Today’s horse racing tips are from Wetherby and Lingfield which brings us a mix of national hunt and flat racing.

The top fixture of the day is a Class 2 handicap from the latter venue where Tone The Barone features as one of the strong favourites of the day.

We look at that handicap as well as five other races from UK racing.

So here are the best of today’s horse racing tips for Friday, January 7th 2022.

All times listed are GMT.

Race Type: Class 2 handicap
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 5
Distance: 5f

Race Preview

TONE THE BARONE is an odds-on favourite for this contest and he does set the standard in this contest.

He was last seen three weeks ago taking a handicap victory at Wolverhampton, making clear progress in that one.

On top of that Tone The Barone is a course and distance winner and may have a chance to defy a 6lb rise.

MARINE JAMES is interesting after having gone well a week ago at course and distance.

He has not won since 2018 but has won once on the Polytrack before from five previous efforts.

Following that recent credible run, his front-running style could put him in it.

ORANTE is another course and distance winner. He is sliding down the weight by having a little revival with a credible run at Southwell six days ago, burning out early on a five-furlong trip after doing too much early on.

STRONG POWER is under a 5lb penalty on Friday after winning earlier this week at course and distance.

That arguably makes him a contender in this one, but he’s still a long way out of the handicap and this is much tougher.


Ones to watch: Strong Power 6/1, Marnie James 10/3

PLEDGE OF PEACE is still looking to get off the mark but could have some reasonable claims on Friday.

He was at the course and distance three weeks ago on his latest but never found a position in that one to challenge from. He could be right there with a clear run.

MORANI KALI had the cheekpieces applied on his penultimate run, which resulted in him getting his nose in front at Kempton.

He followed that up quite well with a fourth-place finish at Southwell in December.

He gets top jockey Tom Marquand and Morani Kali has a chance.

DEVIZES cannot be dismissed here after taking a fourth-place finish at the course and distance three weeks ago.

He was mourning a late challenge well in that one.

Devizes is a three-time C&D winner and should make his presence felt. He returns on an unchanged mark.


Ones to watch: Pledge Of Peace 6/1, Devizes 11/8

GRAND TURINA has run herself into form very well and will be seeking a hat-trick bid on Friday.

After a long winless streak, she is thriving again, with the most recent of her wins coming on December 31st at Warwick in good style.

Grand Turina comes back at the same mark and she may not be far away from completing the three-timer.

GERYVILLE has had form franked from his recent second-place finish at Wetherby a month ago.

That followed a success at that particular venue so Geryville arrived in top form.

There has only been a 1lb rise for him as he returns on Friday and could make a strong impression once again.

GUETAPAN COLLONGES is one to consider in horse racing betting for the shortlist.

He looks as if he can find further improvement after being held on his debut in this sphere at Stratford 47 days ago.

Guatepan Collonges was in cracking handicap hurdle form last season and may just need more experience over the bigger stuff.


Ones to watch: Geryville 3/1, Gueteapan Collonges 7/1

14:35 Wetherby Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Betting

Race Type: Class 4 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m

Race Preview

BALKARDY picked up a win 47 days ago opening his account over the hurdles. Everything just went in his favour in that one, including a strong gallop.

Blakardy has been handed a 4lb rise but could have a reasonable chance if he finds a way to back up that clear step forward in form.

LORD CAPRIO is one to watch, having won two of his last five runs.

The latest of those was in a conditionals event at Sedgefield in November.

There were excuses last time out for him, but a revival is not out of the question for Lord Caprio and he’s worth considering for the shortlist.

GLOBAL AGREEMENT is the other potentially key contender in his field.

He took a score at Lingfield last month, a huge return to top form from him there.

Global Agreement won’t close on a follow up as well, taking a runner up spot. The winner from that has since gone on to score against, so the Global Agreement is a strong one.


Ones to watch: Balkardy 4/1, Global Agreement 3/1

DONLADD was a fairly strong hurdler and hasn’t quite delivered in this sphere as of yet.

He went into his chase debut at Hexham in November last year on a 2m trip.

Donladd was second from last but could be better for the experience.

Donladd has had a wind op since then and his yard is in excellent form at the moment too.

RELKADAM is a former course and distance winner. There was a good run from him on his latest, which was 10 days ago.

He gets on the shortlist being a former course and distance winner as well. He can handle himself in this kind of company.

HALCYON DAYS has found some good recent form. He ended a losing streak with a score in March at Carlisle.

There was another good effort from Halcyon days last time out as well, taking a runner up at Hexham a month ago.


Ones to watch: Relkadam 3/1, Donladd 5/1

13:25 Wetherby Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 3m

Race Preview

READYSTEADYBEAU could be one to watch for the shortlist in this competitive-looking fixture.

He got off the mark last time out, putting everything together very well to land a win at Haydock in a maiden hurdle.

The extra trip that he went on, suited him well and for his handicap debut appears to have been handed a chance by the assessor.

MY LAST OSCAR got off the mark when he made his seasonal reappearance in October.

That score happened at Lingfield and he had plenty to spare in that one as well.

He was back there 52 days ago on his latest but didn’t reproduce the jumping form. My Last Oscar is not to be discounted.

GUILLEMOT took a tumble on his last three weeks ago at Leicester. That was a heavy fall as well on what was his chasing debut.

He’s immediately been moved back to the hurdles and the cheekpieces will be applied for the first time.

On his penultimate run, Guillemot was beaten only by one that is thriving so could make his presence felt back over the smaller stuff

TO BE SURE is another to consider for horse racing betting here. He has had a good season and won at Ffos Las in November over the hurdles on a 3m trip.

To Be Sure had a sequence of good form snapped last time out at Aintree a month ago.

But there’s enough to read in his previous form to put him right in the thick of things.


Ones to watch: To Be Sure 5/1, My Last Oscar 5/1
