Nap Of The Day

Horse Racing Tips: Nap of the Day


Ben Linfoot had a 7/1 winner on Wednesday and now David Ord has all the best bets for Thursday.


Thursday selections


YVETTE GUILBERT – 4.31 Warwick (NAP)

From the family of Burrows Saint, YVETTE GUILBERT showed enough in three starts last season to suggest an opening mark of 98 might prove generous.

Dan Skelton’s charge was rough around the edges in her three races, taking a keen hold when third to Natty Night at Taunton on her final outing. She’d previously made a big mid-race move at Southwell before tiring and the suspicion is there’ll be plenty more to come with another summer on her back.

WALLOP – 3.44 Salisbury

He was thrown in at the deep end when fifth in the Mill Reef at Newbury last time and WALLOP can take advantage of the drop in grade to open his account .

The son of Harry Angel finished third to Noble Style and Mill Stream at Newmarket on debut and that’s very strong form and he improved on it in the Group Two last time. Any more progress and he’ll be hard to beat.

GRANARY QUEEN – 4.39 Lingfield

She finished well from the rear when second at Kempton last time and from the ceiling mark of 70 in this contest, GRANARY QUEEN makes plenty of appeal.

Eve Johnson Houghton’s charge is only two pounds above her last winning mark and arrives here in good form, a comment that doesn’t apply to many of her rivals.

Timeform Flat Offer

NELSON GAY – 8.00 Chelmsford

His mark has been in freefall and he took advantage when chasing home Open Mind over six furlong here last time and NELSON GAY has to be of interest from an unchanged rating.

The drop back to the minimum trip shouldn’t be a problem, Adam Kirby is a positive jockey booking and the Richard Hughes team continue to go well.

WORLD WITHOUT LOVE – 8.15 Wolverhampton

She’s taken well to Tapeta of late and WORLD WITHOUT LOVE can gain reward for her consistency by landing this.

She’s down a pound having finished fifth at Newcastle last time, making her move earlier than ideal. The Johnston team reach for blinkers here and if they help, she can get the better of Ice House.
