2.40 Catterick, Tuesday, October 31

In the Book Now For New Year’s Day Handicap (2.40) at Catterick on Tuesday, Ingleby Hollow returned to form, in a first-time tongue tie, over 1 mile 6 furlongs at Redcar 11 days ago and remains well treated on the pick of his form last season. David O’Meara’s 5-year-old won off today’s mark of 67 at Ayr last July and followed up at Thirsk ten days later off a mark of 73 so, from a handicapping perspective, his chance is there for all to see. It’s fair to say that the Beat Hollow gelding isn’t a prolific winner, but he does have winning form over 2 miles, and on soft ground, under Daniel Tudhope, so he must have a decent chance of following up in another run-of-the-mill handicap. He was notably ridden with much more restraint at Redcar than had previously been the case and, if that’s the key to him, a 4lb rise in the weights is hardly prohibitive. Despite his moderate wins-to-runs ratio, he looks a potential ‘good thing’ at today’s weights.

Selection: Catterick 2.40 Ingleby Hollow to win 8/1

3.35 Nottingham, Wednesday, October 18

The Kier Property Handicap (3.35) at Nottingham on Wednesday is a competitive heat for the grade, but may provide Indian Chief with the opportunity to make amends for a luckless run over course and distance last week.

Rebecca Bastiman’s 7-year-old was only fifth of 10, beaten 2¼ lengths, on that occasion, but was galloping all over the opposition in the final three furlongs, only to be left with nowhere to go, and finished hard on the steel. A week previously, the Montjeu gelding had suffered an interrupted passage when failing by just a short head to overhaul Compton Mill over course and distance – with the reliable yardstick Silver Ghost back in third – and, on 1lb better terms, has every chance of reversing the form.

Indian Chief has been raised 3lb for his most recent effort but, granted that he almost certainly would have won with a clear run, he looks attractively handicapped. He’s done all his winning on soft, or good to soft, going and is reunited with Daniel Tudhope, who won on him at Hamilton in September, so he looks sure to be popular.

Selection: Nottingham 3.35 Indian Chief to win 10/1

3.15 Brighton, Tuesday, October 10

In the Beattie-Farrance Nursery Handicap (3.15) on Brighton on Tuesday, Lady Godiva has yet to trouble the judge in three starts, but ran her best race so far when fourth of 10, beaten 2¼ lengths, in a fillies’ maiden over 6 furlongs at the East Sussex track last month. That form has yet to be fully tested, but the third, Princess Harley, was subsequently beaten, but not disgraced, by two promising types in a better race at Newmarket. The first and second in the Brighton race, Wear It Well and Daybreak, are officially rated 77 and 83, respectively, so Lady Godiva doesn’t look overburdened off an opening handicap mark of 72. Her pedigree suggests that stepping back up to 7 furlongs is in her favour and Richard Hannon has a healthy 15-53 (28%) strike rate with his juveniles at Brighton since taking over from his father, so she looks a decent bet to make her handicap debut a winning one.

Selection: Brighton 3.15 Lady Godiva to win  10-1

Horse Racing Tips

Horse racing has been around for a very long time, powered by the punters desire for a quick win and a lifestyle of celebration. Well, a quick win in most cases and it can become a desire to be victorious at the races.
Winning is always nice and many a person can develop a taste for it. Indeed, it’s a trait that can be passed on to siblings and family generations follow in their forefather’s footsteps and travel to racecourses that scour the great English and Irish countryside.

Where to find a tip?

It’s a common term; “tip”, especially when heading out for the day at the races. Many a hardened gambler will often give his nose a tap, when you mention this word. Try it, they may even offer you some insight, though be wary they could also mislead you with their information. This help them get a better price see, well, in their heads it will.
So, where can you find a decent tip? Don’t worry, back alleys don’t really abound these days and the long mac’d, woodbine smoking man, donned with flat cap is still stuck in the 1950s.
All you need these days is a good internet connection. If you’re web savvy you’ll soon find yourself drowning in tips, from self-proclaimed horse whisperers to people who have the winning, mathematical formula that, not only predicts horse racing outcomes, but could take us to the moon. A good source of daily horse racing tip actions come from the guys at TheWinners Enclosure, just follow the link for more daily horse racing tips and insights.

What goes into the making of a tip?

Well, you know what a tip is but how is the judgement call made, what’s the formula to making a tip?
The best tips are the ones where the horse has big odds, these guarantee the biggest returns see. But, why would anyone tip a horse with huge odds? Usually, they won’t but every now and then a horse may appear where a bit of inside information could’ve been leaked. For example, so one notices the owner of a particular horse throws their maximum bet on it. How this information is derived is beyond us but visitor courses and now and then you may over hear a conversation that suggests this has occurred.
Use this information wisely, it may sometimes be correct, but this doesn’t mean it’ll win, though crazier things have happened…

What do the bookie tipsters consider when putting a tip together?
The more uniformed approach involves looking at a horse and checking out the runners. Is there a favourite who’s romped home in their last few outings? Probably. Have any others in the line-up done anything similar? Possibly, but if not you may find yourself leaning toward the favourite.
Slightly more advanced insights will involve conditions, has the favourite won on a dry field before, does he like wet conditions, what sort of condition is he in now? These are more immediate factors but can strongly influence the horse’s performance.
The horse’s mark is also a serious condition; a horse’s condition is usually always being monitored and the higher the mark the better the horse ranks. The marks that refer to a horse’s score are judged differently, dependant on the country the horse comes from. Just beware of the mark, you can find these online.

Is there such a thing as a one-horse race?

A punter will tell you yes, but it’s in their interest too. They love going to the races and having a bet. They’ll not say otherwise, will they?
It’s rare that a horse with low odds against a field of horses who don’t come near to it in the odds stakes, fails to win the race. So, an intelligent answer could be yes, but it’s finding that race these days that can be tricky. Even if you do there’s always a slight chance something profound may happen and the horse doesn’t win.
Good luck with your horse bets, but remember; a lot of thought has gone into those odds and a tip may just be as good as a well calculated prediction.
