Betway 4 To Win: Newbury and Warwick racing tips 08 02 20

Chad Yeomans gives his best horse racing tips for Newbury and Warwick on Saturday to help you win the jackpot in our free-to-play prediction game.

4 To Win is Betway’s free-to-play prediction game, with a £1,000 prize on offer every single day and an increased jackpot of £10,000 for all ITV meetings. Simply guess the winner of four chosen races for your chance to claim the cash.

With £10,000 up for grabs on Saturday, here are Chad Yeomans‘ best horse racing tips for Newbury and Warwick to get you started.

13:50 Newbury

The opening leg of 4 To Win is a 0-145 handicap over 3m.

I think this is going to be a good weekend for Dan Skelton, so keep his mount Anytime Will Do {ODDS:533334728:11/2} on your side.

He won his first three starts as a novice hurdler last season, which, at any level, requires good ability.

He was unlucky at Huntingdon last February on his next start, which happened to be the last of his first season. On his seasonal reappearance, he carried top weight and finished a solid third in a handicap won by Honest Vic.

He was unlucky the next day at Newbury, when he got going too late, and also suffered traffic problems at a crucial part in the race at Huntingdon last time.

Newbury is a much fairer track that Huntingdon and I can see him going very well under Bridget Andrews, who is such an underrated rider.

15:15 Warwick

Two Taffs {ODDS:533334565:7/2} has always threatened to have a day in the sun and I think it’s going to happen on Saturday.

This is his third run since October 2017, making him a very lightly raced 10-year-old, but he has showed signs on both of his starts this season that he has got an engine.

He ran much better than the bare form suggests in the Ladbroke Trophy at Newbury on his most recent start, and this small field, and drop back in trip, should be right up his street.

15:35 Newbury

The Betfair Hurdle has shaped up to be an absolutely cracking race. It is certainly one that punters should get stuck in to.

A five- or six-year-old has won every year since 2004, including some good novices such as Al Dancer, Kalashnikov, Ballyandy and My Tent Or Yours, which just highlight how competitive this race has become.

While he’s never saddled the winner of the race, I’m keen on Willie Mullins’ mount Ciel De Niege {ODDS:532945009:10/1}, who is having his third run of the season.

On last year’s stable debut, he was pitched into the Boodles Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival and finished a very good third. Without a mistake three out, he could have even won the race.

He reappeared in a £54,000 Handicap at Fairyhouse in December, and finished an eye-catching fourth.

He was beaten last time out, which came as a shock to punters who had backed him at his SP of 1/4, but a collision with the island railing means we can’t read too much into that. He did fly home to only get narrowly beaten by a head.

He looks to have plenty of talent and is worth keeping on side for the master trainer.

Another horse I like in this big field handicap is Stolen Silver {ODDS:532944991:12/1} for the Father-and-Son due of Nigel and Sam Twiston-Davies.

He is a horse who is clearly improving after his success in a Grade 2 Novice Hurdle at Haydock last time and I’d be disappointed if he didn’t place.

15:50 Warwick

It’s going to take a real stayer to see out this trip at Warwick, which is a real test of both speed and stamina.

Despite having to carry 11-12, Dadsintrouble {ODDS:533334579:SP} looks well handicapped on his hurdles mark of 121. He is still lightly-raced for a 10-year-old, but he shaped with plenty of promise on his most recent start at Market Rasen in October, when he made good late headway over 2m7f.

Going back up in trip today should help him and, if he’s fit and well, he should go close.
