Andrew was on target with KING OF THE SOUTH on Saturday and has three selections for Sunday December 5th. Follow his tips on horse racing betting sites throughout the upcoming and hectic festive fixture list, and all year round:


GENTLEMAN AT ARMS (system – Stuart Edmunds stable switchers)

New recruits from other yards often do well at the first time of asking for Stuart Edmunds, winning nine of their 44 starts for a profit of £14.75 to a 1 level stake at SP. Last week I tipped Krypton Gold on this angle, who ran second at Leicester after being back from 18-1 into 7-1. GENTLEMAN AT ARMS, a 1m6f winner on the Flat at Nottingham in the summer for Harry Dunlop, looks another interesting recruit to hurdles.


KELSO 12.33

OVERCOURT (system – Sandy Thomson winter runners)

Sandy Thomson has a fine record in the depths of winter, scoring with 87 of his 508 runners from November to February (17.1% strike-rate) for a profit of £241.00 to a £1 level stake at SP. Hill Sixteen went close for the yard in the big race at Aintree yesterday and perhaps OVERCOURT, runner-up at 12-1 at Sedgefield on his reappearance last season, can go one better this term.


KELSO 1.35

TORIGNI (system – Harry Whittington, young French-bred chasers)

Sandy Thomson has another runner in this novices’ handicap chase but, at a bigger price, I prefer the claims of Harry Whittington’s TORIGNI. I tipped him last time when a gambled-on (16-5 from 8-1) third at Market Rasen, where he probably did well to finish so close after losing a shoe and jumping moderately. The cheekpieces go on and he’s worth another chance. His trainer usually does well with his young French-bred chasers (aged four, five or six), scoring with 16 of the 41 qualifiers (39%) for a profit of £19.51.
