4:40 Kempton Racing Tips (23rd January)

Clive Cox Horse Trainer
KEMPTON 4.40 

A 12 runner class 7 race doesnt set my heart racing but probably still faster than some of these horses, I think I can narrow it down to 5 and maybe even better, Kyllukey is the only known front running type but is only 5th top on my figures from 2017 but did indicate a return to form last time out when finishing 4th and could make the frame but I doubt it will hold everything at bay, Elliot The Dragon is 4th top rated on all times and actually 1st on c/d times but the jockey booked to ride is 0-19 for the stable which is a little off putting, Storm Lightning is 3rd best using a 2017 time, Slipalongtrevaskis comes out 2nd best but thats using a Chelmsford time then the jockeys 1-52 for the stable makes me doubt their intentions or if the horse is fit enough to do its best, top spot is MR POTTER 12/1 and using its Chelmsford time its quite a few spots clear and if able to reproduce the same level here it could win cosily but i will admit my stakes won't be at full strength and I might have smaller covering bets on the other 4 horses mentioned above. 

Mr Potter 20/1 9th

KEMPTON 6.45

Only 7 runners in this class 4 race, National Glory is the most likely looking pacesetter but again maybe won't be able to repel all challengers, the bottom weight Nezar would be top rated looking at a 2017 time but that now looks as though it might be a fluke result timewise but its next best time recorded in 2017 would make it 3rd top just 4lbs below my joint top rated pair, RED ALERT 7/2 who is usually held up for a late run and KAMRA 4/1 who likes to track the leaders and may get 1st run at the leader so I will back them both in this race.

5:45 Newcastle Racing Tips (22nd January)

Horse Racing Profits
NEWCASTLE 5.45

Only7 runners in this class 2 race with 19k prize money to the winner, there are 2 horses in the race that won last time out and both are front running types and Ornate is my 4th top rated, 3rd top spot is Encore D’or who usually tracks the leaders while Stone Of Destiny can either track the leaders or be held up for a late run and is my 2nd top rated but top spot goes to OUTRAGE 9/1 one of those front running types who won last time out and it could lead all the way again here and it does have good trainer/jockey stats. 

Outrage 9/1 4th 

NEWCASTLE 6.15

There's only Bowson Fred known as a pacesetting type in this 8 runner race but timewise its only my 3rd top rated, so ought to do enough to make the frame but may struggle to stay ahead to the line, DYNAMO WALT can be held up or track the pacesetters and is my 2nd top rated but only 1lb off my top spotted FENDALE 5/1 but this one hasn't run for over 100 days and as its so close between them I will go with backing them both. 

Fendale 5/1 1st
Dynamo Walt 33/1 4th 

NEWCASTLE 7.45

This class 6 race is hard to analyse as there's no known front-runners in the 13 runner field which always makes things hard to solve, Duke Cosimo is 3rd best on c/d times but Broken Wings has a time from Wolverhampton which would put it in 3rd spot, my 2nd top rated is Avenue Of Stars who usually likes to track the pacemakers but my top-rated selection really wants a fast pace to aim at and this straight course does usually find more horses trying to lead than on courses where they go round a bend so I'm hoping its fast and furious and that EPEIUS 8/1 can stay on the stronger at the finish.

Epeius 8/1 3rd

7:25 Wolverhampton Racing Tips (21st January)

Free horse racing tips
WOLVERHAMPTON 7.25

INAAM hasn't run here recently and its 1 run from a few years back was a slow time and it races as though further would suit it better so it would be a potential lay at 9/4. 

LAUBALI likes to track the leaders and then try to stay on strongly at the finish but maybe all too late in the make-up of this race so another potential lay at 9/1. 

ANONYMOUS JOHN is 1 of 3 in this race that likes to lead and drawn ok in stall 4 and is my 3rd top rated so could do enough to make the frame at 14/1.

MARTINEO hasn't any form at this distance and everything points to it wanting further so not for me here and would be a lay unless heavily backed by connections from 10/1. 

MONUMENTAL MAN another of the 3 known frontrunners in the race and my top rated so if getting to the front this one could lead all the way. 

