Nap of the day: best horse racing tips for the day's six meetings
Tuesday fancies from Ascot, Thirsk, Stratford, Beverley, Brighton and Sligo
Tuesday's best bets from the Racing Post'sunbeatable Spotlights team
The inaugural running of this event last year went to an unexposedsix-year-old and Sleeping Lion has a similar profile, in his case having scored on his debut for Roger Charlton at Kempton in April. With a solid course record he should give a good account of himself. Brilliant Light, Throne Hall and Arthurian Fable are others with strong each-way claims but the vote goes to Global Storm (nap), who ran so well at this meeting last year and seemed very well suited by stepping up to 1m6f when winning at Newmarket. The fly in the ointment is smart hurdler Saldier, who is hard to weigh up after an easy Listowel success but very dangerous on just his second Flat outing for his powerful connections.
3.55:Seas Of Elzaam
This doesn't look quite as competitive as the first division. Toussarok ran as though in need of the outing at Doncaster last time and with the outing under his belt he should fare better here, but despite his welter burdenSeas of Elzaam (nap) still looks the one to beat. He did it well under today's rider on stable debut at Catterick last time and will have no problem with this return to 7f.
1.50:Ronde De Nuit
There may yet be more improvement to come from Nye Bevan, who won twice this spring and now has cheekpieces fitted, but unexposed fillyRonde De Nuit (nap) shaped very much as though today's step up in trip will suit when scoring over 2m at Taunton in April and she gets the nod. Oxford Blu was a clear second behind a well-handicapped and well-backed winner on his recent stable debut, and is also considered.
The switch to turf has made all the difference with Key Look (nap), who'll appreciate the return to faster ground and is fancied to beat old rival Desert Dream again, despite a 3lb swing from Catterick. David O'Meara has two decent chances but both are drawn wide and Tukhoom has become expensive to follow, while the lightly raced Chillsea needs considering despite landing stall 14.
8.50:Keep Right On
The unexposed Bahia Star is bred to be useful and she may be up to defying a 6lb rise for her easy mile win here in April. That form isn't strong, however, andKeep Right On (nap) is an interesting alternative. While he's not matched his two-year-old form in two starts this season, he tanked through what looked a very useful novice event at Windsor last time and a 3lb drop in the weights looks generous. Back at 7f, and in a modest handicap, he can belatedly confirm his early promise. No Day Never and River Wharfe are also capable of playing a part.
Runner-up on both starts this season and beaten only narrowly,Divine Celt (nap)stands out in this company and is a confident choice. The locally-trainedAlice Miliganshould not be far away, andVischiohas a place chance following last week's good run over hurdles at Roscommon.
