Andrew found 11-2 Lingfield scorer DONYA on Saturday and heads to Kelso and Southwell for his two recommended bets on Sunday January 16th. Follow his tips all year round on horse racing betting sites:

KELSO 1.05

INTO OVERDRIVE (system – Mark Walford, Hurdles to fences switch)

Mark Walford has a fine record with chasers who ran over hurdles last time out, scoring with 13 of the 47 qualifiers (27.7% strike-rate) for a profit of £21.88 to a £1 level stake at SP. INTO OVERDRIVE, a 40-1 winner over hurdles at Carlisle last spring, bumped into a couple of progressive types when a 14-1 third of ten at Wetherby last time and can make a winning start over fences.



BRONZE RIVER (system – Newcastle to Southwell switch, ridden patiently last time)

Like on Newcastle’s Tapeta, patient tactics have held sway so far on the new surface at Southwell. Simply backing any horse given a patient ride at Newcastle last time, who was now switching to Southwell’s Tapeta surface, would have found seven winners from 57 bets for a profit of £22.00. Those ridden by jockeys who could claim an allowance of at least 3lb had a six from 15 record for a profit of £30.00. BRONZE RIVER drops to Class 6 level for the first time since his Redcar win in October and will hopefully encounter a strong early pace.
