Horse racing tipping expert, Andy Newton, gives you his free horse racing tips and best bets this Monday (17th Aug) across today’s fixtures.
Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Kempton Racing Tips –
2.55 – Kempton – May Queen has done little wrong recently, but Godolphin’s KHUSOOSY (Bet here at 15/8 with William Hill) catches the eye. Yes, the horse has not been out for 291 days but Paul Hanagan is an interesting jockey booking and h was an impressive winner when last seen winning here at the track last October.
BET NOW – KHUSOOSY
3.25 – Kempton – The boys in blue of Godolphin look to have another leading chance here – this time with VALKO (Bet here at 7/2 with 888Sport). The horse heads here as one of the most experienced in the field (3 runs) and his last two seconds were solid efforts. William Buick is a plus in the saddle and on breeding should be suited by this first run on the AW surface.
BET NOW – VALKO
Thirsk Racing Tips –
2.10 – Thirsk – We’ll take a chance on the unraced ALPINE DREAM (Bet here at 5/2 with Coral) here. William Haggas’ 2 year-old should be ready to go well at the first time of asking and the yard also boast an impressive 27% record here at the track. Richard Fahey’s Winter Hey Lane is another to note in the betting with that yard normally doing well in these races.
BET NOW – ALPINE DREAM
4.40 – Thirsk – Richard Fahey’s unexposed EUXTON (Bet here at 7/2 with Bet365) is the call here. This 3 year-old has only had four career runs so there should be a lot more to come, while the step up to 7f looks sure to suit.
BET NOW – EUXTON
Chelmsford Racing Tips –
7.25 – Chelmsford – MAFTOOL (Bet here at 11/4 with Paddy Power) is the highest-rated runner in the field and so on these terms should be a leading player here. The horse has been running in Group and Listed races recently so will find this company a lot more to his liking.
BET NOW – MAFTOOL
7.55 – Chelmsford – ATALAN (Bet here at 5/4 with Skybet) won well here three races back and wasn’t disgraced into second last time here behind the improver – Duke Street. Another step forward is needed by the Hughie Morrison yard love to have winners here and this looks like being another.
BET NOW – ATALAN
Windsor Racing Tips –
6.35 – Windsor – Wheat Sheaf will be popular, but we’ll take that horse on with FREE ONE (Bet here at 7/2 with Betfair). Jeremy Noseda has a decent 23% record at the moment and his horses are going well at the moment too, while the yard have also won his race twice in the past three seasons.
BET NOW – FREE ONE
7.05 – Windsor – Henry Candy won this race in 2014 so his Postbag is feared but we were impressed with the way BELLA LULU (Bet here at 2/1 with Ladbrokes) won her maiden last time out and there should be more to come from this Roger Varian-trained 3 year-old.
BET NOW – BELLA LULU
