After yet another win yesterday, our third in a row, for our Next Best selection, Mrs Grimley, in the 2.02pm race at Southwell, we are back with more tips on every race from the UK and Ireland on Wednesday and check out the latest racing odds. The meetings from Newton Abbot, Hamilton, and Beverley all get underway in the early afternoon.
Meanwhile the remaining three racing from Wexford, Ripon and Warwick get underway in the late afternoon and evening and run through the night. The first race sets off at Newton Abbot, with the last race of the day on getting underway at 8.30pm at Ripon. We have selected a NAP and NEXT BEST bet for you, one from Newton Abbot and one from Hamilton, to add to your bet slip as well as racing bets and tips on the day.
Our Next Best bet comes from up in Scotland where we have sided with Nearly A Gonna to win this Class 4 Handicap over six furlongs. The 5-year-old gelding won last time out over the same distance, again in a Class 4, as a big priced 20/1 outsider at Carlisle just nine days ago. He seems to run well when active, so this quick turnaround should suit Nearly A Gonna. Runs off a mark of 68 which does look achievable for him. Phil Dennis takes the reigns for Tim Easterby today as Nearly A Gonna looks to make it back-to-back wins for the first time in his racing career.