AHUNDREDNOTOUT is one that prefers to track the pacesetters and then stay on resolutely its 4th top on my list so could make the frame if the leaders go off too fast and fade but 5/1 isn't really an each way price. 

TY ROCK BRANDY hasn't any fast times at this distance mainly due to the fact that it points to it being better over shorter distances so another to possibly lay at 6/1. 

KUPA RIVER is the 3rd pacesetting type drawn in stall 1 but on form is held by Monumental Man and its gone 14 races without adding to its solitary win but is relatively lightly raced but there's not much meat on the bone at 4/1. 

BURTONWOOD isn't in my top 4 ratings and poorly drawn in stall 9, it usually tracks the leaders but I would look to lay it here at 9/1. 

SUMMARY: My top 3 ratings are all front runners and the hold up types look unlikely to catch the pacesetters in this race unless the 3 of them push each other too hard, I've got Kupa River in stall 1 rated just 2lbs below MONUMENTAL MAN 9/1 in stall 7, the draw alone could narrow the gap between them and I would have usually backed them both but Kupa River isn't value in my opinion at its price and is only 2nd top on my figures so I will gamble with the one selection.

Monumental Man 9/1 3rd

3:40 Lingfield Racing Tips (19th January)

Winning Racing Tips
LINGFIELD 3.40 

It does annoy me that there's only 6 runners in the only sprint at the meeting, Dotted Swiss may find the trip too far if there's a fast early pace, Lalania and Miracle Works haven't any course form and would need to improve on their best from elsewhere to win this race, Real Estate hasn't raced over this distance before but has run a close 2nd over 7 furlongs where it faded nearing the finish and only beaten a length so could be a big here, Aguerooo is my 2nd top rated but its best form is in class 6 races and hasn't won from 14 attempts now so I will be backing my top-rated selection BIG TIME MAYBE 10/1 and the booking of a top jockey for his 1st ride on the horse is hopefully a pointer to connections expecting a big run here and I think its overpriced for its actual chance. 

Big Time Maybe 10/1 4th

WOLVERHAMPTON 5.45

 Its not really a great race but for class 5 it looks very competitive, Union Rose is 6th top rated and a possible pacesetter, A Sure Welcome comes out 5th top and likes to track the pacesetters, Its All A Joke is 4th just 1lb behind Rockies Spirit in 3rd spot, my 2nd top rated is Brandy Station who won last time out but seems to win in class 6 and then not any higher class and then dropped again like last time and it won so maybe this will be too much for it but we know its in good heart but my top rated is MIDNIGHTLY 25/1 who took a break over the summer and has had 3 runs this winter and has been found a good opportunity here to get back to winning ways by leading from start to finish and at such a big price I have to go with an each way wager in this race. 

Midnightly 25/1 5th

WOLVERHAMPTON 8.15 

This 11 runner class 7 dash can be split in roughly 2 halves, the bottom 5 in the handicap would have to improve greatly to win here despite it being a poor race, of the 6 left 2 of them have done ok times at Newcastle but have only slow times here, Azyaaf is making its handicap debut and they could have been holding something back from its so far poor form but I doubt it would be in this class if they thought it was going to improve greatly, FUEL INJECTION 14/1 from stall 3 is the only known frontrunner in the race its my 3rd top rated so could be a decent each way bet and its only 3lbs off top spot, it could try to pinch this race from the front, CAPTAIN RYAN 2/1 is 2nd top on my figures and has won its last 2 races so is in cracking form but pricewise is way too short for it in my opinion I was expecting 7/2 the field, top spot is STORM LIGHTNING 4/1 who won at Kempton when last dropped into this class, I cannot narrow it down any further and I will look to dutch all 3 of them.

