Horse Racing Tips: Opera to hit the right tune at Nottingham

OCT 5th

We bagged a 100/30 winner in Tuesday's column, so we shall attempt to maintain the winning form on Wednesday as we preview the four meetings taking place in the UK & Ireland. The racing begins at Navan at 13:15, while there's alternative action at Nottingham, Sedgefield and Kempton Park and we pick out some of the most eye-catching naps from our host of racing writers in the naps table...

Jane Chapple-Hyam's Opera Ghost produced a much improved performance on his third start at Sandown last time out in novice company, as at 125/1 the huge outsider finished a sparkling second, and the two-year-old will attempt to go one better this afternoon when lining up in the 15:50 at Nottingham. Proving the most popular nap of the day, Opera Ghost has been been napped by five tipsters including the likes of Marlborough of the Daily Telegraph and Alex Hammond of Sky Sports Racing, and at 4/1 the Chapple-Hyam raider has to be respected.

The Duke from The Yorkshire Post is the form tipster in the naps table as the red-hot tipster has knocked in three winning naps on the bounce and is taking on the aforementioned Opera Ghost in the 15:50 contest as he looks to land the four-timer. The Duke has napped the Charlie Fellowes-trained Shahbaz for the event - a race he is 5/1 for - and the four-times raced maiden is looking to break his duck and was last seen finishing fourth at Doncaster.

Nottingham has proven popular with our tipsters on Wednesday as the Kevin Ryan-trained Shaladar has been napped by four tipsters for the 16:20 contest at the east midlands track, while at 17:30 the Clive Cox-trained Ascending has been napped by three tipsters, as that 11/2 chance aims to improve on a second placed finish at Sandown last time out.

Over at Kempton's all-weather fixture this evening, James Fanshawe's Willem Twee has caught the eye of three racing writers and the 5/1 chance has to be respected in the 19:30 contest, as the son of Ribchester bids for a fourth win in five races in a fascinating conditions stakes.

Expert Eye remains top of the naps table with a profit of £44.84 and he's another tipster that heads to Nottingham for a best bet of the day and he will take on the aforementioned Ascending in the 17:30 race as Expert Eye is backing the 12/1 chance Dal Mallart, who is looking to bounce back from a disappointing showing last time out for Alan King.

For those punters looking to kick off the day on a winning note then they could side with The Score from Racing TV, who has napped the 3/1 shot Platinum Prince in the 13:30 at Nottingham, while in the same event Farringdon from The Morning Star has taken a real chance by napping 20/1 outsider Carlos Felix.

There's National Hunt action at Sedgefield on Wednesday and Melissa Jones from the Mirror Online fancies the Evens favourite Thermusa to deliver in the 16:00 race, while earlier in the day Luke Tucker from the Cambridge Evening News is backing the 7/2 shot Lucky Robin in the 15:25 race, as that charge looks to build on a third placed finish at the track last time out. One final eye-catching nap from the northern Jumps track is Joie De Vivre, who is an 11/4 chance for the 14:15 race, and that contender is napped by Ian Gaughran from the Irish Herald.
