Andrew heads to the all-weather fixtures at Newcastle and Chelmsford for his two recommended bets/trades on Thursday, March 2nd. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites with the lowdown on his latest picks below:
ANDREA ATZENI has three good rides at Newcastle this afternoon, with OBSIDIAN KNIGHT of particular interest in the 1m2f Class 3 handicap (3.10). He often comes from off the pace – tactics ideally suited to Newcastle – and Atzeni gave him a patient ride when successful on the gelding at Lingfield back in October, the only previous occasion he has been on board. GREAT BEDWYN, in-form Atzeni’s first mount (2.35), took a big step forward on his second outing when a 66-1 third at Lingfield and could go well, while THE GATEKEEPER looks a likely improver now that he’s been gelded ahead of his all-weather debut (4.20). Buy ATZENI in the Spreadex NEWCASTLE JOCKEYS MARKET or combine his mounts in a fixed odds patent.
Recommendation: Buy ANDREA ATZENI in Newcastle jockeys
THE BAY WARRIOR
THE BAY WARRIOR was only fourth of the eight runners when heavily backed into 11-8 favouritism for a Class 6 course and distance handicap last month but can be forgiven that defeat on account of the ride he received. Inexperienced claimer Rose Dawes rushed him up on the outside to press the early pace three wide into the first bend and simply used up the petrol too soon. Rhys Clutterbuck, whose record on Mark Usher’s five-year-old, stands at 2124 (1-4) takes over and he can bounce back tonight. Buy in the Spreadex 50-25-10 market.
Recommendation: Back THE BAY WARRIOR in Chelmsford 8.00
