Excellent recommendation for better cover (3-3)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'excellent' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'recommendation for better cover' is the wordplay.
'recommendation' becomes 'tip' (I've seen this in another clue).
'for' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'better cover' becomes 'top' (synonyms. I am not sure about the 'better' bit.).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for tip-top that I've seen is " First-class".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
