Hello and welcome to arseonlinetips. A free 100% independent racing website with NO affiliate links. This website is curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles, Charlie hails from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight… Miles apart but united by the sport of kings…

After Charlie landed his Lucky last on Thursday and a Winner(albeit a Danger) in Richs Final Word column, we are back for more….

Standard blog with Charlies Saturday selections while Rich will have the Final Word, so with a rammed set of cards to get through, lets see what we have for you all….

Charlie – Cheers Rich been a frustrating few months from a betting perspective, too many 2nd and 3rd placed runners and being reliant on lucky last selection to dig me out of a hole. Hopefully that’s behind us now and we can get back to winning ways for our followers. Anyway enough about that let’s see what gems I’ve uncovered for today’s races.

Top Notch 🌟🌟-Top Notch has been there and done it all in terms of ability, although was 3rd at Ascot last time out over 3m in a Class 1 Group 1 Hurdle, reverts back to the larger obstacles here and a return to a more suitable track all point to a positive run. Nicky Henderson has a fantastic record at Kempton and Top Notch could add to the already bulging accolades he has achieved at this track.

Ballykhan 🌟🌟-Has placed 2nd here on last 2 visits to Kempton over 3m, although without a win since the summer of 2016 Ballykhan likes it here and the Twiston Davies yard are starting to get their horse’s back to the form they have shown in previous years. The only negative is the tongue-tie has been removed for this run but Ballykhan has plenty of ability just needs a little luck in running to get back in the winners enclosure and this race is as good a chance as any.

Keeper Hill 🌟🌟-Form has been a bit sketchy at best but took great strides into rectifying that last time out when finishing 2nd to Aaron Lad at Cheltenham over 3m in December. If turning up In same mood shown at Cheltenham should have too much for this field but will need to assert his presence in this race if he wants to go one better today.

Well that’s my thoughts on today’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now hand you back over to Rich for The Final Word.

Final Word with Rich –

Thanks Charlie, cracking winner on Thursday hopefully we can build on that… What do I have for you today…. Fairyhouse, Warwick & Kempton is what I have, so without too much of a fanfare…. Here we go!

Fairyhouse… Good to Yielding…

1.00 Hurdle… 2m…

Surin…. NHF winner over 2m at Market Rasen in October by a head before moving yards. Made Hurdle debut over 2m at Punchestown, finishing a 1/2 length runner up to Gardens of Babylon, who is also in the field. Surin receives 8Lb from that rival today….

Kempton… Good…

2.05 Class 1 Listed Chase… 2m 4f…

Top Notch…. Finished 3rd on season return in the JLT Hurdle, Grade 1 at Ascot on December 22nd and now the Grade 1 winning novice chaser makes a switch back to bigger fences. Last seen in this sphere in April, when landing the Oaksey Chase, Grade 2 at Sandown. The 3 time Grade 2 winning chaser is joint top rated at 162  and has to give weight to the field…

Warwick… Good…

1.50 Class 1 Listed Novice Chase… 3m…

Rocky Treasure…. Has won 3 of the 4 chase runs and finished a 4 length runner up to Santini in a Grade 2 in the other run… A last time out winner at Doncaster in the Grade 2 December Chase over 2m 8f by 17 lengths on December 15th and now has to give weight to the field for that win…

2.25 Grade 2 Class 1 Novice Hurdle… 2m 5f…

Tidal Flow… Is 2 from 2 over hurdles after landing a pair of 2m 5f novice races at Kempton on November 12th on hurdles debut by 2 lengths and notched a last time out win at Newbury on December 19th by 1 & 3/4 lengths, defying a penalty. Has top rating of 139 in this race but receives 5Lb from Grade 2 winning Rockpoint, who was a 2 & 3/4 length winner at Cheltenham on December 15th….

3.35… Class 2 Handicap Hurdle… 3m 1f…

First Assignment... Won on season return on October 26th in a Class 3 handicap hurdle at Cheltenham by a short head before landing a 3m Class 1 Listed contest at the same course on November 17th. The winning run came to an end, when on November 24th First Assignment finished 3rd by 1 3/4 lengths to Paisley Park in the 3m Grade 3 Stayers at Haydock. That form has been boosted by Paisley Park winning an Ascot Grade 1 last month while runner up Shades at Midnight also won next time out. Has had a break and that form looks very solid….

That is everything for you today folks, thanks very much for popping by. Your support is very much appreciated….

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
