Daily Mail tipster Sam Turner has been in good form this week and fancies some tasty prices to make their impact on Trials Day at Prestbury Park.
HIGHWAY ONE O ONE (Cheltenham, 1.50) was a gallant runner-up in the novice handicap on last year’s card and could be poised to go one better here.
There was a school of thought that the selection was ridden too aggressively at Kempton last time out and the step back to today’s trip should suit a horse that relishes the New Course and will appreciate conditions.
His yard are in decent form at present and Jamie Moore got a good tune from the selection last time so could dominate his field today.
SUMMERVILLE BOY (Cheltenham, 3.35) is an intriguing runner stepping up to three miles for the first time and could be a sporting bet to lower the colours of Paisley Park who arrives searching for a seventh successive victory.
Backing a horse unproven at today's trip obviously carries plenty of pitfalls, however the selection boasts a good deal of class and his current double figure odds make him a chance worth taking given he has plenty of track form and excelled from the front in the Relkeel Hurdle.
LUST FOR GLORY (Cheltenham, 4.10) is afforded the chance to prove her comeback effort at Ascot behind Not So Sleepy was no fluke.
She finished two lengths behind a horse that turned a competitive Christmas handicap at the same venue into a rout and it is fair to say she has been campaigned rather oddly since.
The selection subsequently failed to cut much ice in a warm two-and-a-half mile contest at today’s venue when poorly positioned and too keen before she was sent over fences without success.
A return to the minimum trip and hurdles should see her take a hand in the finale if she settles a little better.
