Lease Lend (pictured, blue and yellow silks) looks to have a great chance of winning today at a current best price of 6/1 (7.00) with Bet365. Find out why, as well as discovering what else we fancy today, by reading the rest of our free horse racing tips for Saturday February 2nd!
In the 2.20 at Lingfield, Secret Millionaire is the first of Saturday’s horse racing tips. Tony Carroll’s six year old may currently be the favourite at odds of 11/4 (3.75) with BetVictor, but the selection fully justifies that tag and the price could look big by the end of the race. From his four runs at the track, the gelding has form figures of 1412 and although all of those efforts came at the minimum trip, past form suggests that he’ll cope well with six furlongs. He comes into today’s race having been beaten by a nose last time out, suggesting that a rise of 6lbs for his win two starts ago will not be an issue.
Tim Easterby’s Lease Lend is a pretty consistent horse and he gets the vote as the second of our horse racing tips for Saturday February 2nd, in the 3.55 at Wetherby. The ten year old will relish today’s softer ground and comes into the race off the back of two runner-up finishes at the course. He was behind today’s favourite last time out, but re-opposes today on better terms in the weights. The selection has also won at the course before, off a mark of just 1lb lower than today (albeit over a shorter trip) and he looks like a good value selection at a current best price of 6/1 (7.00) with Bet365.
Our longshot Each-Way tip for Saturday February 2nd is Fentara, currently a massive looking 14/1 (15.00) with Bet365 to win the 3.20 at Wetherby. There are just seven runners penciled in for this race, which usually dissuades me from an Each-Way bet, but I can’t resist the Tim Walford trained mare at this price. The eight year old won a weaker race by a country mile last time out and although today represents a big jump in class, she’s in the type of form that suggests she can cope. She’s proven over this kind of trip and she will absolutely love the ground, unlike some of her rivals. There may be one or two amongst the line up that have an eye on Cheltenham, but that means that they won’t be given too hard a race. I fancy Fentara to spring a surprise at a big price.