3:05 Lingfield Racing Tips (18th January)

LINGFIELD 3.05 

I cannot believe just how bad 3 of the 4 sprints today really are leaving me with just this race worthy of saying much about, the two 3-year-olds havnt shown anything so far that would make me think they can win this race, surprisingly for a 5 furlong dash theres not a lot of pacesetters in the race which might help my selection, Alaskan Bay my 4th top rated has been in good form lately but maybe now in the grasp of the official handicapper but it could still go well especially as they have employed a 7lb claimer in this race which would move it to joint top spot but he is making his debut for this stable so im not completely sure if its a positive move or not but I think it is and therefore could still make the frame but would have to run a faultless race to win the race, PHAROH JAKE 11/2 who won last time out starts off as my 3rd top rated but again the stable has employed the 7lb claiming apprentice who won on it then, which would move it to top spot and if getting a clear run could win again, my original 2nd top rated is Fareeq who ought to be staying on at the finish but maybe too late in the make-up of this race, my original top rated and the most likely pacesetter is SANDFRANKSKIPSGO 6/1 who could ping out from stall 2 and get control of the race and then kick off the bend and attempt to pinch it from the front so I will go with backing both selections to cover both angles. 

Sandfrankskipsgo 15/2 1st + EX £42.20
Pharoh Jake 11/2 2nd 

Lingfield 2.30 

Tan comes out top on my figures and its a front running sort but I'm not sure if it can lead in this class but has earnt the right to have a go, my 2nd top rated is GORGEOUS NOORA 5/2 is another pacesetting type and in this small field the draw won't matter and I might have a small bet if there is any value in its price. Which there isn't. 

Gorgeous Noora 5/2 1st

Kempton 4.10 

If I go back to 2017 then Knockout Blow and Ask The Guru would be well clear of this field but they haven't been anywhere near that level for over a year now but none of the others has shown anything worthwhile but at least the latter did a time fast enough to register last year so may be worth a small bet if there's any value in the betting. At 16/1 ASK THE GURU is too big a price for me to let it run without a small each way wager on it. Kempton 7.45 this is a class 7 race and another where there's not much recent form to work with, I think the winner may come from one of these four, Le Manege Enchante 7/2, Isabella Ruby 9/2, Monarch Maid 11/2 and Compton Prince 7/1 and dutching them to small stakes may be the answer.3:05

Ask The Guru 16/1 6th

6:25 Newcastle Racing Tips (17th January)

NEWCASTLE 6.25

If only I knew what was going to set the pace in this race, I've got a possible hidden danger in the race and only 5 with times fast enough to register on my data, Skyva is my 3rd top rated and usually likes to track the leader, whoever that is, I've got joint top rated horses with SCENERY 10/1 who is in stall 12 on this straight course and in the make-up of this race I have the feeling those drawn in the higher half might have the edge, my other joint top rated is the topweight DANDY HIGHWAYMAN 6/1 who won 2 runs ago and if the 7lb claiming apprentice is worth their allowance it moves it into clear top spot and therefore has to be my selection but I might have a smaller saving bet on Scenery just in case the apprentice jockey doesn't have the best of rides. 

Dandy Highwayman 11/1 1st
Scenery 11/1 Unp

NEWCASTLE 6.55

There are only 3 known front-runners in this race which is poor for a 5 furlong dash but hopefully it will a fast enough pace for my selection to aim at, Gnaad in stall 2 may do best of the front-runners being my 4th top rated but it hasn't run over this c/d before, Gamesome who likes to track the leaders is my 3rd top rated but is on a very long losing run, Landing Night very often runs a decent race and could make the frame here being my 2nd top rated, my top rated and selection is ANOTHER ANGEL 5/1 who ought to be staying on resolutely at the finish especially if the leaders are tiring. 

Another Angel 5/1 1st 

NEWCASTLE 7.25

There's 4 in this race which has led before and this race could be won from the front, the bottom weight Spoken Words has one good time to its name but that is looking a bit of a fluke as its now had 41 runs without a win, Cuppacoco is my 4th top rated and a possible pacesetter in this race, Windforpower is a versatile type who can lead at times and its my joint 2nd top rated in this race alongside Social Butterfly who could be the one to prosper if the leaders go off too fast but my top rated is ASTRAEA 4/1 who is versatile with its racing tactics and can lead but it doesn't have to lead to win but it will race prominently.

