Neil Morrice brings us his best bets from Exeter, Newcastle and Kempton Park.
Race 6 No6 EEL PIE ISLAND (Nap)
Trainer: Ralph Beckett – Jockey: Tom Buckley
A rare bumper runner from this top Flat yard, EEL PIE ISLAND has shown ability in preparation for this debut under Rules and can prove a bet worth waiting for.
Race 2 No6 DUBAI IMMO (Nap)
Trainer: Marco Botti – Jockey: Neil a Callan
A son of emergent stallion The Gurkha, DUBAI IMMO was denied by only a head on debut at this track and over the same distance last month. He has taken a leap forward for that educational effort, and is fully primed to deliver against the penalised The Menstone Gem and interesting newcomer Verona Star.
Race 4 No5 CANONIZED
Trainer: William Haggas – Jockey: Tom Marquand
CANONIZED bossed her rivals in a Listed race at York and should be right at home now in a conditions event, getting weight from each of her male foes. She’s proved a fine moneyspinner for connections with four successes in a busy season, and there should be more to come.
Race 4 No11 BONITA B (Nap)
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: David Probert
BONITA B has been a victim of her own consistency, earning on each of her last eleven outings but not managing to put her head in front. She’s been a beaten favourite on three of her last five starts, including over seven furlongs last time, but can raise her game now pulled back to sprinting.
Race 8 No15 KNOCKABOUT QUEEN (Each Way)
Trainer: Michael Herrington – Jockey: David Probert
KNOCKABOUT QUEEN didn’t fare badly on debut for her new handler at Redcar and is worth supporting to do better now he’s had longer to get to know her. Her last success happened in January last year, but she’s been freshened up, and could still have a tune to play.
Race 2 No10 PETAL POWER
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Rossa Ryan
PETAL POWER is well drawn to obtain a handy position in this nursery round a right-handed bend. The Profitable filly knocked on the door when the subject of market support at Wolverhampton and is in the mood to go one better on this slightly different surface.
Race 7 No9 LOVING DASH (Nap)
Trainer: James Fanshawe – Jockey: Daniel Muscutt
LOVING DASH hails from a stable that excels with improving fillies in the autumn. The daughter of Lope De Vega smoothly opened her account at Kempton and is of serious interest now back in handicap company.
