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
TOWN PARKS caught the eye when I was present at Stratford recently as the outing looked as though it would benefit him physically.
The opportunity to return to a venue which has suited previously is a huge positive this afternoon and, although this race looks a warm one in its own right, his effort on comeback was achieved in a tidy race of its type so it will be disappointing if he can't improve on that comeback effort.
Two of the selection's career best performances were achieved on right-handed tracks at Ludlow and today's venue, and the handicapper is starting to show a little leniency so he could be poised to strike for trainer Kerry Lee.
The daughter of Camelot relished the opportunity to tackle soft ground at the Staffordshire venue to land a competitive handicap for its grade in the hands of Johnny Burke and the runner-up, Clearly Capable, has since run creditably at Chepstow.
The assessor had his say subsequently, raising Hen by 8lb for that smooth first career win, however she looks a filly capable of significant improvement and her trainer has taken the precaution of entering her at Taunton later in the week in case she were to win.
