Sunday's free racing tips: five horses to back at Pontefract and Hexham
Sunday's best bets ranked in order of confidence by our top tipsters
Contact (4.25 Pontefract)
Beat some useful types on his seasonal reappearance and his latest effort when faring best of the hold-up horses can be upgraded. This step up in trip could unlock further improvement and he receives plenty of weight from each rival.
Gauntlet (3.55 Pontefract)
Below form last time at Salisbury but reportedly stopped quickly and that wasn't his true form. He has dropped 3lb in the weights since and is better judged on his two previous efforts, when he twice recorded RPRs of 78. A return to that sort of form on his first start over 2m2f might be good enough.
Katara (3.25 Pontefract)
Disappointed on her return at Goodwood in April but has been in better shape on the Al Bahathri of late and is expected to bounce back for Sir Michael Stoute.
Makes his three-year-old reappearance as a gelding after a progressive juvenile campaign and appeals as the least exposed runner in a competitive field.

Ash Hill (2.45 Hexham)
Finished a highly promising second on his chasing debut at Perth recently following a lengthy spell on the sidelines and can begin to make up for lost time.
