Horse racing bets & tips today: York, Sandown, Curragh, Chester, Killarney, Newton Abbot, Lingfield and Chelmsford

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

NAP – ROCKET RODNEY @ 6/4 with Bet UK 4.45 York

Our NAP of the day comes from the penultimate race of the final day of the Ebor Festival at York, where we have selected Rocket Rodney to win the Julia Graves roses Stakes over the five furlong trip.

This 2-year-old gelding boasts highly impressive form, with two wins and three second place finishes in his opening five racing starts. Rocket Rodney has raced in Class 1 company in his last three races and has fared well every time. He won the Coral Dragon Stakes at Sandown in July by 2 1/2 lengths impressively, and showed he is super quick of the five furlong distance.

Runs off a mark of 9st 5lbs today which is a career highest handicap, but this small rise in the weights should trouble Rocket Rodney one bit who is looking to give trainer George Scot his third win with this horse.

NEXT BEST – SOUL STOPPER @ 6/1 with Bet UK2.25 York

Our Next Best bet of the day is a relatively big priced outsider in the Melrose Handicap, where we have selected Soul Stopper for trainer Andrew Balding to triumph in this Class 2 Handicap over the 1m5f188y trip.

This 3-year-old gelding comes here fresh off the back of back-to-back wins. Soul Stopper won at Chester last time out and Salisbury the time before, both winning impressively by a combined 6 1/2 lengths. Last time out Soul Stopper romped the field at Chester, and if he can replicate that form today he has every chance of more success.

Is down 8lbs in the weights as this is a step up in Class for him, but Soul Stopper won at a canter last time and if he can show similar form today, there is no reason he can’t make it a hat-trick of wins.
