Newsboy’s tips and Nap for Monday’s four meetings

ROCKETT MAN is fancied to stay unbeaten at five furlongs with a victory in the Get Your Ladbrokes Daily Odds Boost Handicap (5.30) at Wolverhampton.

Trainer Tom Clover gave the son of star speedball Equiano his first two outings over six furlongs – with Rockett Man returning fourth at Wolverhampton and fifth at Kempton Park.

My selection stepped back to the minimum trip for his third outing, in a Chelmsford City maiden on January 9, and produced a personal best with a length-and-three-quarter margin over next-time-out scorer Supercontango.

The British Horseracing Authority assessor has given Rockett Man a rating of 75, and Jack Mitchell’s mount has the potential to improve past that figure and win again.

Carlisle’s jumps fixture must pass an inspection at 8am, but, if it does, HART OF STEEL can keep his trainer Donald McCain’s good run going by landing the MansionBet's Proud To Support British Racing Handicap Hurdle (1.35).

Groundstaff are also due to check the playing surface at Plumpton, where FRANCKY DU BERLAIS gets the vote over market rival Notre Pari in the horseracingbetting.co.uk Novices' Limited Handicap Chase (2.50).

Newcastle’s card makes little appeal from a punting perspective but those anxious to get involved could do worse than RUBYTWO in the Quinncasino Mares' "Jumpers' Bumper" National Hunt Flat Race (2.35).
