Fortunatus of the Sheffield Star has been in tremendous tipping form this week and is bidding for a third winning nap on the bounce, and the form tipster has put up the Aidan O'Brien-trained Cleveland as the best bet of the day in the Chester Cup at 15:15. Currently a 6/1 chance, the Ballydoyle raider has proven popular for the staying contest as four tipsters have napped the O'Brien raider for what looks a thrilling renewal.

Other eye-catching selections for the Chester Cup include the John Queally-trained Arcadian Sunrise, who is an 8/1 chance, and is another napped by four tipsters including Newsboy from the Daily Mirror and Ian Gaughan from the Irish Herald, while Hugo Palmer's 9/2 market leader Solent Gateway is another napped by four tipsters. Andrew Bladen from the Wolverhampton Express & Star and Matt Polley from the Ipswich Star both sit in profit in the naps table, and they are two of the quartet of tipsters to have put up Solent Gateway as the nap of the day.

Expert Eye from On The Nose is the current naps table leader with a fine profit of £33.05 and the form tipster looks elsewhere at Chester for the best bet, and they opt for the Venetia Williams-trained Bellatrixsa, who is a warm 5/2 shot for the 16:55 contest, and the five-year-old mare was last seen finishing second over Jumps at Chepstow.

Other eye-catching naps at Chester include the 6/1 chance Heart Of Soul, who is the best bet of RP Ratings from  the Racing Post, and that contender lines up in the 16:20 at Chester, while another notable selection on the Roodee is 11/2 chance Revich, who is Jon Freeman's best bet in the 13:30 event, which kicks off the action at the north-west track.

Ascot kick off a couple of days of quality Flat action with the Victoria Cup the showpiece event tomorrow, but there are some interesting tips for today's action at the Berkshire venue and Lambourn of the Racing Post has napped a 25/1 chance for the 17:40 race. Havana Goldrush was last seen finishing fourth at Kempton Park, but the three-year-old has already tasted victory twice during his fledgling career and Lambourn fancies the Havana Gold colt to cause a shock in the final race on the card.

Richard Hannon's newcomer Immortal Beauty is a half-sister to a few winners and she will look to kick off her career on a winning note and she is an eye-catching 4/1 chance for the 14:50 at Ascot, and is the selection of Picksfromthepaddock, while another Ascot selection on Friday is 7/2 chance Tylos, who runs in the 16:00 event and is the selection of Newmarket from the Racing Post.

Jason Heavey from The Star veers away from the afternoon action and heads to Nottingham for their evening card, and that tipster has picked out Percy's Lad for the 19:40 race, and that 2/1 chance looks a tough nut to crack, as he looks to defy a penalty for a win at Yarmouth last month.
