Andrew Mount’s Best Bets – Thursday, January 27

Horse racing

Top tipster Andrew Mount has three bets across two races at Southwell on Thursday. Check out his thoughts below, which comes alongside an exclusive Virgin Bet offer that provides new customers with £20 in free bets.


MOHAREB – (2.25 Southwell, 1pt win, 7/1)

MOHAREB has a poor record on straight courses, recording form figures of 042606679 (0-9) and is best judged on his turning-track record in Britain, over 6f only, of 1135268121 (4-10).

He won well over course and distance on his penultimate start and didn’t see out the extra furlong here last time.

EYE OF THE WATER – (2.55 Southwell, 1pt win, 7/2)

EYE OF THE WATER was an eyecatcher over 7f here on his return from wind surgery last time, doing best of those to chase the strong early pace in a 16-1 fifth of 14.

Two of the other prominent racers – Radetsky in tenth and Impeach in 13th – have won since. Four of his five wins have come on turf but he has won on Tapeta (at Wolverhampton) and the drop back to 6f will suit.

CRITICAL THINKING – (2.55 Southwell, 1pt win, 16/1)

Horses dropping back from 7f have been doing well in 6f Southwell handicaps since the Tapeta went down, especially those who ran at Wolverhampton last time, and CRITICAL THINKING could surprise on his first ever sprint outing.

Eight of his ten all-weather wins have come on Tapeta and a strongly-run race at this trip could be just the ticket.
