Horse racing bets & tips today: Newbury, Nottingham, Wolverhampton, Cork, Tramore, Newmarket and Thirsk

Have a read to find our most confident picks of the day, as well as race-by-race selections for every race across the seven meetings today!

NAP – ZULU TRACKER @ 5/2 with Bet UK 2.35 Newbury

Our NAP of the day comes from the racing at Newbury where we have selected Zulu Tracker to win the Class 4 Handicap over seven furlongs in the third race of the card this afternoon.

This 3-year-old gelding looks in fine form, with two wins and a second place finish in his last three racing starts. Zulu Tracker won last time out at Newbury in a Class 5 Handicap, which shows he likes this track. The race before was another win for the Ed Walker trained gelding, where Zulu Tracker won in Class 4 company at Bath.

Zulu Tracker only faces a two-pound rise today, which shouldn’t be too much of a task for this talented racehorse. Looks the one to beat here for sure.

NEXT BEST – PONS AELIUS @ 7/2 with Bet UK3.25 Nottingham

Our Next Best bet of the day comes from Nottingham Races where we have sided with Pons Aelius to triumph in this Class 4 Handicap over the two-mile distance.

This 3-year-old colt boasts some seriously impressive form, with a win and four runner-up finishes in his last five starts. All of these races have been Class 4’s, so Pons Aelius is certainly one of the market leaders and knows he can run well at this level. Runs off a mark of 8st 12lbs which is one-pound down from his last race at Sandown two weeks ago.

Pons Aelius also has experience running at Nottingham Racecourse, which will stand him in good stead here this afternoon. Should go well.
