Tip of the Day: Fall in Love
Dave Ord is waddling less than a mile from his home for today's best bet - Love Island at Pontefract.

Love Island 4.00 Pontefract
The Ayr Western Meeting gets under way today but for the Tip of the Day I'm staying closer to my Pontefract home. In fact just 0.73 miles (thanks AA routefinder) from it.
The Pontefract Park Fillies' Handicap looks the sort of contest that usually has me reaching for the inhaler but there's a 10/1 poke in here who makes plenty of each-way appeal.
True Love Island could be better drawn in ten but she sluiced home by six lengths on her last visit here and clearly revels in the Haribo air. She's run well since off an eight pounds higher mark when nutted at York and will handle whatever ground the predicted rain throws up.
The progressive Floating Around and Jubilant Queen are clearly big players and expect Misplaced Fortune to be primed for a huge run as she seeks to win this contest for the third year running.
However it's with the top weight Love Island I side. At least the walk home, whether it be in victory or defeat, will be blissfully short.
