Daily Racing Tips: 29/01/2020
Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips for racing at Kempton and Leicester on 29/01/2020.
Race 1: WIN O’CLOCK
Trainer: Roger Charlton – Jockey: Adam McNamara
Although King Of Arms will be a popular order in this opening maiden I expect WIN O’CLOCK to give him plenty to think about. The selection skipped a good opportunity last week for this after shaping with eye-catching promise on his seasonal return at Chelmsford.
Race 3: NORMAL NORMAN
Trainer: John Ryan – Jockey: Darragh Keenan
NORMAL NORMAN troubled the judge on his return to action at Lingfield, a run that should have put the cutting edge on this lightly raced individual. He now drops back to a mile, but with two that like to bowl along in opposition, he will hopefully have a good pace to aim at.
Race 7: GUNMAKER
Trainer: Ruth Carr – Jockey: James Sullivan
As he is a horse that usually likes to challenge from off the pace GUNMAKER may be able to overcome a wretched draw widest in this 14-runner field. He looked all over the winner at Newcastle last week when conversely he was ridden closer to the pace, only to be grabbed on the post by Atwaar. That was the third time in as many starts this year that he’d finished in the money.
Race 2: PISTOL WHIPPED
Trainer: Nicky Henderson – Jockey: Jerry McGrath
Course and distance scorer PISTOL WHIPPED had multiple entries but his trainer looks to have chosen right targeting this novices’ limited handicap chase. The 6yo survived a market drift when mastering Rocco last month and remains a horse with scope for plenty of improvement.c
Race 4: MIAH GRACE
Trainer: Jedd O’Keeffe – Jockey: Joe Colliver
Having done everything expected of her with two wins and a second in as many starts this season, MIAH GRACE now heads along the handicap route with much to recommend her. She’s enjoyed a nice break since grittily scoring in deep ground at Hexham, will enjoy this track with its long home straight and should prove hard to beat.
Race 5: PRAIRIE TOWN
Trainer: Tony Carroll – Jockey: Lee Edwards
There is a slight risk with PRAIRIE TOWN as the 9yo proved difficult at the start here last month, but when getting into a rhythm always looked the winner. His jockey gave him plenty of time to warm to the task and the combination were in total command with two to jump. Given similar patient handling the gelding can follow-up.
