Best horse racing tips for today’s action at Sedgefield, Exeter, Sandown and Kempton from Tom Bull
WE’RE off to Sedgefield on Friday! I’ve got loads of friends who live in the fields nearby so am looking forward to a good catch up over a plate or two of carrots.
Hopefully I can nab a winner there as well as at Exeter, Sandown and Kempton, where I’ve also got some hot fancies.
12.10 Millie The Minx – Look no further than the opener for your banker at my favourite track.
Dianne Sayer’s four-year-old was pretty impressive here on her last start, earning a 9lb rise for a facile victory over a decent field.
She gets in under a 7lb penalty now which means she’s 2lb well-in and top claimer Danny McMenamin takes the ride once more.
She looks capable of a big performance over a course a distance that clearly suits her well.

2.05 Siruh De Lac – Nothing appeals more than Nick Williams’ winning machine.
Since being switched to fences he’s won three of his five starts and resumed his progress in good style on reappearance, winning a competitive handicap at Newbury.
That form is yet to be fully tested but it was a promising performance and he likely has more improvement left even after being handed a 5lb rise.
He won at the track last seen and conditions are ideal for a big run.
Bully’s Friday Bankers
12.10 Sedgefield – Minnie The Minx
2.05 Exeter – Siruh De Lac
3.30 Sandown – My Brother
8.45 Kempton – Zarrar
3.30 My Brother – Looks the one to be on after finishing a very creditable second in a big field at Cheltenham last time out.
That was just his second start in handicaps and off just a 4lb higher mark he’s very dangerous.
This is a much weaker race and the trip and ground are both ideal.
Down in grade, he’s the one to beat.
8.45 Zarrar – Looked on the way back at Lingfield last month and duly delivered in some style at this track last time.
That was over a longer trip but he probably has the pace for a mile and a quarter and he’s 3lb well-in under a penalty.
Most of his rivals are woefully out of form and he might not need to improve to land another win.
