It’s back – Racing returns in Britain today and we’re attempting to bash the bookies with some hot winners at Newcastle.

Our experts had no sleep at the weekend as they prepared to bring you the best Horse Racing Tips around the world this week, So buckle up, check out the tips and hit the betting buttons below to place your bets at the best price available.

WILD EDRIC (15.20 Newcastle, 6f handicap)

Seemingly goes best on artificial surfaces with two of his three career wins coming on the all-weather. You can forget the form of his last two runs, with the penultimate effort coming just six days after a decent effort, while he was forced to race wide around the bend at Wolverhampton on his last start.

Jockey Richard Kingscote will be back on board early and we might know our fate early with this bet as his best runs have all come when going from the front, so we can hope he pings the lids.

OAKENSHIELD (15.55 Newcastle, 6f handicap)

Clearly didn’t have his mind on the job and floundered on heavy ground when disappointing on his final start at Hamilton as a juvenile. But he was sent off a short-priced favourite on that occasion and clearly has ability judged on his debut fourth at Haydock.

Gelding operation should improve him and he’s also undergone a breathing operation so better things can be expected here.

BHANGRA (16.30 Newcastle, 5f handicap)

Four-year-old filly has been difficult to train given that she’s made only three career starts but she’s showed definite signs that she could be better than this 0-68 grade in time.

Came back from more than a year off the track to bolt up at Windsor in August last year and the third from that race went on to win his next two to boost the form.

Bhangra was seen just once more and there was an explanation for that run with the vet reporting that she had tyed up – the equivalent of suffering a muscle spasm.

With the rest of the runners looking exposed, she is the one horse in the race that could prove a lot better in the future.

ALIGNAK (17.-05 Newcastle, 1m4f handicap)

Made a striking impression when winning at Kempton in the autumn by four and a half lengths in September and interesting that Sir Michael Stoute has him out early this time around presumably to get him ready for some big summer handicaps.

The way he travelled for that Kempton win showed he has huge ability and he is one of only three rides on the card for champion jockey Oisin Murphy.

We might have to wait a while but he could be the best bet of the day.
