Wednesday the 13th of January sees racing action coming from Chelmsford, Kempton and Taunton with Newcastle’s card abandoned due to waterlogging.We have been in good form of late so let’s hope we can find some more winners for you today.
The first horse I like this afternoon is MONEY TEAM (nap) 2.25 at Chelmsford. From the stable of T D BArron this horse finished third here two starts back before striking last time out over course and distance just two weeks ago. The manner of his victory that day suggests he has lots of improvement in him and although he carries a 6 lb penalty for his latest success he will be very difficult to beat in this contest with Philip Making the man on board.
The next horse I like is CALTRA COLEEN (nb) 1.55 at Chelmsford. From the stable of Gay Kelleway this horse has been a bit out of sorts of late, however his last run was eye catching as he was left poorly placed and stayed on steadily to finish in fifth here at Chelmsford. He has been tumbling down the weights recently and he is on a decent mark today to go very close. Provided he’s ridden more prominently today I expect this horse to be right in the mix with claimer Jane Elliot taking the ride.
The other horse I like is PULL THE CORD 3.10 at Taunton. From the Philip Hobbs stable this horse was an emphatic winner last time out at Exeter and he looked like a horse to follow again that day. The ground was heavy that day and it will be here again which will suit and he likes it around here as he won this very same race last year of a lower mark. Although he has crept up the weights I expect him to be able to burden it to victory today. Richard Johnson is the man in the saddle and he will be very tough to beat.
Good luck everyone.
