Nap of the day: best horse racing tips for the day's six meetings
Selections from Doncaster, Galway, Goodwood, Hamilton and elsewhere
Saturday's best bets from the Racing Post's unbeatable Spotlights team
Mutanaaseq can prove best of the older horses but the three-year-olds may hold sway. Ubahha ran well behind a couple of fair sorts at Yarmouth and could progress again now handicapping, while Sound Reason is reliable and looks worth a crack at 6f.Captain Vallo (nap) won quite smoothly at Hamilton 16 days ago, however, and he is taken to defy the 8lb rise.
Despite his absence of a year,Arcticianeasily sets the form standard, while the maiden form shown this year byHandeland last year byChampion Greenis certainly respected. The one to be on though could be Sherkin Island (nap)who drops back to a mile after a very promising heavy ground debut at the Curragh in May and is likely to show plenty of improvement here.
Fresh has very good claims after his sterling effort in the Wokingham, although if there is a hole in his argument it's that he does seem particularly well suited by Ascot. Ejtilaab is intriguing on his first run for Charlie Fellowes, having won his only two 6f handicaps, while Meraas, with another year under his belt after running so well in this race last year, is also high up the list.Hurricane Ivor has looked good over 5f for William Haggas this year, though, and he also looks to have quite a bit of potential for better yet at this trip. He gets the vote ahead of Fresh and Ejtilaab. Great Ambassador will be suited if the ground happens to be good or quicker, while Justanotherbottle is preferred of the longshots.
The winner of a division of this race last year,Temper Trap (nap) shaped as if running into form last time and is clear first choice. Castle View still has untapped potential and is dangerous in a first-time visor. The in-form Chinese Spirit completes the shortlist.
Marlay Park is respected after a somewhat luckless defeat at Epsom but preference is forDeputy (nap) as he looked good on soft ground at Newbury two starts ago but just couldn't make up the leeway on a quicker surface there next time. He is likely to be ridden nearer the pace here and still has some potential off his current mark. Mabre may be best of the remainder.
A hot little race featuring some progressive four-year-olds. Top of the list is Strawberry Rock (nap), who had a next-time-out winner in second when scoring on his reappearance at Windsor, which makes a 4lb rise look lenient. The unexposed Godolphin contender Untold Story is feared most after failing to see out 2m4f at Royal Ascot, while Taqareer also warrants considerable respect.
