It’s Valentine’s Day! You’ll just love our free horse racing tips for February 14th, including a huge 20/1 (21.00) outsider courtesy of Bet365, as well as a couple of stronger fancies from the All Weather at Kempton. Don’t forget to spend your winnings on the missus though…
The first of our horse racing tips for Thursday February 14th is Bussa in the 5.30 at Kempton, currently rated a 6/1 (7.00) chance with BoyleSports. The five year old bay is really consistent and has finished in the front two on each of his last seven starts, including a course and distance success. He’s turned out quickly under a penalty for winning at Wolverhampton last week, but the 5lb claimer in the saddle will cancel most of that out and I’m confident of another good effort today, at a healthy price.
Paul Webber’s Rysbrack also runs at Kempton, in the 7.30 race, and he is the next of our horse racing tips for February 14th. The seven year old gelding won a “jumper’s bumper” well enough on the All Weather last time out, confirming that he’s in good heart and when last seen running on the level, he was finishing third to a horse who completed a hat trick that day and is now rated 81 on the All Weather. He’s clearly capable of winning a race of this type and the current price of 11/2 (6.50) with Ladbrokes looks tempting.
Our Each-Way longshot tip for Thursday February 14th is Sam Lord, a 20/1 (21.00) shot with Bet365 to win the 3.40 at Kelso. That is much too big based on his effort three runs back, when he landed a Boxing Day race at Sedgefield on heavy ground off just 4lbs lower than today. He also won a race at the same venue earlier that month on soft ground, so today’s going is clearly going to work to his advantage. His only run at this venue was way back in 2009 and that yielded a place, over a trip that seems much too far for his liking. I won’t be at all surprised to see Coverholder win the race, but the price about James Moffat’s nine year old is simply too big to ignore. We’ll be happy enough with a place, but we might even get a Valentine’s Day treat.
