12:50 Southwell (9th January) Free Horse Racing Tips

Three sprints today, 12.50-Wheres Reiley is the best handicapped horse in this claimer and has won 7 times before at Southwell. He likes to try and lead, he hasn't run at the track for over a year now. The trainer is not in the best of form but does do quite well in claimers and sellers and the horse has recently come into the yard from Alistair Lidderdale and a new environment sometimes helps, so I would advise only a small wager. 

1.50-the early pace in this race is likely to come from Baltic Prince & Pearl Noir. I don't think either are good enough to lead all the way and I think it could play into the hands of Grace Hull, she ran well on Sunday here and being turned out again quickly makes me think it may be an improving 4 year old. 

4-10 the only confirmed front runner in the race is Seamster so it might get an uncontested lead and that would certainly enhance its chances of winning. There looks like plenty of horses will be tracking the leader which makes this a tricky race, the horse that comes out top on my rating is Interchoice Star. My honest opinion is to leave the race alone but if forced to bet i would split my stakes with the 2 horses mentioned.