6:00 Kempton Racing Tips (16th January)

KEMPTON 6.00 

Madrinho is 3rd top rated and has a good jockey booking so could make the frame, Treacherous hasnt shown much in 2018 and may need further, Princely hasnt any course form and only a slow time from Chelmsford so may struggle here, Anonymous John is my 2nd top rated using a 2017 time and has only ran once over this c/d since that year and is versatile with its racing tactics, Little Palaver is my top rated and could get to the front here from stall 3 and if leading should prove hard to catch, Full Intention hasnt any distance form on the allweather tracks but a fast time on good to firm going on turf points to it probably taking to this surface and therefore a danger, Hello Girl needs to improve timewise to be competitive in this race, Mont Kiara hasnt done enough timewise in the last 2 years to win this race, Rock Of Estonia runs as though a shorter distance would suit it better than todays distance, Miracle Works hasnt a time to make my top 4 ratings and is a maiden after 8 runs and cant see why that should change here, Soar Above is usually staying on at the finish at this distance but maybe too late to get competitive in this race, Global Melody hasnt any form on this surface and distance but would be 3rd top rated if it can reproduce its Southwell time on this different surface. 

SUMMARY: My selection LITTLE PALAVER 7/1 is a front running sort and in the make-up of this race it could lead and gain control of the rails and attempt to lead all the way, the 7lb claiming apprentice has a decent 19% win rate for this stable and the claim ought to swing things into its favour. 

Little Palaver 11/1 1st (DHT)

KEMPTON 6.30 

Only 6 runners here and its maybe a race-best left alone as there's negatives and positives about all of them, Bernies Boy comes out joint top rated and the apprentices 7lb claim should move it top rated on its own but the apprentice is 0-38 for this stable which puts me off but never say never, so Doc Sportello is the other joint top rated but only has 7% and 5% win rates on the trainer/jockey stats but if pushed might be my bet at 7/1, Al Asef’s trainer has a 22% win rate here with their older horses, Peggys Angel may prefer a shorter trip and the trainer has a poor 1-51 record at this course, King Robert maybe better on a slower surface and isnt of any value as the 5/4 favourite, Gold Hunter could be dangerous if able to repeat its best time on grass.

5:15 Kempton Racing Tips (15th January)

Winning Racing Tips
KEMPTON 5.15 

This must be one of the worst races or ages and its not a class 7 affair, Monarch maid is versatile with its racing tactics which includes leading but the likely pacemaker here is Tick The Boxes who did finish 2nd three runs ago at Southwell but most of its form recently has been poor, New Rich won last time out but not here and I had to go back to 2014 for its best time over this c/d but then again we know its fully fit so it could go well, COMPTON PRINCE 11/1 has got the plum draw against the rails who has run fairly consistently on its last 4 runs and could be the answer here but my stakes certainly won't be at full strength.

Compton Prince 11/1 4th

KEMPTON 6.45 

EXCELLENT GEORGE would come out 4th best using its time from Chelmsford but is quite a way below that level at this course. 

UPAVON hasn't any recent course form but its best time from Chelmsford would put it into 3rd top spot and the jockey has a good 17% win rate for this stable. 

FIVETWOEIGHT comes out top rated using c/d times and that's the 2nd fastest time on all 3 of the tracks with this surface but the jockeys 1-23 record put me off a little. 

COMPAS SCOOBIE has only run here once but it does have the fastest time from Chelmsford and top figure all round and the stable does well here with its older horses. 

BUSBY is 3rd best on c/d times and 2nd best on Chelmsford times so ought to run a decent race here but may be in the handicapper’s grasp. 

BERNIES BOY looks the most likely of these to set the pace and is 2nd best on c/d times, then take off the apprentices 7lb claim its joint top but the apprentices 0-38 for the stable is off-putting and it may also be out of its depth class-wise. 

SUMMARY: Its a strange race in many ways for such a small field, the bottom pair maybe outclassed here and the top 2 in the grip of the official handicapper leaving Fivetwoeight who is top rated on c/d times but I do have COMPAS SCOOBIE 11/4 rated 4lb’s higher using a Chelmsford time and with what looks a significant jockey booking has to be my selection.

