Following today's racing and need some expert guidance? Or just fancy a flutter? Well, then there is no better place to come.

Each day, our horse racing expert Robert Mann will be bringing you his three best selections from across the card around the country.

From the bright lights of the Cheltenham Festival and Glorious Goodwood to a low-key evening meeting at Chelmsford City, we have all your racing tips and best bets covered.

There are six stacked cards to choose from on Thursday
There are six stacked cards to choose from on Thursday

With six stacked cards to choose from, there's a mix of jumps, flat and all-weather racing to satisfy all tastes - with Thursday's racing kicking off from 1pm at Lingfield and finishing at Chelmsford at 8.10pm.

Last week, four out of five tipped naps hacked up, including two 5/1 shots at York's Dante Festival meeting.

Yesterday's nap didn't make it into the winners' enclosure, however, our next best (6/4) bolted up, while our outsider (5/1) lost by the shortest of noses.

Thursday's nap is a lover of soft ground and should be incredibly hard to beat this afternoon.

NAP (best bet)

Sandown 5.55

Tip: Zinc White 6/4

Zinc White showed glimpses of ability as a two-year-old, but left that form well behind when making a winning handicap debut on return at Wetherby nine days ago.

There is serious promise of more to come over this trip it will take a big performance to stop him in his tracks.

With that said, Ralph Beckett's three-year-old - despite the penalty - should follow up with ease and the soft ground will almost certainly be in his favour.

Next best

Chelmsford 6.10

Tip: Mykonos St John 5/2

Mykonos St John looks a very progressive type and he is bidding to complete a hat-trick this evening.

Jockey Safe Osborne continues to impress in the saddle and she looks good value for her 7lb claim at present.

She gave Jamie Osborne's four-year-old a confident ride at Lingfield last time and there could very well be more in the locker yet.


Lingfield 1.00

Tip: Compass Point 7/1

Compass Point arrives here in good form after finishing third just over a fortnight ago.

The six-year-old has twice gone close on similar surfaces and is feared the most.
