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

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

NAP – ALBAFLORA @ 2/1 with LiveScore Bet3.10 Chester

Our NAP of the day comes in the form of this 5-year-old mare. We have selected Albaflora to win this middle race at Chester on Thursday afternoon.

Coming in off the back of a third an two second places finishes in her last three outings, this Ralph Beckett trained horse comes in boasting some impressive form and looks to be the pick of the field in this 1m5f84y Ormonde Stakes race.

Jockey Rossa Ryan takes the reigns this afternoon and is looking to claim Albaflora‘s first win since May 2021 when she won impressively at Ascot. Looks to be the one to beat here.

NEXT BEST – ACHY BREAKY HEART @ 13/2 with LiveScore Bet 2.15 Huntingdon

Our Next Best bet of the day comes in the second race of the afternoon at Huntingdon where we have selected Achy Breaky Heart to claim victory in this Mares’ Handicap Hurdle.

With two wins and two runner-up finishes in her last five runs, this 8-year-old has what it takes to win this 3m1f10y Class 5 Handicap. The good turf will help this Milton Harris trained horse, who is stepping back to the hurdles after a few chase runs. His last win did come in a handicap hurdle at Plumpton in October and she comes in super fresh having not races this year so far.

A great price and our Next Best pick. Here at SportsLens we think Achy Breaky Heart could do the business here.
