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

3/1 winner for David Ord on Friday and he heads to Ascot for his best bet and a Paul Nicholls hurdler on a retrieval mission.

Sporting Life Daily Nap, February 16

He wouldn’t be Paul Nicholls’ highest-profile runner on Saturday but WORTHY FARM looks a good bet for the Best Racing On Racing TV Handicap Hurdle at Ascot.

The six-year-old disappointed at Cheltenham last time, having been sent off favourite, but that can be explained by a change of tactics. With a more restrained ride expected here, he can resume his previous progress and there was a lot to like about his win at Taunton in November.

He travelled like a well handicapped horse there and would have been a ready winner but for wandering after the final flight. He’s a work in progress but appeals as better than a 123 hurdler and can underline that point here.

Sporting Life Daily Nap, February 17

NOBEL LEADER gets weight from all his rivals in the Mansionbet Handicap Chase and he can take advantage by striking for Ben Poste and James Evans.

He's the in-form runner in the field too having struck at Bangor last time and a five-pounds hike in the ratings is unlikely to stop him in against exposed rivals.

There was a lot to like about the way he went through his race last time and he's only two pound above the mark form which he won at Southwell back in March.Astracad is a threat if back on song but that has to be a fairly significant if.
