Horse Racing Tips: Friday's best bets from Ascot and five other meetings

SEP 30th

All eyes may head to France at the weekend with the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe taking centre stage, but we focus our attentions on Friday's racing and there are six race meetings taking place in the UK & Ireland today and it all kicks off at Gowran Park at 13:35. There's alternative racing at Fontwell, Hexham, Ascot, Newcastle and Dundalk and we preview all the racing here and pick out some of the most popular and eye-catching bets from a host of racing tipsters...

There's some classy action at Ascot on Friday.

A winner of the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot earlier in the season, Charlie Appleby's Secret State will return to the scene of his biggest success on Friday and the Godolphin is a red-hot 11/10 favourite for the Listed Noel Murless Stakes at 15:45. Proving the most popular selection amongst our racing tipsters, the likes of second placed tipster Garry Owen from the Daily Record and Templegate from The Sun are among the five tipsters napping Secret State, who was last seen finishing second in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York.

Run over 1m 6f 34y, the Noel Murless has proven the most popular race amongst our racing writers and four tipsters - including Ian Gaughran from the Irish Herald - have napped the 8/1 chance Lionel, who will look to bounce back from a last placed finish in the Irish Derby, while another three tipsters have napped the Marco Botti-trained Giavellotto, who is a 7/2 second favourite and is looking to build on a fine third placed finish in the St Leger at Doncaster earlier this month.

Clive Cox's Lethal Nymph was last seen narrowly edging out Mums Tipple when the pair clashed in an Ascot handicap at the start of September, and the Cox raider returns to the Berkshire track again for the 16:20 contest. Catching the eye of three tipsters including the likes of Lambourn from the Racing Post and Dean Kilbryde from the East Anglian Daily Times, the Cox raider is a 4/1 chance to strike gold once again. Paul Kealy from The Weekender is taking that charge on with Silent Speech, who is a 7/2 chance for the same event, while Jim Delahunt from the Scottish Sun is backing the 8/1 chance Aleezdancer in the same competitive event.

Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Odds

The form tipster in the naps table is Picksfromthepaddock, who is bidding for a third win on the bounce on Friday and that tipster is backing the 22/1 outsider Lord Rapscallion in the 14:00 at Ascot, and the Stuart Williams-trained raider is looking to record a first win in over two years, so it's going to be a tough ask.

Expert Eye remains at the top of the naps table with a profit of £47.46 and the high-flying tipster heads to Dundalk's all-weather card for his best bet of the day, and Expert Eye is backing the 6/4 chance Cairo, who lines up in the 19:00 event. The Aidan O'Brien-trained colt was a winner last time out and broke his maiden tag at the second time of asking, but will face a sterner test today as he steps up to Listed company.

For those punters looking for some big-priced tips on Friday can head back to Ascot for the 16:55 event and follow Michael Bell's Baltimore Boy, who is a 25/1 chance for the finale and is the best bet of Newmarket from the Racing Post, while over at Newcastle this evening, Andrew Mount from Racing & Football Outlook is backing the 22/1 shot Lezardrieux in the 20:15 race at the north east venue. A course and distance winner, the Grant Tuer-trained raider was victorious two starts at Catterick, but disappointed last time out, so will need to bounce back to form here.
