Nap Of The Day

Horse Racing Tips: Nap of the Day


Matt Brocklebank provides the best bets from around the tracks on Monday, with his Nap selection running at Kempton Park.


Monday selections

NAP HAND - 4.45 Kempton (Nap)

Alan King's NAP HAND looks just that in the Unibet Support Safe Gambling Nursery at Kempton on Monday.

He was just undone by the way the race unfolded on handicap debut here earlier in the month, winner Monopolise getting the perfect split by the rail and Nap Hand having to switch just when engaging top gear.

He ran on well to be beaten just a neck on that occasion and can go one better off just a 2lb higher mark today.

LILITH - 2.30 Catterick

LILITH was easy to back on her Kempton comeback and ultimately raced like she might just have needed the outing, jumping a bit scruffily and ending up coming home in her own time some 40 lengths adrift of Tweed Skirt.

Having ended last season with back-to-back wins at Newbury and Punchestown, it was clearly a disappointing reappearance run but it's one she can build on and the handicapper has eased her a couple of pounds as a result.

Catterick's Millbry Hill Country Store Mares' Novices' Handicap Chase is a winnable affair and, with the blinkers off, she looks a decent bet under Ben Godfrey claiming 3lb.

THE THIN BLUE LINE - 6.25 Wolverhampton

Division one of the BetUK Over 40,000 Live Streamed Races Handicap at Wolverhampton looks quite and open affair and a chance is taken on THE THIN BLUE LINE who has slipped back to his last winning mark.

That success came back in April on the turf at Musselburgh but this horse has been placed in six of his 10 all-weather starts to date, winning three, and he wasn't disgraced when fifth at Southwell back on a synthetic surface earlier this month.

Going back up to six furlongs looks likely to suit on that evidence and the booking of Kevin Stott looks a potentially significant one here.
