Thursday’s horse racing tips: This 20-1 longshot at Chelmsford has been missed by the bookies plus two each way shouts

8 mins read

SUN Racing is back to give you some insight on big horses at even bigger prices.

Here, we try to find the value bets which could you net you a tasty return from a small stake.


MOHAREB (5.00 Chelmsford)

This four-year-old did really well last season with a victory here and a couple of successes at Lingfield.

One of those came over this distance and the handicapper has finally given him a little help with a 2lb drop.

He looked rusty when beaten just three lengths coming back from a break at Kempton and should be thereabouts at decent odds.

Each way thief

CRAZY SPIN (2.20 Southwell)

She’s one of many specialists at this track where the ground rides on the slow side.

The four-year-old has dropped to just 2lb higher than her success here four runs ago and she got no luck in running at Chelmsford last time.

MUTAABEQ (7.00 Chelmsford)

Joe Fanning’s ride almost pulled off a 50-1 shock when running here two outings ago.

He was beaten less than two lengths when seeming to relish this distance.

He comes back from 1lb lower in the weights and should be right in the shake-up again.

Aside from these, SunSport resident tipster Templegate has picked a horse in each race on Thursday.
