Sam Turner's Best Bets BlogBURN BABY BYRNE (Ludlow, nap, 3.05) was a smooth winner of a modest race over course and distance last time and looks a decent recent Irish recruit for Evan Williams.

The mare had a fine point-to-point record across the Irish Sea and is now rapidly making a name for herself at the Shropshire venue having done all her UK racing here since her yard bow in October. The locals will have noticed her improvement with each outing, including when not beaten far in a Class 2 contest by a heavily odds on favourite. That set her up nicely for a drop in grade last month and, very well backed, she made no mistake.

Burn Baby Byrne’s growing band of followers will be expecting more of the same.

Set your alarm early for Lingfield where course and distance LOCOMMOTION (Lingfield, nb, 11.40) is back in action quickly. The selection was unlucky to be touched off last time at Kempton in another strong figure for the grade but could gain compensation with this race likely to set up well for him.

Both Nicky Henderson and Alan King have done well in this race over recent years, with the former successful with Style De Garde last season.

His representative this time around will no doubt be popular but OUR POWER (Newbury, 12.30) was unfortunate to bump into a potentially decent horse at Exeter 24 days ago but booked a respectable figure in defeat. He should offer some value against a more high profile rival.
