Best horse racing tips for today’s action at Southwell, Plumpton, Musselburgh and Kempton from Tom BullFebruary 12, 2019
NOW the equine flu disaster is out of the way we can get back to some serious business!
There are some pearlers to be found amongst the cards on Wednesday and I reckon I’ve got some sure things to set the bank balance soaring.
2.30 Royal Cosmic – Richard Fahey’s improving type scampered away for a very impressive success at Newcastle last time.
She’s copped an 8lb rise but gets in here under a 6lb penalty and that doesn’t look enough to stop her going in again.
Seb Woods has developed a nice relationship with her and provided she has more to come back on fibresand she can win once more.

2.10 Acey Milan – Considering how good a bumper horse he was, his hurdling career so far has been extremely disappointing.
However, he’s not yet raced over the minimum trip and that could just be the catalyst for improvement.
At his best he would pick these up and carry them and the fact he hasn’t got a penalty is a big plus.
Bully's Wednesday Bankers
Southwell 2.30 – Royal Cosmic
Plumpton 2.10 – Acey Milan
Musselburgh 4.55 – Oliver’s Island
Kempton 6.45 – Moon Of Baroda
4.55 Oliver’s Island – Poor old Musselburgh had their Festival trials meeting cancelled twice and unfortunately this meeting is a real howler.
There are a couple who will be short prices throughout the card and this fellow is one, having won in good style last time out under amateur Philip Armson.
He should be able to follow up in what looks a very weak race, even accounting for a rise in the weights.
7.45 Moon Of Baroda – The step up to this trip has worked well for Charlie Hills’ contender on his last couple of starts and he looks a horse to follow over what’s left of the winter.
He’s only been raised 1lb for his win last time out which looks very kind and he is very unexposed on synthetic surfaces.
David Probert was whacking in the winners before flu started and he can guide another home here.
