Horse racing bets & tips today: Haydock, Ripon, Yarmouth, Sandown, Limerick and Carlisle

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

NAP – KITEFLYER @ 11/8 with Bet UK 3.50 Ripon

Our NAP of the day comes from the penultimate race at Ripon where we have sided with Kiteflyer to triumph for Sir Michael Stoute and Richard Kingscote.

This 3-year-old colt comes here today fresh off the back of a win at Chepstow just 16 days ago. He ran a great race and won at a canter by four lengths in the end, showing just how impressive a horse Kiteflyer is. The time before that he placed at a big price of 18/1 at Newmarket, again running exceptionally well.

Just a 2lb rise this afternoon for Kiteflyer, who is looking to make it two wins from three starts and back-to-back victories as well. Here at SportsLens we are confident he will get the job done.

NEXT BEST – ABOVE IT ALL @ 11/2 with Bet UK – 4.15 Haydock

Today’s Next Best bet comes from the racing in Merseyside at Haydock Race Course, where we have selected Above It All to win the final race of the meeting.

Coming here this afternoon fresh off the back of a win, runner-up, a third and a fourth place finish in his last four starts, this 3-year-old boasts some fine form. He runs today of a ready 9st 6lbs, a drop of one pound from his last runat Wolverhampton last month, where he finished second but ran a great race and only lost out by  ahead.

Kieran Shoemark takes the reigns for trainer Ed Walker this afternoon, looking to give Above It All the second win of his racing career. Looks a great bet.
