Nap of the day: best horse racing tips for Friday's five meetings
Selections from Dundalk, Exeter, Lingfield, Warwick and Wolverhampton
Friday's best bets from the Racing Post'sunbeatable Spotlights team
On the evidence of an encouraging second placing on his handicap debut it looks as if Joseph O'Brien's Port Lockroy (nap), who had shown little in his three maiden outings, can capitalise on a low mark. Pineapple Express heads a list of dangers which also includes last-time-out winner Never Mistabeat and Dande, whose last two runs have been quite promising.
2.00:Storm Force Ben
Preference is for Storm Force Ben (nap), who ran well behind a progressive mare over course-and-distance last month and remains well handicapped up just 3lb. That form looks very strong judged on the winner's subsequent performances, including a good effort at Grade 2 level. Second choice is potential improver Elmdale, ahead of Wouldubewell and the selection's stablemate Shantou Sunset.
Hunters Step and Broughtons Flare both make some appeal but Mercurist (nap), ran much better than the result would suggest here on Saturday and still looks very well treated so he can take full advantage of the return to 1m. Maazel finished ahead of the selection on Saturday but he'll do well to confirm the placings.
A classy handicap. Champagne Court (nap), has had a disappointing season thus far but, back under his optimum conditions and in first-time cheekpieces, he could easily outrun his odds. Precious Cargo is another who looks fairly treated on the best of his novice form, and it bodes well that he's won straight on the back of his two previous wind operations. Espoir De Guye is next best.
7.15:Raise The Roof
Although Raise The Roof (nap), failed to justify favouritism on her debut at this course, she showed more than enough after clipping heels and meeting trouble to suggest she can win a race of this nature, especially as the longer trip is likely to suit. That form has worked out well and she's taken to beat the fairly reliable yardstick Greystoke and recent course winner Flyin' Solo.
