Top tipster Andrew Mount heads at the Flat fixtures at Bath and Pontefract for three bets on Tuesday. Check out his selections below, along with a pair of excelletn sign-up offers for nrew customers, just in time for the Grand National, this coming weekend!
**MY BOY FRANKIE – (3.30 Pontefract, 1pt each-way - 12/1)
Fountain Of Youth progeny tend to improve for the switch to turf and MY BOY FRANKIE could upset the long odds-on favourite Spycatcher in this 6f novice contest. Adam West’s gelding clocked a useful speed figure when runner-up at Lingfield on his latest outing, doing best of those to come from off the pace. I did think today’s run might be a handicapping exercise, especially as he drops in trip, but he’s the yard’s sole runner on the card and has travelled all the way up from Epsom. His trainer’s previous course runners have finished 17112 (3-5) for a profit of £12.75 to a £1 level stake at SP, with the sole unplaced horse a 33-1 shot on day two stablemates won (7-1 and 6-1).
**TOP ATTRACTION – 4.35 Pontefract, 1pt each-way - 22/1)
TOP ATTRACTION, another for sire Fountain Of Youth, was a 40-1 third at Thirsk last summer on his handicap debut before failing to stay 1m2f at Beverley. His three subsequent runs – all at today’s mile trip on the all-weather – included a Newcastle success when the only one of the first five home to race up with the pace. He bombed out at the same venue last time when failing to settle under restraint and, from stall 2, a return to more positive tactics could see him justify each-way support at a big price.

Newly-gelded Brian Meehan runners do well in handicaps, with seven of the 34 qualifiers scoring since 2015 for a profit of £14.00. That figure could have been a lot bigger had 16-1 shot Palavecino not made the running on the round course at Newcastle when a neck second at 16-1 (it still hurts!). If we throw in the non-handicaps in the same period (2-24, +£5.00) he’s made the frame (first four) with 29 of his 59 newly-gelded runners. He shaped with some promise when an 80-1 ninth of 13 at Kempton last time (finishing just behind the now 95-rated Rohaan) and looks set to improve now up in trip in this low-grade handicap.
