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.
The Dunstall Park finale is a lowly but wide-open looking sprint in which RED STRIPES could be a nice price to return to the winners’ enclosure.
On an initial brief perusal of the racecard you could be forgiven for overlooking the seven-year-old who has hardly shone of late. However, the busy selection - now on his 32nd run of the year - was scoring for the fifth time in 2019 as recently as late September and is not to be taken lightly at this level, particularly as his handicap mark is now 1lb below that last winning mark.
The gelding also posted a decent figure over course and distance a week ago in a better race from 6lb out of the handicap, running out of puff after leading to the final furlong but finishing just half a length behind the third-home Fizzy Feet who did us a nice turn yesterday.
Seamus Cronin, who has led Red Stripes to victory on four occasions this year is back on board and, at an expected double-figure price, the pair look worth supporting.
BAHUTA ACHA has had a decent time of it of late since returning from a two-month break, including posting a first success of 2019 over course and distance beating the reopposing Steelriver by a neck in a good time.
Well supported here just on Saturday when agonisingly mugged close home by a very fast-finisher, the four-year-old is clearly thriving and, prominent on my speed figures, can go one better with money coming again on Monday evening.
The drop to 7f did the trick for LOVING GLANCE, who came good in some style at the sixth attempt.
She was a shade unlucky not to have won over a mile earlier in the year and failed to stay over an extended 1m1f here in mid November. However, 7f looks the way to go for the moment and she should take all the beating now connections have found the key to her.
