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
Jan De Heem may not have the greatest strike-rate at the North Yorkshire venue but he knows his way round here and this lowly contest should not take much winning.
The nine-year-old has run here 20 times and recorded just the one success. However, that was in this race back in 2017 when delivered with a perfectly timed challenge on soft ground.
Stuck on a long losing run since then, he has now settled into a consistent patch of form and eventually added a seventh career victory at Catterick last Tuesday on fast going. It was no fluke and just reward for recent near misses.
Not one for maximum stakes, Jan De Heem nonetheless is in fine nick at the moment and effectively only 1lb higher in a poor handicap.
Not beaten far over a mile and a half at Brighton at the start of the month, he clocked a decent figure when winning a Leicester apprentices’ race under today’s in-form jockey a week ago and is unpenalised for the success.
Sea Of Mystery was staying on so well that this return to further should hold no fears and he sits nicely clear of the field on my figures.
Global Hope has taken up residency at the seaside venue and remains in good form despite a reversal 23 days ago. The three-year-old was trying to follow up his very easy Class 6 maiden handicap win in a better race over a furlong further but looked inconvenienced by the trip rather than class.
Dropped back to 6f, he has the chance to prove that theory correct.

JAN DE HEEM (Redcar, 5.00) 1pt win
SEA OF MYSTERY (Yarmouth, 3.40) 1pt win
GLOBAL HOPE (Yarmouth, 4.40) 1 pt win
