It's a four-meeting offering on Tuesday, with two jumps meetings and two on the all-weather across the UK and Ireland after Lingfield's jumps meeting failed a Monday afternoon inspection on their waterlogged track.

Southwell (12.20-15.50) gets things underway alongside Newcastle (15.40-19.45) on the all-weather while the jumps fare comes from Fakenham (12.33-15.33) and Limerick (12.25-15.55).

Our NAP runs on the evening card up at Newcastle and is tipped to complete a C&D hat-trick after overcoming some trouble in running last time.

Horse racing tips: Newcastle 7.45

Phil Kirby's runner BURROWS SEESIDE looks to gain a third course and distance success in a month and the lightly-raced three-year-old appears to have plenty going for him.

He had shaped with plenty of promise despite an SP of 250/1 in a novice contest here in September prior to making his handicap debut a winning one in mid-October, scoring with more than three lengths in hand on the field.

He was duly made 11/10 favourite for the follow-up attempt 10 days later and he obliged under Harrison Shaw in an apprentice contest despite a mid-race scare. They were outpaced briefly and lost a position or two, just as Lezardrieux was making a gainful move on the front end.

It meant that Burrows Seeside had plenty of ground to try and make up but, once in full cry, he wore down the leader and won with something in hand in all probability, the front pair well clear.

As such, he looks well enough treated from this new mark and with Graham Lee back on board, should be able to make it 3-3 since going handicapping around Gosforth Park.

Tip: Burrows Seeside @ 6/4 with bet365

Horse racing tips: Southwell 12.20

DARK SIDE PRINCE has really improved his lot since joining trainer Jessica Macey and can make it third time lucky around Southwell.

He had shown no compelling form for his previous yard in four starts but outran a price of 125/1 on debut for this trainer in a C&D maiden last month to finish third of seven. He confirmed that was no fluke by going a place better in a nine-runner contest early this month on his handicap bow.

Darragh Keenan appeared to have timed his challenge to perfection that afternoon, picking up the running late on, only for champion jockey Oisin Murphy to bring Lord Of The Glen to the boil in the nick of time and grab the spoils in the dying embers.

Dark Side Prince is only 1lb higher now and looks capable of scoring soon from this sort of mark.

Sunday's winner Ustath (5lb penalty to carry) and The Defiant - second over C&D 19 days ago - are both likely frontrunners and so there should be no shortage of pace on. 

That should suit Lewis Edmunds and if he can bring Dark Side Prince through with a similar challenge to his run here a fortnight ago, it may prove a winning one.

Tip: Dark Side Prince @ 9/2 with bet365

Horse racing tips: Fakenham 3.03

Despite fears of the dreaded 'bounce factor', MUILEAN NA MADOG gets the call to land this Class 5 handicap chase for Dan and Harry Skelton.

The nine-year-old had missed 613 days after leaving David Bridgewater prior to his stable bow at Lingfield (2m4f, soft) a week ago. He'd undergone a wind operation during the absence and, with the money down, (11-4fav) he looked set to deliver when Bridget Andrews sent him on in the closing stages.

He slowed into the final fence, however, and looked to have emptied the tank completely on landing as he finished only third. He'll be sharper for the run though, and it is notable Dan Skelton goes again quickly after that promising return, achieved off a reduced handicap mark on the back of that near two-year absence.

The short run-in at Fakenham will also suit him well and Muilean Na Madog should be further boosted by the ground this time (Good-good to soft in places).

Tip: Muilean Na Madog @ 6/4 with bet365
