Horse Racing Tips: Azhar well fancied to land Ascot spoils on Friday

JUL 22nd

It's an extremely busy day's racing across the UK & Ireland as eight meetings take place and the action all kicks off at Uttoxeter over the sticks at 13:00, while there's alternative afternoon racing at Thirsk and Ascot, with a quintet of fixtures coming from Cork, York, Down Royal, Newmarket and Chepstow. We preview all the action today and pick out some of the most eye-catching best bets from our army of racing tipsters that sit in our racing naps table...

There's set to be an epic renewal of the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot tomorrow afternoon, but the Berkshire track hosts some competitive action on Friday and we have several tips from one of the feature meetings of the day. Marcus Tregoning's Al Azhar has proven popular with our tipsters as three of them have tipped the 5/2 shot for the 16:50 contest. Two of those tipsters include Garry Owen from the Daily Record, who has notched up three winning tips on the bounce, while Alex Hammond is going in search of a hat-trick of winning tips and she's topped up Al Azhar, who was last seen finishing second at Salisbury.

Whistler from the Sunday Telegraph is another tipster heading to Ascot for their best bet of the day, and Whistler is backing the Gary Moore-trained The Whipmaster, who has racked up four wins on the bounce and is bidding for a fifth success in a row in the 15:40 at Ascot. Available at 6/4, at the time of writing, The Whipmaster has been given another 6lbs rise for a win at Windsor last time out, so will have his toughest test to date, but Whistler fancies Moore's charge to strike again.

An eye-catching card will take place at York this evening and one horse that has been napped by three tipsters is the 11/4 chance Poptronic, who was last seen winning in Group 3 company for Karl Burke, and that form charge lines up in the 19:25 event on the Knavesmire. Tipped by the likes of Glendale from The Scotsman and The Punt from the Racing Post, Poptronic will face some lively rivals including Achelois, who has been tipped by Newsboy from the Daily Mirror, and 16/1 chance By Starlight who has been tipped by Andrew Bladen from the Wolverhampton Express & Star.

Flying high at the top of the naps table is Expert Eye, who has an excellent profit of £41.68, and the star tipster is another that heads to York this evening for the best bet of the day, and Expert Eye has napped Roger Fell's The Flying Ginger in the 19:55 event, and that raider is currently a 13/2 chance. A course and distance winner, the four-year-old filly was last seen finishing third at Pontefract, and off the same mark of 84 this evening then Fell's charge could be a lively contender.

Melissa Jones from The Mirror Online sits in second position on £27.06 and she is attempting to reel in Expert Eye at the top of the table, and she heads to Uttoxeter's Jumps card this afternoon for her best bet of the day, and she is backing the 11/1 shot Debden Bank, who runs in the 14:40 race, and the Martin Keighley-trained eight-year-old is aiming to build on a third placed finish at Southwell last time out.

With competitive action taking place throughout the day there's some eye-catching big-priced naps and the 20/1 chance Bolly Bullet goes for glory in the 18:05 at Chepstow, and that is the best bet of Farringdon of the Morning Star, while The Irish Sun tipster heads to Cork's evening fixture and is backing the 16/1 chance Coffeemeanscoffee, who goes for glory in the 17:45 race.
