Best bets for the horse racing Thursday 20th January 2022
I got it very wrong yesterday but I am sticking with the All-Weather racing on Thursday as I have one I fancy at Newcastle.
Best bet for the horse racing at Newcastle
The race of interest to me on Thursday is the 5f Betway Handicap at 5.30. If you ignore his last run, literally all went wrong from the off, Night On Earth had been putting together a decent little run of form late last year to begin his winter campaign including a track and trip victory. The four-year-old gelding gets in here off a mark of 85 and with Frederick Larson taking off a very handy 7lb he has a great chance to get back to winning ways. Ornate should set a good pace and that will suit just fine giving the selection something to aim at in the final furlong. Get on at 11-2. Melodic Charm went into the notebook after her comeback run at Wolverhampton last month but was disappointing at Southwell last time - I backed her! This is her first try over the minimum trip and she is best watched today as may find things happening a bit quickly.
