Horse Racing Tips: Bill well fancied for Ffos Las glory

JAN 5th

There are three horse racing fixtures taking place on Thursday and the action gets under way at Wolverhampton at 12:45, while there's alternative racing at Ffos Las and Chelmsford City. We preview all the action here and pick out all the most popular naps from our host of racing writers...

Warren Greatrex's Bolsover Bill has racked up a brace of wins on his last two starts and the in-form six-year-old will bid for a hat-trick of wins this afternoon when he lines up in the 13:30 at Ffos Las. Proving extremely popular with our racing tipsters, a whopping nine of them have napped the Greatrex charge for today's event. The likes of current naps table leader Chris Wright from the Liverpool Echo and second placed tipster The Brigadier have both napped Bolsover Bill, who runs off 92 this afternoon and having won off that mark last time out he has to be a huge player.

Other eye-catching naps at Ffos Las include the Richard Bandey-trained Brulure Noire, who has been napped by four tipsters and lines up in the 14:00 race. Available at 11/4, at the time of writing, Bandey's raider is the best bet of the likes of Garry Owen from the Daily Record and Jon Freeman from The i and the six-year-old was a winner at the track last time out and is bidding for a second win at the Welsh venue on Thursday.

Punters looking to kick off the afternoon on a winning note at Ffos Las could head to the 13:00 race and back the Ben Pauling-trained Mrs Grimley, who has been napped by three tipsters for the opening race on the card. Placed on her two hurdle starts, the daughter of Australia is bidding for a first win over timber this afternoon and looks to be the one to beat.

Mercury of the Daily Post has been in sensational tipping form this week notching up three winning naps on the spin and that tipster heads to Ffos Las and has napped the Venetia Williams-trained Sole Solution, who is a 9/4 shot for the 16:00 race. Thirty minutes earlier, Jim Delahunt of the Scottish Sun will aim to notch up a third winning nap in a row and that tipster is another hoping the aforementioned Williams can bag another winner and Delahunt is backing the 13/8 favourite Dentley De Mee in the 15:30.

Switching to Wolverhampton's all-weather fixture this afternoon, Andrew Mount of the Racing & Football Outlook is another attempting to make it three winners on the spin and Mount has napped the 9/2 shot George Ridsdale in the 12:45 race. The Michael & David Easterby-trained charge was last seen finishing fifth at Chelmsford off 55 and will line up off the same mark today, but he's ran off a lot higher marks, so has to be respected.

Chelmsford host some Flat action this evening and two horses have been napped by our racing tipsters with The Guardian tipster napping the 10/1 shot Boasty in the 19:00 race, while at 20:30 Farringdon of the Morning Star has napped the 9/2 chance Ciao Adios.
