Horse Racing Tips: Champion to strike on day one of Cambridgeshire meeting at Newmarket

SEP 22nd

It's day one of Newmarket's hotly-anticipated Cambridgeshire meeting on Thursday afternoon, while there's alternative racing from Listowel, Perth and Pontefract this afternoon, with a brace of early evening fixtures coming from Southwell and Chelmsford City. We take a look at all today's racing and pick out some of the most eye-catching best bets from a host of racing tipsters...

Breaking his debut at the third time of asking at Lingfield Park, Roger Varian's Open Champion then built on that with a creditable sixth placed finish at Haydock Park next time out, and the son of Postponed will attempt to kick on again on Thursday and land victory in the 16:10 at Newmarket. Proving extremely popular with our tipsters - including current naps table leader Expert Eye - the three-year-old has been napped by five of racing writers for today's event, where he lines up off a mark of 86. Dropped 1lb from that Haydock event, Open Champion will need to improve again, but the stable are in red-hot form and he looks potentially progressive and can bound to glory at Flat HQ today.

One of the feature races of the day at Newmarket today is the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes at 15:35 and there will be a red-hot favourite in the shape of Thunderous, who is an Evens chance at the time of writing, but The Score from Racing TV will take on that jolly with Ranch Hand, who is a 5/1 shot currently. The Score has been in marvellous tipping form this week and is bidding for a third winning nap in a row, and in Ranch Hand he has a contender that will make a return to the track after 467 days off, but was a horse that was competing in Group company prior his time off the track.

The Punt from the Racing Post is another tipster bidding for a hat-trick of winning naps and that tipster also heads to Newmarket today and has napped the 100/30 chance Captain Kane, who lines up for George Scott and Daniel Muscutt in the finale at 17:10, and the consistent three-year-old is bidding for a third win in four races and has to be a major player.

There's a fascinating renewal of the Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket at 15:00, and while only four two-year-olds line up three of them are vying for favouritism and the myracing tipster has napped the shock Chesham Stakes winner Holloway Boy, who failed to follow up that Royal Ascot win on debut when finishing second in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood, but Karl Burke's charge has to be a major player.

The other contender being napped in the event is the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Nostrum, who was a fine winner on debut at Sandown Park and shaped like he could be a real class act and Whistler from the Sunday Telegraph and Lee Sobot from the Yorkshire Evening Post fancy the son of Kingman to prevail at 15/8 in what should be a fascinating contest.

Veering away from Newmarket, Garry Owen from the Daily Record - who sits second in the naps table - heads to Perth's National Hunt card for his best bet of the day and he is backing the 2/1 chance Platinumcard, who runs in the 15:55 event, while Ian Gaughran from the Irish Herald heads to Yorkshire for his nap of the day and has picked out Corinthia Knight in the 17:10 race Pontefract.
