NAP Of The Day | Free Racing Tips For Today

1.15 Newbury – Aso (WIN)

Veterans' Chases are always popular betting heats, probably down to the fact that most punters have backed all of the runners at some point or another over the years.

One of the most familiar horses in this particular line up is the Venetia Williams-trained Aso, who at the age of twelve is still running up to a high level.

Third last time out at Exeter, Aso can out up another bold show on Saturday under Charlie Deutsch. Of the others, Indy Five looks favourably weighted off just 10st 5lbs.

1.32 Kelso – It’s Good To Laugh (E/W)

The Jennie Candlish-trained It’s Good To Laugh comes into this Grade 2 Hurdle with a great each-way chance.

Currently trading at 9/1 in our horse racing betting market, the exciting five-year-old won in convincing fashion at Catterick Bridge last time and prior to that was an excellent second to Barrichello at Haydock.

Candlish’s runners tend to fare well at this stage of the season but many folks will overlook this one in the betting, thus ensuring a nice starting price.

1.50 Newbury – Amoola Gold (E/W)

Amoola Gold was pitched in against leading Queen Mother Champion Chase candidates Shishkin and Energumene two starts ago but this race is very much his level.

Dan Skelton’s nine-year-old started off this season with two cracking runs at Ascot and a reproduction of that form would make him a certain podium finisher here.

Glen Forsa returned to form with a bang at Musselburgh a month ago and can give our selection the most to do.

2.05 Newbury – N’golo (E/W)

This isn’t the first time N’golo has been tipped up in this column and today’s race appears to be his easiest task to date since joining Ann Duffield’s stable.

Replay watchers will see that this grey seven-year-old was always racing too wide last time out and a better run can be expected here.

Hart Of Steel has pulled his last two races out of the fire, while Elvis Mail is well overdue a win this season.

2.20 Doncaster – Marsh Wren (E/W)

Get A Tonic’s proximity to Marie’s Rock last time appears to be directing the betting market here but many will be queuing up to take on the 5/6 shot.

The Stuart Edmunds-trained Marsh Wren has been progressing nicely through the novice hurdle division this season and certainly deserves her place in the Listed contest. At 16/1 in the betting she looks far too big a price to ignore.

2.40 Kelso – Hill Sixteen (E/W)

Hill Sixteen is highly unlikely to make the cut for the Grand National which is a crying shame for the Becher Chase runner-up, but this race could well be his National substitute instead.

Fourth in the Great Yorkshire Chase last time, he was doing all his best work late, and providing they don’t lead him an early merry dance, I can see him picking them all off late up the Kelso hill.

The biggest danger on paper appears to be Big River who is a Kelso specialist.

2.55 Doncaster- Cheddleton (NAP)

Top-weighted Cheddleton can be rewarded for his consistency this season with a victory in this Doncaster 2m ½f Chase.

The seven-year-old gelding has put in some gutsy performances this season, namely his runner-up berth in Wetherby’s Castleford Chase and the same again in Cheltenham’s Simon Claisse Chase.

He looks sure to be in the hunt once more and we make him our 888Sport NAP of the day. Others that could challenge our NAP are Gaelik Coast and Bun Doran.

3.15 Kelso – Metier (WIN)

A bumper entry for this year’s Morebattle Hurdle and the spoils on this occasion can go the way of Harry Fry’s Metier.

It’s highly significant that Fry has chosen to go to Scotland with his six-year-old this week, rather than heading to Sandown next weekend for the Imperial Cup. That’s a tip in itself don’t you think?

Dangers on paper include the veteran Buveur D’Air who needs no introduction, and Cormier for Brian Ellison who has picked up the winning thread again.

3.20 Doncaster – Storm Control (WIN)

Kerry Lee’s Storm Control returns to the crime scene if his 1.01 gubbing by Windsor Avenue in the Great Yorkshire Chase.

Lightning really shouldn’t strike twice and there is every reason to believe that the nine-year-old can race into an unstoppable lead again down the Doncaster home straight.

Our money is on him not getting caught and at 11/2 in our online betting market, he looks a great bet. Those looking for forecast options should consider perm Le Milos and Cloth Cap alongside our pick.

3.43 Kelso – Seemorelights

Trainer Sandy Thomson is no stranger to a Kelso winner or two and his Seemorelights looks the logical choice in the last race on ITV Racing.

Ryan Mania takes the mount and he has a superb strike rate with Thomson. Take Heartbreak Kid for the forecast position.
