Horse racing tips: Newsboy’s Nap runs at Fontwell on Tuesday

MIDNIGHT GLANCE is fancied to land the hat-trick in the Christmas Offers At Champagne Piaff Novices’ Handicap Hurdle (1.35, NAP) at Fontwell.

Alan King’s charged has put in determined efforts to win two races at Plumpton this season, teaming up with jockey Tom Bellamy each time.

Switching to handicaps has unlocked improvement from the five-year-old, who clearly relishes plenty of give in the ground.

Up 7lb in the weights, the extra burden may not be enough to halt his progress, in a race of similar quality to his most recent assignments.

CAVE TOP is another runner on the card in good form and he can hit the bullseye once again in the Thank You To The Cisswood Team Handicap Chase (1.05, NB).

The fitting of a visor has brought out his best this term, with a two-length success on November 24 hinting he had a bit more in the locker.

Alan King trains Midnight Glance

Not so long ago he was winning off a mark of 122, therefore he should still be competitive 13lb lower than that here.

Uttoxeter hosts an intriguing Follow At The Races On Twitter Beginners’ Chase (1.15) which can go to the David Pipe-trained UMBRIGADO.

The highest-rated hurdler of the four-runner field, he ran a great race at Haydock last time, only finding one rival too strong after travelling with gusto throughout.

Imperial Alcazar was ninth in a different race on that card and looks tailor-made for chasing, while Northofthewall was leading when he fell at Aintree last time.

Both are useful rivals, but the selection has enough ability to repel them.
