Horse-racing ‘Tip Of The Day’ — Tuesday January 8
Tuesday January 8
Chepstow 2.30 WIN
In-form trainer Venetia Williams has profited more than most from the prevailing soft and heavy ground this season, and could saddle another winner in this ordinary 2m handicap chase. Her seven-year-old gelding has been given a two-month break since his UK chasing debut when third in a decent contest at Warwick. But just a repeat of that performance, behind two useful novices, might well be enough on this first venture into handicap company, particularly as he has been handed an opening mark lower than his hurdles rating. He’s a son of former top Flat horse, Giant’s Causeway, but has been a sound jumper since gaining valuable experience of fences in France earlier in his career.
