Today’s top newspaper tips come from five of the six meetings available, as tipsters struggle to find a real stand-out across the days cards, with our top choice attracting just three experts attention, such is the varied opinion for Thursday’s racing. So check out the days top five most popular newspaper tips below, along with the best odds available.
Strong favourite to make it three in a row, having switched to the polytrack with huge success so far. Won as a 20/1 shot in the early part of November, then followed on with another win twenty-three days later. Runs 5lbs heavier since those wins, while a shorter trip arguably raises mild concerns, but realistically should be in the box seat as they head to the line.

Despite dropping down the levels as he has got older, the seven year old made light work of his opponents when leading all the way and winning at Ludlow last time out, in a dominating eight length win on soft ground. Has won twice on today’s heavy conditions and is also 3lb ahead of the handicapper under penalty. Has a great opportunity for a double.

Won a conditional at Kempton last time out, showing and impressive fighting spirit, when rallying to take the victory. Has won three and placed twice over the 1m 7f distance, while a handy 4lb advantage over main threat Scaramanga could swing the balance.

After some struggled in previous races, a lenient handicapping mark has since seen him finish second at Fontwell and winning at Plumpton last time out a fortnight ago, staying on to win in the closing stages. Goes up 4lbs for this trip, but based on current form and favourable conditions should mount another strong challenge for victory.

A frustrating horse to back, epitomised by a tenth placed run at Nottingham back in October, followed by a victory over course and distance last Friday. Winning jockey Paul Mulrennan is back onboard once again and if he can get the best out of this five year old once more, then they will be in the mix for the win.
