Horse Racing Tips Today: Nap of the Day


David Ord found two winners from three Sunday tips and now Matt Brocklebank is at the helm with a bet on all five Monday cards in the UK.


Monday Nap of the Day

SAGAUTEUR - 8.15 Windsor (NAP)

The hat-trick seeking Glen Esk could be worth taking on after a short-head Haydock win last time and SAGAUTEUR is starting to look very interesting.

David O'Meara's French recruit had a stiff looking mark of 89 when first racing for the yard last September but, after seven starts in the UK, has slipped 19lb and now sneaks in near the top of this 0-70 handicap.

He hung in there for longer than appeared likely after racing with the choke out for the first half of the race at Newbury last time and, if settling better on this occasion, shouldn't be underestimated with Jason Watson taking over for the first time in the saddle.

CLAIM THE STARS - 3.15 Kempton

The front two pulled clear of the rest when CLAIM THE STARS finished second at Ayr last time and while the winner has been beaten at a short price since, Mark Johnston's charge looks the one to be on ahead of his nursery debut.

The Starspangled banner colt will be sent on early by William Buick and is likely to take plenty of passing up the long home straight which is bound to play to his strengths.


DENY KNOWLEDGE - 3.25 Newcastle

John Quinn has his team in good order right now and DENY KNOWLEDGE looks worth persevering with at Newcastle.

She's bred for much further but reacted positively after a drop to sprinting when second at Thirsk last time and remains totally unexposed over this sort of trip.

She's gone up 2lb which she could probably have done without but there are all-weather winners in her pedigree and I fancy she'll love the kind of rest presented by this Tapeta surface.

MACHO PRIDE - 3.42 Ripon

MACHO PRIDE seemed to win with his ears pricked at Haydock last month and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the three-year-old really kick on now he's back in the groove.

Ben Haslam's charge has always been quite well regarded and had a juvenile rating of 87 initially, so he's not badly off here running from a revised mark of 81 and it looks a case of good placement taking on the older horses again.


AMAYSMONT - 7.30 Carlisle

He's not the most consistent and needs to bounce back from a pretty poor run at York last time but AMAYSMONT is down in class and looks well worth chancing in the mile handicap at Carlisle.

The last time he visited this course he won a six-furlong maiden on his racecourse debut in August 2019 but he definitely gets this longer trip and based on his Musselburgh second behind Cockalorum at the end of May, could have a class edge over the majority of these rivals.
