14.30 Gowran Park

First up we have the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Hurry Harriet Stakes (Listed) over 1m 1f 100y and it will be between the two Aiden O’Brien runners for me to win this and I am edging for ENNISTYMON. Jockey Seamie Heffernan has chosen to ride Laburnum who is a C&D winner here and was 4th in the Irish Oaks back on the 20th July. She has improved on each of her runs and should feature in the finish. ENNISTYMON was poor last time out in the Irish Oaks when last of 8, 25 days ago. She is stepping back down in trip and has a great draw and is expected to bounce back here with a bang here for Wayne Lordan. With both horses rated over 100, it is sure to be a cracking contest.


15.20 Kempton

Next up we have the Unibet Handicap over 6f and MAY SONIC for Charlie Hills and Jockey William Buick will be looking to win this quick-fire sprint over 6f. A course winner back here last April and was a winner when last seen at Winsdor 16 days ago staying on well for Tom Marquand but he is up 6lb for that success and this is a harder race but I feel he can overcome the penalty and win here for his connections. Top Breeze is a C&D winner here and could be one to watch here. Last Surprise likes this distance and has won 3 times over this trip, but these were on artificial surfaces and she merits respect on her first outing since February. But for me, MAY SONIC is a potential sprinter and can progress again.


17.15 Beverley

HUA MULAN can continue her great form this year and win the Walkington Handicap over 1m 1f 207y. She is a promising type who is 1 win from 2 runs this year and is the horse racing NAP of the day. She is coming off her best performance so far when winning a 6 runner handicap over this C&D 8 days ago. Connections will be hoping that they can overcome this penalty with a quickfire return and I feel that if she turns up in the same mood she is the one to beat. She is one to consider here and with Daniel Tudhope taking over the mount from Joe Fanning, it isn’t a bad swap for Keith Dalgleish’s 3-year-old. Araka Li can offer more here and has form over C&D when 3rd of 13 here 26 days ago.


17.35 Wolverhampton

My second last selection is interesting for me with Oisin Murphy taking over the mount in the Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Handicap. BENNY AND THE JETS is a course winner and won well at Kempton back in June. He was a good 4th of 11 in a handicap at Goodwood 15 days ago and he has the potential to come back here and be a serious contender. The booking of the champion jockey is a massive plus for me and he has won here on a previous run and he was 2lb higher when last seen. Absolutio is a competitive runner and won here when last seen 17 days ago, staying on well. This is a harder contest but can’t be discounted.


20.10 Wolverhampton

My last pick is going to be an each-way racing tip for today and Oisin Murphy takes over the mount of GEIZY TEIZY in the last race of the day, the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap over 1m 1f 104y. She is a course winner here and has a second to her name here. She hasn’t had great form of late but is down to a workable mark. She was last seen when 5th of 8 in a handicap at Winsdor 23 days ago. I feel she has a chance of getting involved from a good draw. Daheer will look to improve here for Owen Burrows and Jim Crowley and Mayfair Pompette is another one to consider here for in form stable Charlie Fellows.
