Andrew found Bangor winner HART OF STEEL on Thursday and has three picks for Friday January 14th. Follow his tips all year round on horse racing betting sites:


HIT THE ROCKS (system – sire Fast Company, hurdlers on good to softer or softer going)

Progeny of Fast Company are 29 from 208 on over hurdles on slow ground for a profit of £37.80 to a £1 level stake at SP. HIT THE ROCKS, trained by in-form Gary Moore, is clearly no star but might prove capable of running a good race back from a break with underfoot conditions to suit.



NEFARIOUS (system – Simon Dow, Lingfield handicaps in January)

Since the beginning of 2019, Simon Dow is eight from 43 in Lingfield handicaps during the month of January for a profit of £27.33 to a £1 level stake at SP. NEFARIOUS shaped as though a return to today’s 7f trip were needed when keeping on into a 22-1 fourth at Kempton last time and he won his sole previous January outing.



EMERALD LADY (system – sire Garswood on Tapeta, 3yo+)

Non-juvenile pogeny of the sire Garswood are 11 from 90 on Tapeta for a profit of £36.13 to the usual £1 stake. EMERALD LADY was unlucky in running when a close-up fifth over course and distance on her final two-year-old outing and should have more to offer this year.
