Thursday’s top horse racing tips and Chepstow Nap from Newsboy

SOME NIGHTMARE can prove every punter’s dream with a victory in the Secure It Handicap (3.40) at Chepstow.

To rack up a third career win, John O’Shea’s son of Dream Ahead must defy a top weight of 9st 10lb and a career-high mark of 60.

But the recent evidence is that Luke Morris’s mount, while having thus far produced no more than modest form, is going from strength to strength.

After a win over this trip at Wolverhampton in April, Some Nightmare was beaten over seven furlongs at Dunstall Park a couple of weeks later.

But he was back to winning form under Morris over today’s course and distance 16 days ago, beating Fard by a couple of lengths.

Despite racing on softer ground here, Some Nightmare is fancied to defy a 6lb rise in the weights at the current price of 100-30*.

At Epsom’s evening meeting, the back-to-form OTAGO is worthy of support under a penalty in the Wells Handicap (8.20).

Having had a peak BHA rating of 80 when in the care of Michael Bell, the four-year-old, now with Jim Boyle, exploited a fall to 64 over course and distance a week ago.

Otago, who beat Dourado by two lengths, has an additional 5lb to carry here, but that may not be enough to prevent the follow up.
