Nap of the day: best horse racing tips for the day's six meetings
Tuesday selections from Catterick, Chelmsford, Ffos Las and the evening meetings
Tuesday's best bets from the Racing Post'sunbeatable Spotlights team
Genetique would be interesting if there was a market move on her British debut but the drying ground counts more in the favour of Street Kid. He should be involved but Entwistle (nap) looked promising when winning over course and distance last month and can make a good start to his handicap career.
Not many of these have solid recent form to their name, an exception being Almadrina who has finished second in all three starts since winning at Brighton. She is respected, but there is a question mark over her stamina whereas there is none with Arlecchino's Arc (nap) who has gained four of his five wins over course and distance. He still looks to be on a fair mark and the return here can see him recapture the winning habit.
The one that appeals most is Captain Haddock (nap), who came good with an emphatic win under Henry Main at Hamilton in June and a 6lb rise for that success looks fair. The other last-time-out winner Running Cloud is feared most, though Master Grey ran into some trouble before staying on well for third at Chepstow last time and looks interesting on his step back up in trip.
A few of these have claims but Poseidon (nap) really warmed to his task on his second start over fences last time out and with further progress likely, he could be hard to beat. Fine Brunello was in behind the selection that day and he may come on for that first run in 11 months. The other McManus runner, Cerberus, achieved a useful level of form over hurdles and he's another potential improver.
7.50:Jewel In My Crown
Loving Dash is a respected rival now entering handicaps off what looks a fair mark but ready preference is for Jewel In My Crown (nap), who was nicely clear of the remainder when no match for a sharp Stoute improver at Leicester a month ago. Golden Dove is third best.
Silk Tie's latest effort over course and distance can be marked up, with him faring best of those to race up with a good pace, but it came six months ago and he goes in first-time headgear tonight. Very few of the others can have cases made for them, but there was nothing wrong with Cable Guy's (nap) handicap debut off a 2lb higher mark last month, when he found the drop to 5f against him, and he looks the way to go.
