Horse Racing Betting Tips for Thursday January 6th


Frontrunners enjoy a huge advantage in handicap chases at Chepstow and, since racing resumed after lockdown, those who attempted to make all have a 20 from 57 record (35.1% strike-rate) for a profit of £96.36 to a £1 level stake at SP. Prominent racers weighed in with 24 winners from 165 runners (14.6% strike-rate, +£0.53 to a £1 stake) and hold-up horses had a shocking record, winning just nine times from 242 runners (3.7%, -£180.92). ROSE SEA HAS is no star but she does look the likeliest leader in this two-mile handicap chase and is a fair buy in the Spreadex 50-25-10 race market (at the time of writing her spread was set at 4-6). The others who are likely to be up with the pace are BILLINGSLEY and GINGEMBRE MENTHE. Rose Sea Has is number 6 on the racecard, Billingsley is number 8 and Gingembre Menthe is number 4, suggesting a buy of ‘DOUBLE NUMBER OF WINNER’ (set at 5.9-6.9) could be the way to side with the trio. Spreadex also offer a ‘RACE SQUARED NUMBER‘ market (set at 14-16), which is another way to side with the higher racecard numbers.

Watch Thursday’s action unfold by using live horse racing streaming sites such as Spreadex.

.Recommendation: Buy ‘DOUBLE NUMBER OF WINNER’ in Chepstow 2.50



ALMAAN was a huge eyecatcher over 7f here last time on his debut for Henry Spiller. Very weak in the betting, he was slowly away, switched wide and not given a hard time by Stevie Donohoe in a race won by a 4-1 stablemate. The step up in trip to 1m will suit (he was campaigned at up to 1m2f for Sir Michael Stoute) and he can be backed at 4-1 in the Spreadex fixed odds betting or bought in the 50-25-10 spread market.

.Recommendation: Back ALMAAN in Chelmsford 4.00
