Horse Racing Betting Tips for Saturday January 29th


BRYONY FROST has a good book of rides at Doncaster today, with ROQUE IT of particular interest in the 1.00. He bombed out at Wincanton last time but an aggressive ride in first-time cheekpieces could be just the ticket. MIRANDA, who is five from six in mares’ only races over jumps, holds obviously claims in the 2.10 and FAME AND FUN (3.55) might appreciate the switch to a left-handed track after disappointing when the money was down on his debut at right-handed Wincanton. GRAND SANCY’s (3.20) chance is less obvious though he too will appreciate going left-handed after jumping out to his left at right-handed Ascot last time. Buy at 37 with Spreadex.

Recommendation: Buy BRYONY FROST in Doncaster Jockeys



Cheltenham’s opener – a handicap hurdle over the 2m1f trip – has been dominated by young, lightly-weighted horses. Nine of the last ten winners carried 10-13 or less and were aged seven or younger. Those who carried 11-00 or more were one from 44 and it might be worth opposing the top eight in the weights today. Only three horses qualify on the age/weight stats – SEVERANCE, BYZANTINE EMPIRE and LIVELY CITIZEN, numbers 10, 11 and 12 on the racecard. A buy of the ‘DOUBLE NUMBER OF WINNER’ market with Spreadex (set at 12.5-14) could be warranted.

Stay tuned to Saturday’s Cheltenham action by using live horse racing streaming sites such as Spreadex.

Recommendation: Buy ‘DOUBLE NUMBER OF WINNER’ in Cheltenham 12.15


SIMPLY THE BETTS has to prove his stamina, but he loves Cheltenham’s New Course and he’s worth chancing in the Cotswold Chase. His record here reads 1st, 1st and 2nd of 16 from just three runs and that last-time-out second was a fine effort given that he fared best of the prominent racers in a strong-run contest. Buy at 24 with Spreadex in the 50-25-10 race market or back him at 11-4 in the fixed odds market.

Recommendation: Back SIMPLY THE BETTS in Cheltenham 2.30
