Nap of the day: best horse racing tips for the day's six meetings
Tuesday selections from Ayr, Roscommon, Salisbury, Southwell and more
Tuesday's best bets from the Racing Post'sunbeatable Spotlights team
Plenty are swiftly dismissed, so this race isn't anywhere near as competitive as the numbers would suggest. Tukhoom and Lagenda enter calculations on the basis of previous Ayr form, while the feasibly weighted Lofty is arguably more interesting. Nevertheless, it's difficult to look beyond the improving Motawaazy (nap) who has twice shown a pleasing attitude since joining Michael Dods, including latterly in first-time cheekpieces at Catterick last week.
If settling better than at Punchestown Willie The Coo should not be far away but he is far from certain to turn the tables on the penalised winner Carrarea (nap) who looks a more straightforward type. Whispering Pines and Our Man Flint both shaped well first time out. Golden Twilight is a potentially interesting newcomer.
After a recent Yarmouth second Roca Magica(nap) is easily the most solid option. Morrooj is next best despite being untried on the forecast good to firm ground, while Moonlighting is another seasonal debutate with each-way claims and Poet's Eye cannot be ignored in her first handicap.
2.00:Check My Pulse
Tardree was nicely in command in the closing stages of his recent chasing debut at Uttoxeter and remains unexposed under rules but today's 12lb higher mark demands more from him. Preference is for Check My Pulse (nap), who ran quite a bit better than he was entitled to on the figures when third in a recent Cartmel beginners' chase and now makes his handicap chase debut.
Any market confidence behind Pour Joie would be interesting on this second start since wind surgery, while Tinsmith would hold each-way claims at least if transferring his creditable recent AW efforts back to turf. However, the fairly useful hurdler Bailarico (nap) looks fascinating back on the Flat from what looks a favourable mark. All five of his wins over 1m6f-2m in this sphere have come on good or faster ground.
Let's Go Lucky has enjoyed a good spring on Polytrack and is the obvious starting point on last Monday's Chelmsford second off the same mark, with the return to 7f in her favour, but a course record reading 519487989 isn't the most inspiring at a likely short price. Maharashtra is less exposed than most, having spent the early part of his career pulling hard over further, but Hachert (nap), a turf scorer off a 4lb higher mark last summer, looks the one to be on for a yard among the winners lately.
