Daily Mail tipster Sam Turner hit the bar with a couple of nice priced each-way Cheltenham selections yesterday and he has a couple of Fontwell handicappers to consider today.
Tom Cannon could cancel his gym membership if every ride was as taxing as partnering JIMMY (Fontwell, 1.20).
The son of Norse Dancer demanded all of his rider's efforts to score over course and distance last time, but he he possesses copper-bottomed stamina at this trip and it was interesting to note the form of that latest performance took a handsome boost when fourth-home Galtee Mountain won a Warwick handicap by six lengths on his next start.
Those that have a close eye on the figures reckon Jimmy's win last time was at least 7lbs better than he has previously produced and, providing that race hasn't left a mark on the seven-year-old, he looks a fair each-way bet this afternoon.
MARLBOROUGH SANDS (Fontwell, 3.20) has been a shade unfortunate to bump into two above-average novices this term since joining Amy Murphy and makes some appeal off a mark of 124 here.
Chasing home the likes of West Cork (a winner again since) and the talented Millers Bank have suggested that the Irish recruit is one to bear in mind for a handicap such as this afternoon's contest and, as one of the least exposed runners in the field, he makes plenty of appeal.
SAM TURNER'S BEST BETS
Jimmy (Fontwell 1.20) 1/2pt ew @ 6-1
Marlborough Sands (Fontwell 3.20) 2pt win @ 9-4
