Andrew heads to Haydock, Lingfield and Wolverhampton for his five selections on Saturday January 22nd. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites:


TOTALLY CHARMING (system – badly drawn at Southwell last time out)

It’s not been easy to win from low draws on the round course (6f+) at Southwell since the Tapeta surface was introduced, especially in handicaps of 8+ runners. Horses drawn 1, 2 or 3 in those races often make good bets next time, regardless of where they finished at Southwell. They’ve won 12 of their 65 starts for a profit of £18.20 to a £1 level stake at SP. This angle threw up winners Custard The Dragon and Asadjumeirah yesterday and TOTALLY CHARMING, runner-up from stall 2 at Southwell last time, can go one better, The step back up to 1m2f will suit.



THE LAST DAY (system – fresh)

THE LAST DAY has tasted defeat at relatively short odds (7-4, 11-4, 3-1 and 9-2) every time he’s been returned to the track quickly (within six weeks of a previous run). However, since his racecourse debut his record after a longer layoff reads 191141F1156 (5-10) for a profit of £21.32 to a £1 level stake. He disappointed in both starts last term but is only 1lb higher than when bolting up at Aintree on his reappearance in the 2019/2020 season and, at around 14-1, is worth chancing to modest stakes.



RADETSKY (system – Jane Chapple-Hyam, last time out winners)

Since the beginning of 2015, Jane Chapple-Hyam has a 28 from 115 record with last time out winners (24.3% strike-rate) for a profit of £68.31 to a £1 level stake at SP. RADETSKY won very comfortably over course and distance last time, despite failing to settle, and can follow up.



RED EVELYN (system – Garswood 4yos)

RED EVELYN finished a solid 22-1 fourth of 12 at Lingfield last Saturday and looks a potential improver now racing on Tapeta for the first time. progeny of the sire Garswood tend to improve with age and had we simply bet all the four-year-olds on the Flat (turf or all-weather) we’d have won 31 of our 182 bets (17%) and made a profit of £114.25.



FRISTEL (system – Mark Loughnane, first run in an all-weather handicap)

Backing Mark Loughnane runners when they have their first crack at an all-weather handicap would have returned a profit of £89.83 to a £1 level stale at SP and FRISTEL, who has caught the eye over shorter trips here the last twice, looks a likely improver now that he switches from novice company.
