Thursday's Horse Racing Betting Tips & Predictions - 22nd October 2020


It's non-stop action on Thursday with a hectic schedule of seven meetings to take place in the UK and Ireland.

Jumps racing leads us out at Carlisle (12:35-16:34) with more National Hunt racing coming from Lingfield (13:15-17:15), Ludlow (13:25-17:25) and Thurles (13:00-16:27).

On the Flat meanwhile, they go in the afternoon at Navan (13:20-17:20) before evening all-weather racing from Wolverhampton (16:05-20:15) and Chelmsford City (16:59-20:30).

Thursday's Horse Racing Predictions

14:22 Lingfield

Huntsmans Jog to win and each-way - BET NOW

Fergal O'Brien's horses remain in good tune this autumn, the trainer having enjoyed a prolific run of things with regular pilot Paddy Brennan. The latter has exuded confidence in recent weeks and they've got an interesting new recruit here in Huntsmans Jog.

The six-year-old Milan gelding showed some promise in bumpers/maiden hurdles during 2018/19, finishing third behind the useful Eva's Oscar at Hexham when last sighted under rules. Since then, he has picked up two wins in three starts in point-to-points before joining this stable.

The trip looks ideal for him and an opening handicap mark of 114 will surely prove to be within his reach before long. Given the form of the O'Brien team lately, it is worth taking a chance that he hits the ground running for new connections.

15:10 Ludlow

Goa Lil to win and each-way - BET NOW

Nigel Twiston-Davies' stable often makes a fast start to the winter campaign and, with Cheltenham's Showcase Meeting around the corner, the Naunton handler will be eager to make forward strides.

Goa Lil is fancied for a big run on chasing bow at Ludlow in the Isaac Suede and Simon Munir silks, having shown himself to be in good health recently over hurdles at Chepstow when third behind Thyme White - a promising sort from the Paul Nicholls yard.

That run should leave Goa Lil spot on for this first chasing test. He concedes experience to Dan Skelton's Monsieur D'arque - second on his two most recent starts over fences at Warwick and Newton Abbot - but Daryl Jacob's mount gets a worthwhile four-year-old allowance to compensate and that 7lb differential could prove crucial.

Goa Lil has the scope to make up into a promising chaser and can make a bright start here. 

17:40 Wolverhampton

Rafiki to win and each-way - BET NOW

Richard Hannon's Collinsbay sets a clear standard in the Royal silks for this novice event at Wolverhampton but he is finding winning elusive. He's 0-6 now and while he has shaped with plenty promise on turf, he was turned over at odds-on last month at Chelmsford in a similar event to this having looked all at ease on the artificial surface.

He may well be good enough to get the job done eased in class tonight but Rafiki is an each-way alternative. 

Alan King's charge outran a massive price on debut at Kempton to make the frame behind an easy Godolphin winner 29 days ago and should build on that effort under James Doyle now. Two of the rivals that finished behind him won their next starts and, with progress expected, Rafiki can once again get in the shake-up here.
