Racing tips: Free daily betting advice including bets at every meeting in the UK and Ireland

Check out our race-by-race tips and preview for Thursday's action

Ben Linfoot was firmly among the winners on Wednesday and David Ord is in the hotseat for Thursday's action, the nap running at Newton Abbot.

Every day, our team of racing experts will pull together their strongest fancies and best bets from each meeting, headlined by the Sporting Life Nap.


HURAIZ - 2.15 Lingfield

He might be wearing the second colours of Hamdan Al Maktoum but HURAIZ looks the answer to the Bombardier British-Hopped Amber Beer Handicap.

Jim Crowley prefers Ghalyoon but that five-year-old is a freegoing sort who needs an end-to-end gallop to shine and he's unlikely to get that here. In contrast the selection is more straightforward and went very close when last seen at Chelmsford in June, going down narrowly to Animal Instinct.

He has an absence to overcome but is unlikely to need this given the hands he's in and William Buick is a positive booking.

ARIANDE - 3.28 Newton Abbot (NAP)

ARIANDE can provide Philip Hobbs with a welcome winner in the Weatherbys Racing Bank Handicap Chase.

The eight-year-old was about to run out a ready scorer on her final start for John Flint when falling at the last at Ffos Las and despite a six pounds rise still appeals as being attractively handicapped. She handles testing ground and can take advantage of the weight she receives all round here.

JOSIE ABBING - 4.06 Stratford

Soyouthingsogain will be a warm order in the Stratford Racecourse Handicap Hurdle after taking a considerable step forward in cheekpieces at Carlisle last time.

However that was only last week and in testing ground and JOSIE ABBING represents a bit of value. A bumper winner, her mark has been in freefall of late but she shaped as if needing her run last time. She's now 13 pounds below the mark from which she was third at Newbury in January and could pop up at a decent price.

GORGEOUS GENERAL - 4.45 Southwell

Already a five-time winner at the track, GORGEOUS GENERAL can make it a super six at Southwell in the Read Andrew Balding On Betway Insider Handicap.

Ben Curtis was in the saddle when he was beaten a nose by Puchita here last time (the pair well clear) and he must take all the beating in this despite going up three pounds.

ASDAA - 6.00 Chelmsford

There was a hint of a rival from ASDAA at Wolverhampton last time and he's a well handicapped horse if he is heading back into form.

Mark Johnston's charge is now on the same mark as when winning here in January and five pounds below his last winning one. He showed much more than of late when fifth behind Impatient at Dunstall Park. He'll get a lead from Love Dreams in this and looks set to go well.
