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
SHESHOON SONNY was reportedly in need of the run at Stratford first time over hurdles where the track may also not have played to his strengths.
The selection took time to warm to the task but after a couple of sloppy jumps settled down and kept on well - but all too late - to finish four and a half lengths adrift of the winner.
Sheshoon Sonny - who was well backed that day - is expected to shape better here with that run under his belt and looks to boast plenty of scope and potential this season over hurdles, particularly now stepped up in distance.
MR MEDIC could be worth chancing first time out as he has twice won off a summer break and goes well at today's venue having won this contest last year, landing a belated course brace.
The 2018 victory was achieved in a decent time courtesy of some fine jumping as despite his 335-day holiday he was not to be caught, with the field - apart from the runner-up - toiling behind. It has to be noted that he was well beaten in three races after, including at the Cheltenham festival but it is likely that today’s race has been a target for some time.
The form of UNWIN VC’s Exeter run is beginning to work out with the third home Saint De Reve winning easily yesterday.
The five-year-old wasn't knocked about on his comeback and looks to have been found a nice opportunity on this first try in a handicap, and the easy ground and slight step up in trip should play to his strengths.
