Top tipster Sam Turner is a regular on Racing TV and a proponent of speed figures and sectional timing. Here are his best bets for the day’s action
Final Song and Stylistique could be the two to concentrate on in the Group 3 Oh So Sharp Stakes with narrow preference for the former who is proven with cut in the ground.
The selection must show that a step up to seven furlongs is the right test for her, but she should love conditions and connections have purposely kept her back for an autumn campaign. Her early season form certainly suggests she up to this level and the decision to give her a break should ensure she is fresher than most today.
There were shades of Frankel’s brilliance at Newbury last month in the form of his talented daughter Quadrilateral (Newmarket, 3.35) and it will be fascinating to see if she truly is Group 1 class today.
Victory in this afternoon’s bet365 Fillies Mile with a potentially top-class performer would go some way to erasing Sunday’s painful defeat of Enable for the Juddmonte Farms operation and the beautifully-bred chestnut filly appears to have the class to match her pedigree.
She simply powered clear of her six toiling rivals on her latest start to score by upwards of nine lengths in the manner of a horse going places and, if she can transfer that flat track form to the undulations of Newmarket, she could set down a real marker for next year’s 1,000 Guineas.
Firmament seems to save his best for this track and may prove the answer to a fascinating handicap.
The selection boasts a course record of 2-7 and again excelled on the Knavesmire back in June over seven furlongs so ought to go close with his stable among the winners of late. He isn’t the type to take a short price about, but his odds lend themselves to an each-way bet with his York figures reading 1233214.
