Racing Tips For Today: Benbatl the star attraction

Benbatl features in our top three tips on Friday afternoon.
Benbatl features in our top three tips on Friday afternoon.

There's racing from six racecourses across the UK and Ireland on Friday, and we've highlighted three eye-catching selections from our Naps Table tipsters...

Viking Ruby - Uttoxeter 13:30

Tipster - Karl HedleyAngle - Uttoxeter specialist

Neil Mulholland's Viking Ruby was a shock 16/1 winner at Uttoxeter races in mid-July and the seven-year-old will return to the Staffordshire racecourse on Friday afternoon, and is a leading contender in the 13:30 contest. The selection of Karl Hedley, who sits second in the Naps table, Viking Ruby was unable to follow up at Market Rasen off a 4 lb higher mark, but he lost little in defeat that day and a return to Uttoxeter could see him taste more success, and he is our first eye-catching selection of the day.

Benbatl - Newmarket 15:35

Tipster - Five tipstersAngle - Classy Group sort

There's a fascinating renewal of the Group 2 Shadwell Joel Stakes at Newmarket races at 15:35 this afternoon as 2000 Guineas winner Kameko locks horns with the multiple Group-winning six-year-old Benbatl in a thrilling clash. The latter has proven to be the popular choice amongst our tipsters with five of them siding with the Godolphin raider, who was hugely impressive at Meydan earlier in the year, and if he can replicate that form at Flat HQ then he looks the one to be with, as he looks to retain the Joel Stakes crown he won imperiously 12 months ago.

Prince Alex - Haydock 16:35

Tipster - Rob Wright, The Times; Angle - Prolific winner

Rob Wright from The Times has been in sparkling tipping form this week racking up a trio of winners over the last seven days, and the in-form tipster aims to continue his fine form, and has picked out a prolific winner, who lines up in the 16:35 at Haydock races. Ralph Beckett's Prince Alex has recorded three handicap wins on the spin, and will look to notch up win number four this afternoon. Having won his first outing off a mark of 63, Prince Alex will run off 77 today, so will need a career best, but he's shaped like there's more to come and he is a notable contender in the 1m 6f 1y marathon.
