Andrew starts the new week with two bets at Punchestown on Monday January 31st. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites:


COPPER NATION (system – oppose Wille Mullins hurdlers in first-time hoods)

TAKE TEA is trading at around 6-4 for this 2m4f maiden hurdle but wears a hood for the first time which is a negative angle where Willie Mullins-trained hurdlers are concerned. Since the beginning of 2015, just ten of the 80 qualifiers have won for a loss of £35.58 to a £1 level stake at SP (expected winners = 16.61). COPPER NATION, the likely pace angle on a track that favours frontrunners, is a viable alternative at around the 8-1 mark.



GENI DE LA COUR (system – oppose Wille Mullins hurdlers in first-time hoods)

Mullins also saddles another short-priced favourite this maiden hurdle in the shape of CLASSIC GETAWAY. He too is no good thing despite quotes of 2-5 and I’d rather have an each-way bet on GENI DE LA COUR. He ran with promise at Tramore on New Year’s Day on his jumps/stable debut after a long absence and the better ground could suit.
