Horse Racing Betting Tips for Monday January 17th


Fakenham is a sharp track but those with suspect stamina are often found out, as the pace is usually relentless. This can exaggerate winning distances and if we throw small fields of usually modest horses and soft ground into the mix, a buy of winning distances could be warranted. Aggregate WINNING DISTANCES came in at 41.25 on New Year’s Day, 58.75 at the December meeting and 55.25 at the November fixture. Spreadex have set the market at 35-39.

Watch the Fakenham action throughout Monday afternoon by using live horse racing streaming sites such as Spreadex.

Recommendation: Buy WINNING DISTANCES at Fakenham


TINY TANTRUM heads the market for this staying handicap hurdle after running second over course and distance last time but may have been flattered. It was a big advantage to race wide that day and he stayed off the rail throughout. He remains a maiden after seven starts and his six rivals have all won at least once in their careers. Spreadex have him at 23-26 in their 50-25-10 market and he rates a sell. Fixed odds punters may prefer to side with AVITHOS – she thrives at this time of year and was an impressive winner on her sole course outing. At the time of writing she was a 5-1 shot with Spreadex.

Recommendation: Oppose TINY TANTRUM in Fakenham 2.50


PATSY FAGAN was a rare low-drawn winner over 6f at Southwell last time and can follow up. Connor Murtagh managed to steer him out of the ‘swamp’ on the inside rail from a relatively early stage but he still wasn’t best positioned and he could have more to offer. His record in 6f handicaps on left-handed tracks, turf or all-weather, stands at 22110121 (4-8) suggesting he’ll be difficult to keep out of the first two places.

Recommendation: Back PATSY FAGAN in Wolverhampton 5.30
