Daryl Carter’s Best Bet (Tuesday, May 17th)

Daryl Carter, GG Tipster

Our top tipster Daryl Carter has picked out three selections for Tuesday, with a pair of runners at Nottingham and a pick at Brighton this afternoon. Check out his thoughts on his sole fancy below, alongside Bet365‘s new customer offer of Bet £10, Get £50 In Free Bets.

Odds correct at time of publishing.



FANTASY NAVIGATOR – 2.10 Nottingham – (0.5pts each-way 25/1 bet365, 22/1 generally)

Two interesting runners in this contest that I want to have a stab with, FANTASY NAVIGATOR represents the winning trainer of this event in 2016 and 2017, and this is his first entrant since. The owners have two syndicates and while this one – Fantasy Fellowship – are yet to have a winner from seven runners, their other – Fantasy Fellowship B – has a 30% strike rate at this Nottingham venue.

This has clearly been the plan for their improving three-year-old, who was a steady improver at two and returned from a 180-day break and a gelding operation when a never-nearer ninth at Chelmsford. He makes his handicap debut today off a mark of 65 and is fitted with a first-time hood. He could easily take a good step forward, and at a big price he is worth a small chance.

KING OF JUNGLE – 2:10 Nottingham (1.5pts win – 7/2 Will Hills, 10/3 generally)

KING OF JUNGLE went straight into the tracker after his run at Thirsk, and today looks like a good opportunity for him to build on that first effort on turf. He stuck to the task well despite looking green under pressure, and he finished with running left at the line over five furlongs there.

The form of that race has worked out well, with the fourth winning twice since and is rated 15 pounds higher, while the winner was narrowly touched off up in class as was the third. This is a drop into class 4 company today, and a step up in trip; both look positives to his chances.

He was a cosy winner at Kempton on debut before racing too wide at Wolverhampton next time, and he looks highly progressive.

LEROY LEROY – 4.00 Brighton (2pt win 8/1 bet365, 7/1 Betfair & Paddy Power)

This is an extremely poor race, and outside of the course specialist Junoesque, it’s hard to make a case for any runner other than LEROY LEROY, so he should take a world of beating in what is effectively a 0-68 – and the 68 rated horse Mitigated Risk is yet to earn that rating.

The selection shaped well at Windsor on his latest outing when denied a clear passage, and Hollie Doyle was fair easy on him when not giving him the best of rides. That was his first flat start since running over hurdles, and he is entitled to improve for that outing.

Other than his latest run at Windsor, he was last seen in a good class 3 event at Epsom and before that chasing home Noble Masquerade at Windsor. On his day, he is far superior to these rivals, so in the hope that the blinkers continue to work and the step up in distance is in his favour, he gets a confident vote to score with connections having found a good opening.
