Today’s racing tips for Newcastle, Newbury, Musselburgh and Lingfield

SWISS CONNECTION can rack up a hat-trick and gain his third win over course and distance with a win in the Play 4 To Score At Betway Handicap (Div I) (7.45) at Newcastle.

Bryan Smart’s five-year-old, who is lightly raced for a horse of his age, has never won on turf, but has a healthy 3-9 strike rate on the all-weather.

All three of those successes have been over Gosforth Park’s five furlongs, with the second coming on November 20 as Swiss Connection accounted for Rockley Point by a length and a quarter.

My selection returned from 105 days off to follow up by a head from Gleniffer three weeks ago, with another who reopposes, Suwaan, one length back in third.

Despite meeting the runner-up on 1lb worse terms, Graham Lee’s mount is taken to reaffirm his superiority.

He got no luck at Wolverhampton last Saturday, and MY BROTHER MIKE is a player in the Bombardier British-Hopped Amber Beer Handicap (2.50) at Lingfield Park.

John Stimpson’s son of Bated Breath was attempting to follow up a win at Southwell a fortnight earlier when repeatedly stopped in his run when fifth to Pope Gregory, and should get much closer this time.

At Newbury, SANTON is the value alternative to favourite Coeur Serein jn Newbury’s BetVictor Racing Handicap Hurdle (3.15), while RATFACEMCDOUGALL gets the vote for the ITM Northern Lights Stayers’ Hurdle Series Final (3.40) at Musselburgh.
