Horse Racing tips: The 3 best bets for Friday’s racing

Which horse is Timeform's Nap of the Day on Friday?

Castle Quarter


NAP: Glenties – 18:30 Newcastle

Glenties was beaten by a potentially smart colt at Wolverhampton last time but he put plenty of distance between himself and the rest of the field, finishing nine lengths clear of the third.

He has shaped well on both starts – including over this course and distance on debut – and sets the clear standard on form. He remains open to improvement and should be difficult to beat.

NEXT BEST: Castle Quarter – 19:30 Newcastle

Castle Quarter produced a career-best performance when winning a handicap over course and distance last time and a 4 lb rise for that success seems fair.

The son of Zoffany improved significantly in first-time blinkers to register his second victory at this track and trip, responding well late on, and, faced with perfect conditions, he looks set to launch another bold bid.

EACH-WAY: Global Humor – 15:45 Newcastle

Global Humor has a habit of travelling powerfully through his races but not always finding as much as had looked likely. He again caught the eye with how he moved at Wolverhampton last time and this drop back to six furlongs from seven looks like a good move.

He has dropped to a career-low mark, so he could be worth chancing in an open handicap.
