Horse Racing Betting Tips for Wednesday January 5th


DARK SIDE PRINCE keeps winning despite being taken on for the lead and was hugely impressive when completing his hat-trick over course and distance last time. Not only did he face strong pace pressure, but he was hemmed in against the inside rail where the surface was slowest. Winless from six starts on turf, Jessica Macey’s five-year-old has all-weather figures in handicap company of 2317211111 (6-10), improving to 1111 (4-4) on Tapeta or Polytrack. He could prove hard to pass. Back in the Spreadex fixed odds market.

.Recommendation: Back DARK SIDE PRINCE in Wolverhampton 1.25



Sean Bowen rides Ffos Las especially well, scoring on 55 of his 278 mounts (19.8% strike-rate). We would have made a small loss by backing them all, though had we only sided with the hurdlers and chasers who’d run within the past eight weeks we’d have found 46 winners from 183 bets (25.1%) for a profit of £30.99. He has four mounts today – two of whom won well over course and distance last time, DOWNTOWN GETAWAY (2.20) and FAIRLAWN FLYER (3.25) – and he looks worth a buy in the Spreadex FFOS LAS JOCKEYS market.

.Recommendation: Buy SEAN BOWEN in FFOS LAS JOCKEYS



With the David Pipe yard relatively quiet and the ground softer than preferred, it might be worth taking on NEW AGE DAWNING in this 2m5f novices’ limited handicap chase. Progeny of Stowaway often struggle on desperate ground and he’s been beaten in all three starts on soft or heavy going if we include his point-to-point run. Sell in the Spreadex 50-25-10 market.

Recommendation: Oppose NEW AGE DAWNING in Ffos Las 2.20
