Horse Racing Tips Today | Saturday January 1

Today’s tips are in Cheltenham and Musselburgh.

There are five bets for today’s races at Musselburgh and Cheltenham, and I hope 2022 starts off better than 2021 has ended!

Musselburgh tip

13:40 – 2m4f Betway Hair Of The Dog Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)

GEROMINO (NAP – winning bet 1 point to 3/1) can provide another Musselburgh winner for top trainer Donald McCain and Edinburgh’s top track jockey Brian Hughes. Hughes gets back on board the fit six-year-old, who comes here after three straight wins in October-November and a close second on his last visit three weeks ago. This latest race came in an upper class at Doncaster and saw him stand out from the rest of the field and just ¾ length behind favorite Tommy’s Oscar, who won his third Class 2 competition of the year. Connections wouldn’t want the ground to loosen up much for their progressive hurdler (his best form is good / good to soft), but another big run is expected. The choice of the stoner, sent on the long journey north from the Fergal O’Brien shipyard, is the greatest danger.

Tips for Cheltenham

14:00 – 2m4½f New Years Paddy Power Handicap Chase (3rd year)

Perhaps the most exciting runner in the roster is FUNAMBULE SIVOLA (winning bet 1 point at 7/1), who chased Shishkin home at Aintree in April and recently returned to action with a second place finish in the Category 2 Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon. As a result, he will have to challenge the highest weight to win this competitive handicap, but he holds a Category 1 entry and looks like a very classy prospect. This will be his first visit to Cheltenham, but provided he adapts to it, he is set to compete in a great race under the guidance of regular jockey Charlie Deutsch.

Things didn’t quite go as planned SIMPLY THE BETTS (bet winning 1 point at 10/1) since switching to Paul Nicholls, but it would be a surprise if his new coach couldn’t win soon. He is a double winner on the course and the distance today and should be well adapted by the retreat of the course after finding 3m1f too far away at Aintree last time around. The soft ground is ideal, he is not handicapped on 153 and Harry Cobden takes over in the saddle.

14:35 – 3m Paddy Power Handicap Hurdle (Class 2)

TAMAR BRIDGE (winning bet 1 point at 11/2) had a strong start to his career and followed up his bumper victory with a novice hurdles success at Ayr in March before a 13-length victory at Wetherby in his seasonal reappearance in October. Olly Murphy’s unexposed hurdler then made his class 2 handicap debut at Aintree in December and only increased 6 pounds for that. After holding up well after two and a half miles, he should relish the climb and will have no problem with the conditions underfoot as he has already won twice on the proving ground. It looks like a good opportunity for him to take his record to 4-5 over hurdles.

The one who could exceed his great chances is PLACE DES DAUPHIN (winning bet of 0.5 point at 25/1), who comes here in form with recent figures of 1221. He seems to have enjoyed returning to hurdles and his last success came in a Class 2 at Newbury in November. He weighs 5 pounds heavier today, but three miles on loose soil seems to be his optimum. Trainer Philip Hobbs has his riders in good shape and David Maxwell (claiming 3lbs) knows the horse well.
