lenient side and I'll be happy to see him win at his ever shortening price, but there... Continue Reading →