Compas Scoobie 11/4 6th

Monday, 14 January 2019

5:15 Wolverhampton Racing Tips (14th January)

WOLVERHAMPTON 5.15 

VERY HONEST front running type and drawn well in stall 4, its dropped in class and has a fast time from Kempton but hasn't run on this surface before but fancied at 7/2.

TIME TO REASON hasn't any form on this surface or distance and I'm thinking that this surface might not suit it so one I would lay at 9/2. 

OUR MAN IN HAVANA has a time just outside my top five ratings so could possibly make the frame being a front runner coming out of stall 6. 

MOTHER OF DRAGONS has only got slow times at this distance and is 0-15 on the all-weather surfaces plus this distance may be too far for it. 

ORIENTAL RELATION hasn't shown much lately despite sometimes showing a fast early pace but does have A time from 2017 that would put it well clear of this field but not for me here. 

RED INVADER is versatile when it comes to racing tactics but timewise it needs to improve a good few spots.

FILBERT STREET is making its handicap debut here but it looks as though further will suit it better but maybe connections have been hiding its potential. 

ALWAYS AMAZING has only shown slow times over this c/d recently and would need to spring to form unexpectedly to win here. 

CARPET TIME has got a time just 2lb’s below my top rated so could to go well but stall 11 might not help its cause, the trainer has a 15% win rate here so could possibly go well but not much value at 11/2. 

SPIRIT POWER could find this trip too far if the early pace is as fast as I think it might be so not forme in this race. 

INDIAN AFFAIR a possible front runner with a good time from early 2018 but stall 12 isn't ideal and it would need to bounce back to form to be competitive in this race. 

THORNTOUN LADY has a time from 2017 which would put it in 2nd spot on my figures but on recent times it's not for me here.

SANTAFIORA is well weighted and won last time out but the 2nd that day is weighted to reverse the form but the winner perhaps had more to give if pushed and 4/1 2nd favourite. 

SUMMARY: This should be a fast run affair for its class with 4 natural front running sorts and I think I can narrow my list down to 3 or 4 possible winners, 2 front runners and 2 strong finishing types, Indian Affair would need to bounceback to form to win this but has won unexpectedly before so cant be written off completely, VERY HONEST 7/2 is best drawn of the front runners and its dropped in class in this race and if it can repeat its Kempton time on this different surface it could lead all the way, theres very little between Carpet Time and SANTAFIORA 4/1 who could both be trying to stay on at the finish, the former may need to be the luckier being drawn in stall 11 with fast starters berthed either side of it which mau mean the latter gets a clear run from stall 1 and getting the control of the rails just behind the leaders, betting wise I will be backing both selections to cover both angles but not happy being on the first two in the betting I can only hope they drift in the market, but very unlikely.

Santafiora 6/1 1st
Very Honest 7/2 3rd

1:25 Lingfield Racing Tips (12th January)

LINGFIELD 1.25 

This is a strange looking race, half the field are known to set the pace so it could be fast and furious and in such a small field the draw won't be of much importance. Reflektor has good trainer/jockey stats, 24%+22% but my 6th best speed figure-wise, Desert Doctor’s trainer has a good 23% win record and decent jockeys stats but only 5th top rated, Zac Brown comes out 4th best on my speed figures, Gorgeous Noora comes out 3rd best using a 2017 time and has a good 24%+22% trainer/jockey stats, Alsvinder is 2nd top rated but may find the trip a bit taxing if there's a fast early pace and that looks quite likely here, top spot on my own speed figures goes to MERHOOB 10/3 who’s jockey has a 3-12 strike rate for the stable and could possibly lead all the way.  

Merhoob 9/4 2nd 

NEWCASTLE 6.30 

A big problem with this race is the lack of early paced types, I've got joint 3rd top rated horses in Athollblair Boy and Kommander Kirkup who both like to track the leader/s AVENUE OF STARS 4/1 is my 2nd top rated and the trainer has a 16% win rate here and the jockey is 2-5 for the stable so it looks as though they are expecting a big run in this race but I do have LUCKY LODGE 4/1 rated higher and all 4 mentioned like to track the leaders so I'm hoping something sets a decent early pace so its a true run affair.

Avenue Of Stars 4/1 3rd 
Lucky Lodge 4/1 Unp
