Daily Mail tipster Sam Turner found a nice Fontwell winner yesterday and turns to the all-weather searching for further success.
SEAFORTH (Wolverhampton, 5.30) posted a terrific figure when scoring over course and distance last week and, if he’s in anywhere near the same form, then he may take some beating here.
Admittedly, the sparkling rating was achieved in a seller and the way in which the eight-year-old powered clear in the straight probably owed more to a zealous gallop set by the likes of Klipperty Klopp and Mans Not Trot which enabled those ridden with more patience to come to the fore late on.
Seaforth was the chief recipient of that frenetic early pace and he may well need another pace collapse today, but there are a number of prominent racers in opposition and that may enable the gelding to take his course and distance record to three from six.
Victory for LUCKY LODGE (Wolverhampton, 6.30) at Dunstall Park last time ensured that young apprentice, Harry Russell, retained his unbeaten record on the veteran (2-2).
The duo will face a stiff task resisting the advances of the in-form Mount Wellington who returns to the Midlands venue in good form, however he is likely to be well found in the market whereas we can back Lucky Lodge each-way.
Given that trainer Anthony Britain handles the horse (Klopp) that Mount Wellington narrowly beat last time, it seems a little significant he allows his 10-year-old to re-oppose and the selection appears to be holding his form pretty well this winter with the latest Newcastle win his best performance on the figures since early November.
SAM TURNER’S BEST BETS
Seaforth 2pts win @ 3-1 (Wolverhampton, 5.30)
Lucky Lodge 1pt ew @ 11-2 (Wolverhampton, 6.30)
