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 seven stacked cards to choose from this afternoon
There are seven stacked cards to choose from this afternoon

With seven stacked cards to choose from, there's a mix of jumps, flat and all-weather racing to satisfy all tastes - with Friday's racing kicking off from 1pm at Haydock and finishing at Catterick at 8.50pm.

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

Yesterday's nap (6/4) and next best (5/2) both romped home in style to continue our sizzling form - and we have two more bulletproof selections for you this afternoon.

Friday's nap comes off the back of a game win at Wolverhampton last time out and will look to take all the beating again.

NAP (best bet)

Haydock 3.50

Tip: Hoodwinker 7/4

Hoodwinker attracted a fair bit of support on debut, but she was outpaced and ran green before flying home in the closing stages.

She stepped forward again when runner-up in France before appreciating the step up in trip to make the breakthrough last time.

While the form of that run is nothing special, she almost certainly has more to offer and looks well placed to follow up.

Next best

Goodwood 2.15

Tip: Ready To Venture 2/1

Given William Haggas has handed Ready To Venture an Irish Oaks entry, connections must be expecting a big run here.

Her form is certainly useful given she was only beaten a length and three-quarters by Creative Flair at Ascot on return.

She will strip fitter for the run and with further improvement to come as her stamina is drawn out, this looks like a good opportunity for her to win again before potentially going on to better things.


Haydock 2.05

Tip: Ventura Diamond 6/1

Ventura Diamond was just behind Last Empire, the favourite in the race, at Nottingham 13 days ago.

She ended 2020 with a 6f Newmarket listed win on heavy ground, so the testing conditions today shouldn't be a problem.

Stands a solid chance and should at least hit the frame.
