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
Tor has hardly been a roaring success of late but is very well handicapped and makes his debut for a new yard this afternoon.
The five-year-old has had a miserable year, running 10 times without threatening to win but was well supported on his final outing for Iain Jardine 39 days ago. Although he was beaten a fair way in the fast-run contest, he did finish in front of Kaizer who has won twice since, most recently by 15 lengths on his step up to today’s distance on similar going.
Tor has yet to win over this far but the way he stayed on powerfully to nick a race over 1m6f on soft going here in 2017 indicates that it is well worth a try and early support on Monday evening may indicate confidence behind the run.
Kuwait Currency has settled into a fine patch of form since switching to the Sunbury-on-Thames venue in August. Three runs has yielded two victories and a decent second-place behind Kasbaan in a £43,500 race.
He has now hit a mark of 100 after his latest success over course and distance when fending off the late challenge of Sir Michael Stoute’s progressive filly Romola. However, Kuwait Currency sits nicely clear of the field on my figures and is taken to see off another improver in the shape of Alraaja, who is moving up in class.
