Sam Turner's Best BetsBlogTop 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

Chinese Alphabet (Ffos Las, 3.45)

Chinese Alphabet ran well at this venue on his latest start over a mile and a quarter when picked off late on by a well handicapped rival which benefited from a more patient ride.

Cheekpieces were applied for the first time after a hood failed miserably at Goodwood the time before and the ploy may have worked had the selection been running over further. Chinese Alphabet now returns to 12 furlongs this afternoon and a repeat of a solid effort over this trip at Doncaster earlier in the season could be enough to see him get off the mark.

Cliff Bay, (Carlisle, 7.15)

Cliff Bay is no superstar, but pretty consistent at this modest level and a repeat of his track win in June would be enough to see him take a hand in the finish here.

The selection has been slightly unfortunate not to add to his tally since and the form of his Ayr effort in June has taken two significant boosts since with those that finished in front both winning since.

Delicate Kiss (Lingfield,7.00)

The course and distance-winning mare shaped as though her turn was close at hand at Sandown last time on her third start since returning from a 150-day break when narrowly beaten by a well backed adversary.

She returns to one of her favoured venues this evening and appeals as a decent wager with excellent figures at today’s track on her cv.
