Today the horse racing action comes both on the flat tracks and over the jumps this afternoon, with three meetings from England, one from across the border in Wales, one from up north in Scotland and two from across the Irish Sea in Ireland and Northern Ireland respectively. Here are our Friday horse racing tips and bets across every meeting.

The meetings from Newmarket, Thirsk and Ffos Las get underway in the early afternoon. Meanwhile the remaining four meetings from Tipperary, Hamilton, Down Royal and Goodwood get underway in the late afternoon/early evening and run through the night. The first race of the afternoon sets off at 1.15pm at Thirsk, with the last race of the day on getting underway at 8.00pm at Down Royal.

We have selected a NAP and NEXT BEST bet for you, one from Newmarket and one from Thirsk, to add to your bet slip as well as racing bets and tips on the day.

Horse racing bets & tips today: Newmarket, Thirsk, Ffos Las, Tipperary, Hamilton, Down Royal and Goodwood

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 – THUNDER LEGEND @ 2/1 with Bet UK4.54 Newmarket

Our NAP of the day comes from the last race of the afternoon at Newmarket Racecourse, where we have sided with Thunder Legend for trainer William Haggas to win this Class 3 Handicap over the six furlong distance.

This 3-year-old gelding boasts some impressive form, with a win, two second place finishes and four third place finishes in his last seven starts. Thunder Legend came runner-up last time out in a Class 3 Handicap at Haydock, running well and only getting beaten by half a length.

Today’s race is a step back in trip and will be the shortest run of her racing career to date, but if jockey Adam Farragher can get off to a good start and get Thunder Legend going, she has the pace to sprint home and keep on too.

NEXT BEST – GOOD EARTH @ 6/1 with Bet UK 2.55 Thirsk

Our Next Best bet of the day comes from the Thirsk race card, where we have selected Good Earth for trainer Michael Herrington to triumph in this Class 3 Handicap over the six furlong trip.

This 5-year-old is also in some quite impressive form, with three wins, three runner-up finishes and two thirds in his last eight starts. Good Earth came second at a huge price of 20/1 last time out at Ripon in a Class 2 Handicap over the same distance as today’s task, running ever so well and running on well inside the final furlong.

Is up 18lbs from that race, but has performed impressively off a higher mark than today’s 9st 6lbs, so the weight shouldn’t be an issue at all for Good Earth here. Has every chance of getting back to winning ways here this afternoon.
