Nap of the day: best horse racing tips from the day's four meetings
Selections from Cork, Huntingdon, Kelso and Punchestown
Sunday's best bets from the Racing Post's unbeatable Spotlights team
Competitive contest to finish with and many have chances. More Wine Lilly is consistent nad has a good attitude. Ben Thomson is consistent and may have improvement in him, Steelers Appeal has a big chance if reproducing his Punchestown run, while Loup De Tallane is unexposed. Preference is for Temptationinmilan (nap) who continued his progress at Down Royal in late October and should take plenty of beating.
With the Tizzard team continuing to fire in the winners, Aki Bomaye (nap) is taken to build on a promising chasing debut and gain a first rules win. Next on the list is Shah An Shah, who could be well treated on a second attempt at chasing. Peur De Rien, Macfin and course specialist Lord Sparky are solid contenders who should be involved too.
There are major negatives in Big River's overall record but his record at Kelso and his performance here last time out are both entirely positive, so it wouldn't be a great surprise if this race were to prove one of his rare wins in recent years. Topweight Almazhar Garde is the youngster in this field and he's a promising staying prospect, but preference is for one of the old timers in Weststreet (nap) whose latest start (only his second for Gordon Elliott) suggested that he may well be about to recapture his former glories over long distances. Big River is feared most, with last year's winner Dino Boy fourth on the list.
1.25:Choice Of Words
A promising mare in bumper last season Choice Of Words(nap) made an effective transition to hurdling at Galway and can go to better things. She should be suited by this longer trip and is tipped to see off a likely challenge from Party Central who needs to brush up her jumping. The Getaway Star has had some limitations exposed but should not be ruled out.
