Today’s Racing Tips & Naps – Sunday 26 November 2017

There’s jumps racing in Britain and Ireland on Sunday, with meetings in Navan, Exeter and Uttoxeter.

We have tips for the three meetings, below.

Remember, the selections at the top are sorted by time order, and are based on our computerised ratings. They show a good profit in the place only or each way markets over longer periods, because they will deliver placed and winning horses at long prices, but not with a hugely high strike rate. Don’t expect a string of 4/6 winners – more likely a winner or two at 10/1+ or 5 out of 6 selections making the frame at a meeting.

The Top 4 Tips (Naps) which are shown at the bottom are where we’ve applied filters against today’s best rated, to sort the top four in order we feel they are most likely to come out on top today.

Good luck if you are going racing on Sunday.

Our top tip for Sunday is a great little each way bet in the 1.35 at Navan, where we like the Robbie McNamara trained Edification, who makes his handicap bow under the impressive jockey Robbie Power. This one is trading at prices in the region of 20/1, but would not need to be a world beater to take what looks an ordinary handicap on paper.

We like the form of this one’s second maiden hurdle, where, having led them round, didn’t quite stay on, but was beaten under two lengths into fourth. As a result of reaching the end of his tether, our stopwatch got a good read on this one’s level, and the opening handicap mark seems to be more than fair as a result. Entitled to be a little fitter for a couple of flat runs (one good, one not so good) if this one puts his best foot forward today, is a strong each-way bet.

Our next best for Sunday is Zephros Bleu. If this one gets back to the form shown when winning at Ffos Las in the middle of a pretty light campaign last season, has the talent to lift this relatively shallow Hanicap Chase. Is entitled to strip fitter after a comeback run down the field at this track a month ago, and interesting that connections have added another couple of furlongs, though the way this one stayed on and won easing down over just shy of three miles, suggests another quarter mile should be, if anything, of benefit.

Zephros Bleu is trained by Harry Whittington and will be ridden today by Harry Bannister at a price of 5/2. Has been backed during Sunday morning.
