Nap of the day: best horse racing tips for the five meetings on Thursday
Best bets at Wincanton, Down Royal, Southwell, Ffos Las and Chelmsford
Thursday's best bets from the Racing Post'sunbeatable Spotlights team
Desque De L'Isle suffered unfortunate interference behindNumitor (nap) at Ffos Las but the latter looks to have quite a bit of scope for improvement as a chaser and he can confirm the placings. Jackson Hill's jumping was a long way from textbook here last month so he did well to win cosily and anything like a clear round would make him a dangerous rival.
2.25:On Eagles Wings
Battle Of Actium stepped up to win a maiden hurdle here in December and there should be more to come from him, while Clondaw Secret also remains capable of better. However,On Eagles Wings (nap)put up an improved performance to win on his hurdles debut at Naas last month under a very competent ride. The step up in trip will likely suit and he can take beating.
A few of these have slipped to good marks but Drew Breeze andLion's Vigil (nap) come here in top form and the latter is taken to defy a penalty for last week's course-and-distance success.
A wind operation has proved successful forMadera Mist (nap), who improved to win at Cheltenham in December and can overcome an 8lb rise in this lower-grade event. Chasing debutante Roseisaroseisarose also drops down from Class 3 company today and is feared most. Rollercoster won easily over hurdles on her stable debut in November and is next on the list.
Spirit Of May has a wide draw and an inexperienced apprentice on board but he loves it around here and shouldn't be underestimated. Huraiz is another possible, while Last Page shaped well on his return and Edraak still has time to progress further. This should be run at a good pace though and it can play to the strengths of Ventura Lightning (nap), who is still feasibly treated despite a 3lb rise for his Newcastle success.
