Free betting tips: Sporting Life's daily horse racing nap of the day

David Ord hopes a well-handicapped mare is capable of successfully conceding weight to all her rivals at Chepstow on Friday.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, January 18

Smaoineamh Alainn is a well handicapped horse and can underline the fact by landing the Floyd Turfcare Mares' Handicap Hurdle at Chepstow.

Robert Walford's charge is back down to her last winning mark and ran well when set impossible tasks on her first two starts this term. She was strong in the market returned to handicaps at Cheltenham last time but never had a chance after a bid mistake at the fifth.

She steps up to two-and-a-half miles here, which she shapes as though will suit, and is one-from-one at the course. The excellent Rex Dingle claims a valuable five pounds off and there must be a chance she'll prove a cut above these.
