Free daily horse racing selections for December 2019

Clerk of the Course

December 30th, 2019

Lingfield 12:05, Subliminal

A horse short on wins, but one who regularly places at this course. Has posted two smart third placings last two starts at this course. Lines up against slightly inferior opposition today, compared to those two previous starts. Today could be his day.

December 29th, 2019

Southwell 15:00, Moonraker

A long time since last win, but does have multiple course and distance wins. Smaller field, drawn well enough, with a drop out and swoop late run style. Pace should suit today with three others who like to lead.

December 28th, 2019

Lingfield 14:10, Arabic Culture

A big field and this horse should settle close to the pace, which might be what’s required to avoid interference in the closing furlongs. Drawn reasonable and has decent form on the board.

December 27th, 2019

Wolverhampton 15:40, Stay Classy

Placed second last time out at this course and distance, in this class. Last time out and third last time out were wins at another AW track, so the horse is well in form. Has drawn well enough and a late swooping run style should suit.

Wolverhampton 17:10, Storm Ahead

A course and distance winner. Has also placed at the course and distance in all of last three starts (including the win). Has a decent draw and a late swooping run style should suit. Could be overpriced in today’s field.

December 26th, 2019

Wolverhampton 16:55, Royal Birth

Previously a course and distance winner. Has run two decent placings at the course in the last three starts. Has strong form on the board and drawn well enough today. Hoping to settle just behind the leaders and run on the pace.

December 12th, 2019

Chelmsford 17:20 - Silent Attack

A good second placing last time out at this course and at this class level, although only over 7 furlongs. However, he has won over 1 mile before at this course back in 2016. Drawn reasonable and has every chance.

December 10th, 2019

Wolverhampton 17:15 - Lucky Lodge

Very consistent Tapeta performer, with multiple wins both at Wolverhampton and Newcastle. Likes to race close up, which is where most winners come from over 6 furlongs at Wolverhampton.

December 7th, 2019

Wolverhampton 18:20 - Stone Soldier

A really disappointing run LTO, but maybe that can be forgiven as over an unsuitable distance and too high in class. Could have just been an off day too. Today the horse is back over 6 furlongs, a distance he won over two and three starts back. Also back at Wolverhampton, where he won three starts back. This horse has won a Class 3 and is up against Class 4 and 5 winners today, apart from the favourite Raaeb, which is a horse that has not won at Wolves and likes to lead, which may not suit today.

Wolverhampton 18:50 - Bahuta Acha

Wasn’t disgraced last time out at this course, although over one furlong longer. Back to six furlongs today, where he is already a course and distance winner. Likes to track leaders, which should be an advantage here, and has a good enough stall to grab a strong position. A tight race, but with a bit of luck this consistent performer could win again.

December 6th, 2019

Newcastle 17:30 - Vive La Difference

Second LTO on this track, which was his best performance all season and first run on AW in last 10 starts. Likes to get back an come from behind, which should suit at this track. Back up one furlong in distance, after dropping back last start.

Newcastle 18:30 - Valley of Fire

Won LTO at this course and distance fourteen days ago. Likes to get back and run on, which should suit at this track and distance. Has drawn wide, but this shouldn’t come into play with usual run style anyway.

December 5th, 2019

Southwell 19:30 - Tynecastle Park

A real Southwell specialist with three wins and three seconds from last six starts here. Second up this preparation, so should be a little fitter and can go one better than last time course and distance second placing. Drops in class and an apprentice takes 7 pounds off.

December 4th, 2019

Kempton 18:40 Rangali Island

After an excellent run last time out at this course, on slow going, and drawing a good stall today, this horse has every chance of repeating the performance under similar conditions. Although his official mark has been raised, he should still have the speed, ability and class to win today.

December 3rd, 2019

Wolverhampton 16:15 - Tukhoom

Course and distance winner who put in a decent performance last time out on an unsuitable (Heavy) turf surface. Back on a firmer track he should be well suited today. Ran second last time at this track, beaten just 0.3 lengths.
