Horse Racing Tips: North and Poet fancied in same Market Rasen contest

NOV 17th

There are five horse racing fixtures taking place on Thursday and the action kicks off over the sticks at Newcastle at 12:00, while there's alternative National Hunt racing at Wincanton, Market Rasen and Clonmel. There's a solitary all-weather fixture from Chelmsford City this evening and we pick out all the best bets from our naps table here...

A fine fifth in the Grade 1 Sefton Novices' Hurdle at Aintree's Grand National meeting last season, Henry Daly's Bridge North was expected to kick on this campaign but could only finish fifth on his return at Aintree in October. Sure to improve significantly for that outing, the six-year-old has proven really popular with our racing tipsters as four of them have napped the 11/4 shot. West Tip from the Western Morning News and Jon Freeman from The i are two of the tipsters to have napped the Daly charge, who is an intriguing runner off a mark of 126 and he has to be a leading contender in the 15:05 at Market Rasen.

Taking on Bridge North will be the Tom Lacey-trained Pounding Poet, who is also challenging for race favouritism at 11/4 and that raider has also been napped by four tipsters for the 15:05 at Market Rasen. Picksfromthepaddock from the Norwich Evening News sits third in the naps table and is one of the four tipsters who fancy Pounding Poet to build on a win at Uttoxeter last time out, and the course and distance winner has to be respected.

Earlier on in the afternoon at Market Rasen, the Ben Pauling-trained Bowtogreatness is a 9/4 shot for the 14:30 contest and that charge has been napped by three tipsters including Melissa Jones from the Daily Express, while the other popular nap on Thursday runs at Wincanton. The Paul Nicholls-trained Don Alvaro is a red-hot 11/10 favourite for the 14:40 contest and will be looking to notch back-to-back wins this month at the track. Napped by three tipsters, Don Alvaro is the best bet of the likes of Andrew Mount from the Racing & Football Outlook and Lee Sobot from the Yorkshire Evening Post, who fancy the Ditcheat raider to strike again.

Moorestyle from the Daily Star Sunday has been in terrific tipping form of late notching 7/4 and 6/1 winners from the last two naps and that has rocketed the tipster up to second place in the naps table, and the form tipster heads is backing Wilde About Oscar in the 15:05 contest.

Still leading the way at the top of the naps table is Andrew Bladen from the Wolverhampton Express & Star and he has napped the 9/1 shot Fakir in the 12:55 at Wincanton. The Milton Harris-trained seven-year-old was last seen finishing last of five in a hot race at Sandown Park, but today's contest appears a little bit easier on paper, however, he will need to improve significantly.

Spotlight from the Racing Post is another tipster looking for a third winning nap on the bounce and that tipster heads to Newcastle for the best bet of the day and is backing the 2/1 shot Fatique De L'isle in the 13:38 race, while Glendale from The Scotsman heads to Wincanton this afternoon to try and land a third winning nap and is backing Cap Du Mathan in the 12:55.

The Clonmel Oil Chase is a fascinating Grade 2 event and four go to post and the one to beat is the Willie Mullins-trained Blue Lord, who is a 2/1 chance for the 14:53 event, and is the best bet of The Brigadier as the Closutton inmate aims to enhance his Cheltenham Festival claims with a win.
