Andrew found another winner on Wednesday (Sharjah) as well as enjoying a place return from Dubai Devils. He has three selections for Thursday December 30th. Follow his tips on horse racing betting sites throughout the hectic festive fixture list, and all year round:


FARRANTS WAY (system – Venetia Williams, first run after a wind operation, fresh)

FARRANTS WAY was a big eyecatcher on his reappearance at Sandown last December, finishing third despite racing on the inside rail where the ground was clearly slowest. He proved expensive to follow in three subsequent starts but has undergone wind surgery since we last saw him, and first-time out could be when to catch him. Venetia Williams has an eight from 18 record with her fist-time wind op horses who are running in handicaps after a break of at least 150 days for a profit of £60.50 to a £1 level stake at SP.



LINCOLN DREAM (system – Kodi Bear progeny at Wolverhampton)

Progeny of the sire Kodi Bear have an 11 from 48 record on Wolverhampton’s Tapeta surface for a profit of £66.83 to a £1 level stake at SP. Thirteen of the beaten horses finished second or third (including 22-1, 18-1 and 16-1) and an each-way bet on Richard Fahey’s LINCOLN DREAM could pay dividends. She found 7f too far at Newcastle last time but had run respectably over today’s 6f trip at the same venue on her all-weather debut, finishing an 11-1 fifth of 13 after meeting trouble.



BOBBA TEE (system – Rail Link progeny, 1m4f+ on the all-weather)

Progeny of Rail Link have a useful record on the all-weather when given a trip of at last 1m4f, landing 21 of their 143 starts for a huge profit of £164.90 to a £1 level stake at SP. BOBBA TEE has already contributed with wins at 28-1 and 6-1 and can notch another success here.
