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
Loose Chippings has found winning a difficult task of late, but he deserves a change of fortune following a series of tough and durable efforts on the fibresand and, as he possesses the top three numbers on my speed ratings, he is taken to complete a much-needed victory.
A win on the sand at Laytown apart, the five-year-old has suffered some agonisingly close reverses this summer, but Dougie Costello is handed the responsibility in the saddle and that could be a shrewd move by trainer Ivan Furtado.
Theflyingportrait is 2-2 at the track and a winner of this race 12 months ago when he ran the field ragged in a cracking time.
The veteran was pulled out of a recent assignment at Kelso in order to tackle this race cherry ripe and, as he sits at the top of my figures, he ought to go close to defending his crown at his favoured venue.
Wrenthorpe ploughed through heavy ground to win a minor race here recently in a strong time and could be tough to resist if in the same form.
This looks a deep enough event with the likes of Colwick Park specialist Fantasy Keeper a huge threat, but today's trip may prove more suitable for the selection who appears pretty well drawn to follow up.
