The horse racing tips today come from Musselburgh, Wolverhampton and Yarmouth. Read our expert tipster’s nap of the day, next best and other selections

There are five race meetings on Monday to begin the new week and it's Flat racing all the way in Britain with Yarmouth (12.45-4.25) getting the ball rolling ahead of Windsor (1.40-5.40) and Musselburgh (1.00-4.30), while there's all-weather fare at Wolverhampton (5.00-8.30) in the evening.

The solitary Jumps racing meeting comes from Kilbeggan (2.15-5.50) in Ireland. Monday's NAP is an improving sort for the in-form William Buick on the turf at Yarmouth.

Horse racing tips today: Yarmouth 12.45

Recent Nottingham winner Aaddeey is fancied to take the next step up the ladder for the Simon & Ed Crisford stable in this three-year-old handicap over a mile and a half in Yarmouth's opener.

The New Approach colt attracted plenty of market support ahead of his Goodwood debut (1m2f, good) early last month only to show plenty of greenness when finishing second best behind the experienced and useful-looking Winter Thorn.

He learned from the outing however, and had no problems in justifying odds-on favouritism at Nottingham (1m2f, good) 15 days ago, doing his work in the style of a colt that will certainly handle the extra two-furlongs this afternoon.

He should be able to cope with the more testing ground he's set to meet at Yarmouth - and in William Buick he has a rider in cracking form and boasting 25 per-cent strike-rate at Yarmouth this season ahead of what looks a promising book of rides today.

Tip: Aaddeey @ 5/2 with bet365

Horse racing tips today: Wolverhampton 6.00

The defection of A Go Go - an impressive winner over C&D last Monday - leaves Anna Of Lorraine as clear market leader for this sprint but she'd have been a confident choice to score for Sir Michael Stoute and Hollie Doyle regardless.

The Dutch Art filly spent the early autumn running over 7f-1m but really looks set to come into her own now sprinting.

William Buick partnered her to a first career success over 6f here a fortnight ago, a race which she took by the scruff of the neck from the mid-point onwards, leaving the majority of her rivals flailing on the home bend.

Inevitable Outcome closed to within a half-length late on but the result never really appeared in doubt. She's rated 4lb higher now as she tackles 5f for the first time but is doing so in a lower grade and the Cheveley Park filly will take some halting.

Tip: Anna Of Lorraine @ EVS with bet365

Most of the runners in this sprint are exposed but not so Mick Appleby's Refuge , who has only had a total of six starts (four this year) and has shown signs of progress on his latest two spins on the all-weather at Newcastle and Kempton over 6f/5f.

Seven days ago at Kempton he wasn't helped by a tardy start and getting bumped around as a result but he finished the race off quite nicely to take third spot, behind only the front pair in the market.

He's dropped a couple of pounds in the ratings as a result ahead of this turf return and rates as one that could certainly pick up a contest of this nature under 3lb claiming rider Harrison Shaw, especially if they can get away alertly from a decent draw.

Northern Society won over C&D 15 days ago and rates a threat despite going up 6lb in the ratings while top-weight Boudica Bay is a three-time track and trip scorer. Both have clear credentials but Refuge is one for whom better things should be ahead.

Tip: Refuge @ 15/2 with bet365
