Horse Racing Tips, Predictions & Best Bets – 22/01

MansionBet - Horse Racing Best Bets

A brand-new week of racing starts today and with a fresh slate to enjoy, there are some excellent options for online horse racing betting fans to peruse. Below, we’ve brought you some more well-searched picks from the day’s events with a particular focus on the runs at Kempton, Newcastle and Warwick, where runners with value leap off the page.

Best Tip #1: Cue’s Beau – Kempton 3.00

Cue’s Beau impressed with a sturdy record last spring and she should turn more heads by the time we hit the afternoon at Kempton.  While Cloud Cover is a name to be feared in this 7f Handicap Flat, Cue’s Beau could surprise under Saffie Osborne.

Cue’s Beau was a front-two finisher in four successive races last spring and her reemergence and she ran clear of a competitive pack at Nottingham in her last surge off a starting price of 6/4. With only three to beat this time, Cue’s Beau looks a better pick than favourite Cloud Cover and she may be the better handicapped of the pair.

Best Tip #2:  Dire Wolf – Newcastle 6.00

Dire Wolf landed a victory by a little over a length at Lingfield a week ago, though that narrow winning margin didn’t do her justice and she looked a cut above the field. Dire Wolf’s dominance earned her a 6lb penalty to bear at Newcastle, however, she is strong enough to shoulder the extra burden.

Dire Wolf, who is the daughter of John Gosden’s Showcasing, should enjoy the drop in distance between Lingfield and Newcastle, and she should go again. Threats could be offered by Good Morning Alex and Likleman, with the former seeing a price decrease in the early market movement, however, Dire Wolf has the potential to leave both trailing.

Best Roughie: Feivel – Warwick 3:05

A blinkered Feivel won well over a stretched 2m5f at Exeter in a superb New Year’s Day run and with headgear on again at Warwick, another against the odds triumph could be workable. The 5b increase calls for a smidgin of caution, especially with the strong Black Kalinisi in opposition, despite his ordinary efforts over the fences at Chepstow on December 9th.

With Top Cloud and Edison Kent both non-runners, Feivel’s task becomes all the more achievable, and he showcased grit in an eight-strong field at Exter on January 1st.  Seefin remains the market favourite on betting apps, which is no shock given the 7-year-old’s solid recent record, however, Feivel appeals at a much weightier price in the 3:05.

Stats and Insights

  • Kempton is an all-Weather venue made up of two separate courses (inner & outer), and across the last five seasons, John Gosden has been one of the most dominant trainers on the tracks.
  • Newcastle operates with a Tapeta surface, which offers favourable footing for most horses. It’s very much a galloping track with plenty of getting, so coming from the back of the pack isn’t a problem. Smart punters will allow for that in their selections.
  • The left-handed track at Warwick can be a bit of a bottleneck at times and the movement of the run can often suit the more agile horses. The run-in to the post is also short, so your runner will need to be in the mix when the leaders hit it.
