Horse Racing Tips: Monday's best bets at Hexham, Ludlow and Newcastle

MAR 28th

It's a relatively quiet start to the week's racing with three fixtures taking place across the UK on Monday, and the action all begins at Hexham over the sticks at 13:00, while there's alternative National Hunt racing at Ludlow from 13:45. The solitary all-weather Flat meeting will be at Newcastle, which starts at 17:30 and goes right through until 20:00. 

We preview all today's action here and pick out some of the eye-catching tips from a host of racing writers, as they all look to start the week off on a winning note.

A former Grade 2 winner for Willie Mullins, Real Steel has struggled to recapture that sort of form in recent times and a switch to the yard of Paul Nicholls will look to revitalise the nine-year-old. A current 13/2 shot for the 15:30 at Ludlow, the nine-year-old Ditcheat inmate has proven very popular among our racing tipsters as three of them including the likes of Paul Kealy from The Weekender and Andy Morris from The Sport Report have put the former class act up as their best bet of the day.

The most popular nap of the day is Bless Him, who is a 2/1 chance for the 19:00 at Newcastle, and the David Simcock-trained raider is the best bet of five tipsters on Monday. One of those napping the former Royal Ascot winner is Farringdon from the Morning Star, who is currently sitting second in our naps table and is less £2 behind the leader Steve Mullington, who has napped Midnights Legacy (11/10) in the 14:55 at Ludlow.

Nicky Henderson's Grand Luna will be one of three runners lining up in the 16:05 at Ludlow, and after a brace of second placed finishes the Seven Barrows inmate will look to go one better and the six-year-old has proven extremely popular among our tipsters, as a whopping 11 of them have put up Henderson's charge as the best bet of the day at 11/10.

For those punters looking for a bigger priced nap today can side with the Adrian Nicholls-trained Capall Mear, who is a whopping 25/1 outsider for the 20:00 at Newcastle, and is looking to build on a disappointing juvenile campaign. The selection of Andrew Mount from The Racing Football & Outlook the Zoffany filly drops down in trip and lines up off a mark of 59, so is worth watching in the betting.

Others that catch the eye at big prices are the Iain Jardine-trained Rose Bandit, who is a 16/1 chance for the 19:30 at Newcastle, while 12/1 chance Thin Lizzy will take on the aforementioned Capall Mear in the 20:00 at Newcastle.
