Friday’s Daily Double

Chris Loader combines his best two bets into his daily double, covering two races on the all-weather at Newcastle on Friday 31st January.

There was a small profit to be made from our daily double for Racing Tips on Thursday as the second leg was a winner. The first selection was a non runner and would have been a declared void. Therefore it was a profitable day.

I’m hoping today we can build on that promising effort with both picks coming on the All-Weather at Newcastle. Best odds available here with William Hill.

4.15 Newcastle – Battle Of Marathon

Battle of Marathon has found some resurgent form this winter and has a good opportunity here. He’s a horse who likes to be played late the and track at Newcastle is likely to suit. Furthermore the eight-year-old is still well handicapped having previously being rated in the 100s. He’s clearly not anywhere close to that level but he’s shown he’s very competitive. If he gets a strong pace I suspect him to go very close.

6.45 Newcastle – Oriental Lilly

This daughter of Orientor has been running well in her recent outings and has suggested that going up in trip to seven furlongs could suit. On her last start she finished a running on fourth where the form has already been boosted by Hassad winning at Kempton. Moreover she’s got a good record on the all weather being from 5-19 starts. I think she’s a lively player under the floodlights at Gosforth Park and looks the ideal final leg to my daily double.
