Tonight’s evening action is at Newcastle, with a seven-race card in prospect. We have analysed the racing to provide three key betting pointers that, when combined, produces a 44/1 treble – which is currently a best-price with Paddy Power who have a sign-up offer currently available on our free bets page.
For today’s remaining meetings at Redcar, Yarmouth, Chepstow and Galway, check out our free horse racing tips, which include selections for each meeting – including our Nap and Next Best bets of the day!
Long-Distance Traveller – Dreamweaver (5.30pm)
The GoReboot Handicap kicks off the action at Newcastle today, and this race sees a field of nine battle it out over an extended 1m4f trip. Ed Walker’s Dreamwalker makes the 283-mile jaunt from Lambourn to contest this handicap and the Mastercraftsman gelding rates as the one that they all have to beat.
A fast-finishing second when upped in trip at Lingfield last time out, he gets in here running off the same mark, and granted a stronger pace to aim at this afternoon – he can stamp his class on this field and gain the third win of his career.
Course Specialist – Home Before Dusk (7.30pm)
Arriving here with a 2-4 record at Newcastle – including a 6/1 win here in June – Home Before Dusk looks a big player in the Nutshell Apps Handicap.
Keith Dalgleish’s charge ran better than the bare result suggests in a 1m2f handicap here last time out. He is two-pound lower today, and Danny Tudhope (who has been aboard for both of his wins at this venue) takes the ride.
Trainer/Jockey Combination – Be Proud (8.30pm)
Danny Tudhope also holds leading claims in the Gainford Group Handicap – which is the final race on the card. His mount here, Be Proud, has finished a close second the last twice and now drops back to the minimum trip for the first time in his career.
Tudhope is currently operating at a 31% strike-rate at Newcastle in 2019, and when teaming up with trainer Jim Goldie here in the last four years – that is boosted to an eye-catching 38%.
