Horse Racing Tips: Politics fancied for Wolves win on Wednesday

JAN 18th

With Newbury already abandoned on Wednesday, we are hoping that no other meetings fall foul to the cold snap and there will hopefully be four meetings taking place today. The action gets under way at Plumpton at 13:25, while there's alternative racing at Wolverhampton, Dundalk and Southwell and we pick out some of the most eye-catching tips here...

This time last week Mick Appleby's Politics was a clear one-and-a-quarter length winner at Lingfield Park and the five-year-old will attempt to follow that up this afternoon by claiming victory in the 15:50 at Wolverhampton. The potentially progressive raider will have the burden of a 5lbs penalty this afternoon and he will need to show he can deliver at Southwell, but he has proven the most popular nap of the day with four tipsters napping him for today's event. Marlborough from the Daily Telegraph and West Tip from the Western Morning News are two of the tipsters that have napped Politics, who is currently the clear 6/5 favourite for today's event.

Robin Goodfellow of the Daily Mail is a tipster in red-hot form having napped three winners on the spin, and he will look to make it four winning naps on the bounce this afternoon and has napped the 4/1 shot Giorgio Vasari in the 15:15 at Wolverhampton. The course and distance winner has been busy on the track over the last few months and was last seen finishing second at Chelmsford City off a mark of 61. The five-year-old will line up off the same mark this afternoon, so if he can improve slightly then he has to be more than capable of landing today's prize.

Andrew Bladen from the Wolverhampton Express & Star heads to Plumpton's National Hunt card this afternoon and is hope David Bridgwater's Dame du Soir can build on a recent success at Cheltenham, but she is higher in the handicap in today's contest at 13:55. Available at 7/4 at the moment, Dame du Soir will have the burden of top weight, but comes into the contest in excellent form, so has to be respected.

There's a seven-race all-weather card at Southwell this afternoon and that fixture has caught the eye of several of our tipsters and the George Boughey-trained King's Gem has been napped by three tipsters for the 19:45 event, and at 6/4 looks a leading contender to grab the win. Napped by both Spotlight from the Racing Post and Melissa Jones from the Daily Express, King's Gem will make his handicap debut this evening off a mark of 73 and the son of Kingman could be more than good enough at that mark and has to be respected.

Earlier on in the afternoon, Charlie Johnston's Ray Of Colours is another at Southwell that has been napped by three tipsters and the 11/4 chance will only have to face two rivals, but it looks a trappy event. On The Nose (Expert Eye) is one of the three tipsters to nap the Johnston raider, who is another making his handicap debut this evening at 17:45 and the son of Ribchester has been handed an initial mark of 70, so will look to strike gold in a winnable event.

Jonathan Portman's Falesia Beach is the third and final nap from Southwell that has been picked out by three tipsters, and that raider lines up in the 18:45 contest. Both Templegate from The Sun and Lambourn from the Racing Post have napped the 15/8 shot that was a winner at the track last month off a mark of 67 and lining up off 70 today has to be considered on the shortlist.
