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
I have always felt Jason Hart is one of the better sprint jockeys riding and the young Scotsman has an opportunity to endorse that view this afternoon.
Hart has been unlucky not to win on Eric Alston's mare LYDIATE LADY this season with the duo suffering a couple of narrow defeats. However, she ran another sound race without her regular pilot on board last week when chasing home Bellevarde in a strong time and this drop to Class 6 company could be the catalyst for her getting her head back in front.
DEINONYCHUS boasts an impressive record at Colwick Park where his career record reads four wins from nine starts.
Arguably the selection wasn't ridden to best effect last time at Doncaster when poorly positioned on the track in a race where it paid to be on the speed and I would be surprised if Gina Andrews doesn't make more use of him today back at his favoured venue. The Appleby team landed a nice touch with Restive in a similar event at Southwell on Tuesday afternoon and more of the same would be nice for this soft-ground lover in the finale who bids to give his handler a fourth successive win in this event.
BEYOND EQUAL posted a decent run last week behind a very well-backed rival and looks a solid each-way play under the same circumstances this evening.
He travelled well on that occasion and boasts the fastest recent figure on my ratings so looks worth playing from a fair draw.
