Horse Racing Tips Today: Nap of the Day


David Ord has a bet for every race meeting in the UK on Saturday with the best bet running at York.


Saturday Nap of the Day


MONSIEUR LAMBRAYS – 4.25 York (NAP)

Last year’s winner (follow link for free replay) MONSIEUR LAMBRAYS is fancied to repeat the dose in the Sky Bet Proud To Support Macmillan Handicap.

There’s a leap of faith involved as Tom Clover’s charge has only beaten six horses in two starts this term. However, he shaped like needing his Nottingham reappearance and then – with the visor reapplied – ran into trouble when staying on in the Northumberland Vase at Newcastle.

He drops back into calmer waters here, from a mark only two pounds above his winning one in 2020, and with Andrea Atzeni in the saddle.

THIRD KINGDOM – 3.20 Newcastle

A wide-margin winner on his only previous start here, THIRD KINGDOM rates a bet in the Collingwood Annual Learner Driver Insurance 'Beeswing' Handicap.

John and Thady Gosden’s charge took a step forward from his seasonal reappearance to finish third at Sandown last time and looked to be crying out for a step up a mile. He gets that here and from a pound lower mark looks sure to make a bold bid.

CAMELOT TALES – 4.10 Ascot

He produced an improved performance to beat his elders at Ayr last time and CAMELOT TALES is fancied to follow-up in the Sebastian's Action Trust Handicap.

He was well on top at the finish in Scotland and promises to progress further going up to a mile-and-a-half for the first time. The Simon and Ed Crisford team continue in great form and the three-year-old is racing from only a two pound higher mark.

NOMADIC EMPIRE – 4.50 Newmarket

David O’Meara and Jamie Spencer combine with NOMADIC EMPIRE who looks ready to run a big race in the MansionBet Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap.

He’d run well to finish second twice at York and Doncaster and his ninth at Ascot last time can be upgraded as he was second home in his group.

He’s been dropped a pound which is handy, Spencer is a notable booking and this is only his second start over six furlongs - a trip, pedigree-wise at least, he should relish.

FLEURMAN – 8.35 Salisbury

He’s been improving as he goes up in trip and there should be more to come from FLEURMAN in the H S Lester Memorial Handicap.

Ralph Beckett’s charge made a winning handicap debut over a mile-and-a-half here in May and then made Monbaher pull out all the stops at Doncaster.

He’s up another four pounds but a strongly-run mile-and-six should suit him down to the ground and he’s taken to come out on top in an open contest.
