Our experts continue to study the form to bring you the best Horse Racing Tips around the world. So check out these tips and hit the betting buttons below to place your bets at the best price available.

NIBRAS SHADOW (15.20 Newcastle, 6f handicap)

A three-year-old handicap with most runners returning from lengthy layoffs. We’re going to side with the Ismail Mohammed-trained Nibras Shadow, who has shown ability in three career starts.

Came up against some really well-bred horses, including one Godolphin runner who was bought for $1.5 million dollars, when a close fifth at this track over 7f last time.

Shaped then as if the drop to this trip will suit and Mohammed has booked all-weather champion jockey Ben Curtis for the ride.

VENTURA REBEL (15.55 Newcastle, 6f Group 3)

Would have gone close to beating A’Ali with a clearer run in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot last season and followed that up with another luckless run when fourth in the Super Sprint at Newbury.

Sent off hot favourite on that occasion and evidently has plenty of ability, he comes out best at the weights and trainer Richard Fahey has already been among the winners this week so we know his stable is in good form.

COUNT OTTO (16.45 Newmarket, 6f handicap)

Last five runs have come on the all-weather with mixed results but reason for backing him is based on his last turf run, which came at this course in September.

Sent off a 22/1 shot for that 11-runner handicap, he seemingly ran against the bias with seven of the first eight home racing closer to the stands’ rail than Count Otto. That was also a class 2 handicap and Count Otto races at class 4 level today.

He’s off the same mark as his last winning one so there is plenty to like about his chances.

RATHBONE (17.55 Newmarket, 7f handicap)

Tends to go well fresh with form figures of 12 after breaks of around 100 days and seven furlongs seems to be his trip after two cracking races in class 2 handicaps at Newcastle this year.

Trainer Kevin Ryan has made a decent start since racing returned this week and a big run can be expected here.
