Sam Turner's Best Bets BlogPERFECT GRACE (Bath, 6.00) made a bold bid to win on her handicap bow over course and distance last Wednesday and is fancied to go one better this evening.

Light on highlights with her first three runs in novice company on the all-weather, the Bated Breath filly returned from a 137-day break seven days ago and gave her all against a well-backed winner. At one point it looked as though she would prevail but Hayley Turner didn’t give up on the favourite and over-hauled the selection close home.

Perfect Grace handled the step up in trip on firm ground well and, now straighter for the experience, should prove hard to beat in a distinctly average handicap.

SONNET ROSE (Yarmouth, 5.20) also makes a quick return to action after being narrowly denied over course and distance.

The mare had been plugging away without success in better races this year but looked happier dropped into Class 6, basement level six days ago. Unfortunate to bump into a heavily odds on favourite, she nonetheless gave the winner a hell of a fright and a repeat effort can see her victorious in this company.

STRONSAY (Catterick, 3.30) has recently been threatening to add to his sole victory and drops back in class this afternoon.

He looked threatening when last seen over course and distance in a near £7,000 contest but failed to go through with his challenge at the business end of the race. He boasts - if that is the right word - a second and third place finish from three visits to the North Yorkshire venue and, with cheekpieces utilised for the first time, could better those stats.
