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
Power Link bumped into a rapidly improving and well-treated rival last time over course and distance but clocked a decent time in defeat.
The speedy three-year-old - who had a spell in the UAE at the start of the year - has done the majority of his racing on an artificial surface, picking up victories at Newcastle and Kempton plus a respectable second-place at Meydan.
The Class 4 Kempton win was particularly impressive, so it was no surprise to see him run well again at Dunstall Park 13 days ago in a better contest. The figures achieved on his last two outings standout and a repeat can see him back on track in a competitive sprint this evening.
Charlie D has had a fine time of it this year, scoring four times on turf and posting an eyecatching run here six days ago in a race he’d won in 2018.
It didn’t quite pan out for the selection on Saturday as he ran into trouble when making a move 2f out. To cap an unfortunate outing, his rider lost her reins in the final furlong and by the time she was back in control, the leaders had gone.
Had Charlie D been running over today’s extra distance he may well have given the front two a real battle and he’ll get a chance to prove that theory now he steps back up to 2m, the trip he won over at Chepstow in August.
