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

Matt Brocklebank is in the nap hotseat on Sunday and he hopes it's a case of third time lucky at Exeter.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, January 20

It should be a case of third time lucky over obstacles for Golden Promise on Sunday.

He lines up for Jonjo O’Neill in the Starsports.Bet Maiden Hurdle on the back of two encouraging efforts over hurdles so far, the first of which when second to What’s Occurring at Hereford.

On the face of it, Golden Promise took a slight backwards step when only fifth back at the same venue when last seen in November but there was serious depth to that event with third Jarveys Plate the most notable as he’s since claimed Listed honours at Cheltenham.

In total, Golden Promise has bumped into five subsequent scorers in his two efforts over timber and if he’s made any sort of progress in the 68 days he’s been off the track since, then he should take all the beating in what looks a relatively ‘winnable’ affair.

Quick ground seems to suit on what we’ve seen so far but he’s bred to handle ease underfoot so the son of Flemensfirth shouldn’t be inconvenience by the bit of rain around this weekend.
