Horse Racing Tips: Maker and Benson clash at Sandown on Tuesday

MAR 8th

There's a relatively quiet day's racing on Tuesday as three meetings take place in the UK, and the action all kicks off at Newcastle over the jumps at 13:00. There's alternative National Hunt racing at Sandown, which starts at 13:50, with the Grand Military Gold Cup the feature at 15:30, while the solitary all-weather Flat action comes from Wolverhampton, and that seven race card begins at 17:00. We focus our attentions here on trying to point you in the right direction of a winner, and we have an array of top tips from a host of racing writers, and we pick out some of the more eye-catching ones here.

Today's racing tips come from Sandown, Newcastle and Wolverhampton.

One of the most intriguing races on Sandown Park's card is the handicap hurdle at 16:05, and two horses lining up in that event have proven popular among our tipsters. Jamie Snowden's Git Maker has been hugely impressive since switching to Britain and has notched up wins at Chepstow and Carlisle, and will go in search of a third win in a row today. Five of our tipsters including the likes of Mercury of the Daily Post and Rob Wright from The Times have put up Snowden's charge as their best bet of the day, and he's currently a 7/4 chance.

However, Git Maker will face a lively rival in the shape of Benson, who has been napped by three tipsters for the same event at 16:05. Dr Richard Newland's seven-year-old has a listed win on his CV from Sandown, so he has shown he can produce the goods there, and a huge positive for the 9/2 shot is that the naps table leader Farringdon has put it up as the best bet of the day.

The other popular selection among today's racing tipsters is the Dan Skelton-trained Greatest Star who finished third off a mark of 105 on his handicap debut last time out, and he still looks unexposed off the same mark today, and with three tipsters selecting him as their nap of the day in the 15:50 at Newcastle then he's worth keeping an eye on.

Steve Mullington has an excellent tipping record this season and sits second behind the abovementioned Farringdon with a tidy profit of £41.94, and he heads to Newcastle for his best bet of the day in the 14:40 event, and he's sided with the 20/1 chance Fethard Glory, who lines up for Lucinda Russell. Winless in six outings, he was last seen finishing fourth at Kelso, so he will need to produce a career best to score today, but is an eye-catching price.

A disappointing field of five go to post for today's feature race of the day, the Grand Military Gold Cup at Sandown at 16:30, and two horses have been napped for the event. The odds-on favourite Rolling Dylan was a winner last time out, and is a warm order for today's event, and has been napped by both Moorestyle of the Daily Star Sunday and The Scout from The Daily Express, but he could face a lively rival in the shape of Eragon De Chanay, Third at Kempton last time out, he had previously won at Wincanton, so Melissa Jones from The Mirror Online will hope the 11/2 chance can recapture that Wincanton form, and cause an upset in the showpiece event.
