Horse Racing Tips: Thursday February 20th 2020

Today`s best bets from the racing action at Sedgefield and Chelmsford.

Nap – Informateur 3.33 Sedgefield

Trainer Sue Smith looks to have found a good opportunity for Informateur to find himself in the winner’s enclosure for the 2nd time this season. A winner at Uttoxeter back in November he has since posted 2 solid efforts at Haydock against tougher opponents than he faces today. Previous course winner he should find this easier and Sue Smith/Danny Cook arrive in good form themselves (12R 3W 5P last month).

Next Best – Frankie Balou 4.33 Sedgefield

3 times CD winner including winning this event in 2018. Frankie Balou has been running consistently well without getting his head in front recently but could be running himself into form (all previous wins between Feb-April). This looks an easier event down to class 5 and hopefully he won’t see too much competition for the early pace. Danny Cook takes over today who has ridden him to victory in the past and is normally good for a winner or 2 at Sedgefield (21% strike rate last 12 months).

Each Way –Suzi`s Connoisseur 6.00 Chelmsford

Another chance is taken on previous CD winner Suzi`s Connoisseur this evening. He has slipped down to a handy rating, now 3lb below last winning mark and did not really have the run of the race when expected to go well last time out at Lingfield. Conditions will be fine and drops down to this lower grade tonight.
