Best bet for the horseracing Tuesday 16th January 2024

There will be no National Hunt racing in Britain on Tuesday the fixtures at Chepstow and Plumpton both abandoned due to frozen ground. I do fancy one on the All-Weather up at Newcastle - it's a sure bet it will be cold up there!

Best bet for the horseracing at Newcastle

The race I have had a go in is the lucky last the 5f Always Gamble Responsibly With BetUK Handicap at 7.30. Bernie The Bear was going in the right direction last season, in truth the only way was up from a mark of 45 at one point in his career, and he can make a wining stable debut for Linda Perratt in this. Dropping back to the minimum here he is up 2lb for his win over six at Wolverhampton before Christmas but Tommie Jakes takes 7lb off. The young claimer has been amongst the winners already this season and the yard is in decent enough form. I think he can blast out and make every yard making this a test over the stiff straight five here and I am on at 7-2.

Be lucky
