Sam Turner's Best Bets BlogQUEEN’S MAGIC (Chepstow, nap, 1.05) can be considered unlucky in her run at Cheltenham last time in a well-contested mares' event when trying to come with a run on the congested stands' rail.

Monday’s contest represents a marked drop in class and she can take advantage providing she enjoys a clearer run. Connections also have her entered at Doncaster on Wednesday, which suggests they may also feel the daughter is well handicapped and ready to strike.

Supporting the Irish raider TACEEC (Wolverhampton, nb, 4.15) takes a small leap of faith as he hasn't contested today's trip since running a couple of times in Irish maidens over seven furlongs.

He made his debut in handicaps at Dunstall Park on Friday evening over the extended nine furlongs and wasn't disgraced in being beaten nearly four lengths by Diamond Reflection. Having watched his run style closely, a drop back in distance and the prospect of a more strongly-run race could be the catalyst to a first career victory as he didn't quite seem to get home and finish his race off last time.

RED STRIPES (Wolverhampton, 5.15) is solid and consistent over course and distance and went well for his inexperienced rider last time. Now on his 94th run, the seven-year-old is yet to win here but boasts the best four figures in this lowly but competitive contest and should be bang there at the death.
