Horse Racing tips

It’s shaping up to be a fantastic Friday with plenty of races to attack with four meeting in Britain and two in Ireland. 

So check out Friday’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer.

HEAVEY (2.45 Fontwell, 3m2f handicap hurdle)

Did not take to fences on his only chase start last month, making plenty of mistakes before falling four out. Still looked to have plenty in the tank when coming down and he’s previously looked really progressive over hurdles, notably when winning in testing conditions at Exeter in November.

Return to smaller obstacles looks a good move and six of trainer Neil Mulholland’s last eight runners have finished in the first three so now could be the time to catch his horses.

INDIGO TIMES (3.00 Goodwood, 2m handicap)

Looks ready for the step up to two miles judged on the way he’s been finishing his races over shorter.

Was caught behind horses as the front-runners kicked clear at Wolverhampton last time so that run could be upgraded and improvement can be expected over this trip.

Trainer David Simcock is operating at a near 25 per cent strike-rate in the last fortnight and, while soft ground is an unknown, it could pay to side with this potential improver.

SECRET POTION (3.30 Goodwood, 5f handicap)

Well handicapped and is now 2lb below his last winning mark of 65, which came only last year. 

Showed enough in a few starts since lockdown to suggest he’s still capable of being competitive off this mark and he’s well drawn in stall nine.

Trainer Ron Harris has had a few horses run really well at big prices recently, which bodes well for a big run and the horse goes well on undulating tracks with wins at Bath and Chepstow to his name.

OWNEY MADDEN (4.50 Newmarket, 6f handicap)

A decent three-year-old sprint handicap can go the way of Owney Madden who receives a lot of weight from the two market principals.

Martyn Meade’s runner has run two decent races this season and is slipping back to a decent mark.

He did well against the pace bias at York last time to finish fourth and Meade has his string in fantastic form at the moment.
