Tuesday's Nottingham best bets and racing tips: Thunder Flash going for three on the bounce

Planet Sport tipsters are in Nottingham for the afternoon meeting on Tuesday, August 9.

Expect a lovely day's racing in the East Midlands, and we've got a fistful of great tips to help you bash the bookies.

You can see all the latest racecards and results from Nottingham by using the Planet Sport live centre, but first let's have a quick look at Tuesday's selections.


14:15 (Nottingham) Treble Glory

14:45 (Nottingham) Roll It In Glitter (e/w)

15:15 (Nottingham) Gordons Aura

15:50 (Nottingham) Korker

16:25 (Nottingham) Essencial

17:00 (Nottingham) Thunder Flash

14:45 (Nottingham) Roll It In Glitter (e/w)

With plenty of fascinating debutants on show, the market may tell us more.

It may be best to opt for the slightly more experienced Roll It In Glitter, who hit the line with plenty of conviction when third at Newcastle last time out.

The son of Gustav Klimt gets the tentative vote, while Alaskan Point must be considered after a respectable effort when sixth at Ascot last month.

Fox Island was by no means disgraced when fourth on her debut and she completes the shortlist.

15:50 (Nottingham) Korker

If Korker can master his stalls issues, he will take some catching in the It Pays To Buy Irish EBF Conditions Stakes.

Karl Burke's runner has been slow to go in each of his four outings so far this term, with the three-year-old having proved a tardy starter last year too, although that did not stop him winning three times.

Korker has similarly managed to get his head in front once this term, coming from the back of the pack at York to claim a two-and-a-quarter-length verdict in a competitive heat in May.

That run inspired connections to head to Royal Ascot but he gave himself no chance in the Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes, conceding plenty of ground at the start before passing half the field and leaving his supporters to wonder what might have been.

The pattern continued at York on his most recent run too, but he did very well indeed to still finish third behind Nunthorpe favourite Royal Aclaim in a Listed heat - suggesting that he can make his mark in decent company granted a better start.

Obviously Korker is not a straightforward proposition, but there is no doubting his talent and this kind of level should be well within his remit.

17:00 (Nottingham) Thunder Flash

Thunder Flash arrives having won his last couple of starts at Leicester and the five-year-old has been found a decent opportunity to make it three on the bounce.

Nine Elms has been running consistently well of late and he is likely to enter the reckoning along with Divine Comedy, who got off the mark on her return to action at Newcastle.

Gert Lush is also worth considering.
