Best bets for the horse racing New Years Day 2023

Happy New Year!

Its a late update from me today, part hangover, part cold. The best for New Years Day follow. Cheltenham takes centre stage. 

For the 2m4f Grade Two Paddy Power Novices' Chase (The Dipper) I am on the jolly.  Impressive in both his Chase starts to date Thunder Rock could be a chaser to keep on side of and can take this on his way to bigger targets. I have the 13-8 BPG. 

Happygolucky is one I have tipped before, and has won for me, and should be backed in the 2m4f Paddy Power New Year's Day Handicap Chase. He missed last season completely but produced enough on his comeback run, when third in last month's Rehearsal, to suggest he has retained his talent. I am on each-way at 12's. 

I Like To Move It was a decent Novice Hurdler last season and showed he is still on the upgrade when impressively winning the Greatwood Hurdle over Two-Mile here on his reappearance in last month. I think he will stay the 2m4f of the Grade Two Careers At Relkeel Hurdle and have backed him at the 7-2 BPG this morning. 

Be lucky
