Horse Racing Tips: NAP, Next Best And Outsider To Follow At Today's Fixtures

York's star-studded Dante Festival begins tomorrow, but don't worry, there's still racing to get your teeth stuck into this afternoon.

Racing fans will be pleased to know that there are six fixtures to enjoy on Tuesday with races at Sedgefield, Roscommon, Beverley, Killarney, Wetherby and Ayr.

And as the build-up to York's three-day spectacle continues, our horse racing expert Robert Mann has selected his three best bets for the day to help build your kitty for the event.

With six stacked cards to choose from, there's a mix of jumps, flat and all-weather racing to satisfy all tastes - with Monday's racing kicking off from 1pm at Sedgefield and finishing at Ayr at 8.35pm.

Despite racing lazily, our nap on Monday bolted up at Catterick - can we do it again today?

Tuesday's nap is improving with experience and made it two wins from his last three runs over track and trip last month - and looks to take all the beating again today.

NAP (best bet)

Ayr 8.05

Tip: Dream With Me 6/4

Dream With Me looks like an improved performer with every run he has - and another bold bid looks assured this evening.

The four-year-old and son of Frankel, added to his form with a win at Wolverhampton in March, before seeing off a subsequent winner over course and distance just 15 days ago.

Despite remaining relatively unexposed, we expect Mark Johnston's charge to make light work of the opposition here.

Next best

Killarney 7.45

Tip: Sayo 2/1

Willie Mullins and Rachael Blackmore team up here with Sayo and he looks capable of landing a flat handicap off his current mark.

The grey was a faller over timber at Punchestown last time out, but had run really well to finish fourth in the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival the time before.

He was a winner on the flat in his native France and ran well when second in the Apprentice Derby at the Curragh last June - and with only a 2lb higher mark here, he should go very well.

Outsider

Wetherby 6.50

Tip: Maximum Risk 6/1

At the foot of the weights, Maximum Risk gets a tentative vote.

He produced his best effort to date when runner-up in a similar course and distance event last time and the winner of that race did the form no harm when finishing second four days later.

Taking that into account, Tim Easterby's three-year-old has a big chance if he runs anything like he did previously.
