Man On The Spot puts together four naps from Thursday's meetings in a bid to bash the bookies with a speculative Yankee.

Clive Cox's Rosalie Bonheur can get the Yankee off to a fine start

14.40 Salisbury: Quality & Value At Irish Yearling Sales Nursery

The drop in distance might suit Dutch Portrait but Sallabeh looked as though she'd be suited by further when a staying-on fourth at Goodwood last time. Pinter was much improved at Lingfield last time and Cam Hardie's claim will aid his cause but it may be worth opposing recent Tapeta winner Faraajh under a penalty. Buckleberry wasn't disgraced in a better race at Newbury last time, however, and makes more appeal than the Hannon pair Maftoon and L'Etacq. ROSALIE BONHEUR (NAP) did very well to score on her debut at Ripon considering she got hampered at the start. The runner-up won next time and then ran well off a mark of 71 in a nursery suggesting Clive Cox's filly is well treated here.

16.05 Haydock: Betfred Injured Jockeys Fund EBF Conditions Stakes

Maiden winner Unforgiving Minute has plenty to prove in this company but the remainder are closely matched on today's terms. Krypton Factor was last seen at the track back in March and Diescentric ran well below his best on his reappearance back in July. The drop back to 7f may see Baltic Knight finish closer but MORACHE MUSIC (NAP) arrives in the best form having won a decent handicap at Doncaster last time. Peter Makin's charge should have enough to hold off the attentions of Dutch Rose and gets the vote.

16.30 Sedgefield: Compare Bookies Odds At Handicap Hurdle

This looks on the sharp side for Overpriced and Short Takes while Next Hight will need to have improved over the summer to figure in the grade. Captain Brown is hard to catch right while the years appear to be catching up with Knight In Purple judged on recent efforts, though he's well treated if recapturing his best. OLIVER'S GOLD (NAP) beat a decent sort at Uttoxeter in June and was out of his depth next time. He has much stronger claims here and had a pipe-opener on the Flat last month. Tamarillo Grove looks high enough in the weights now but Morning With Ivan could have more to offer this winter, though may prefer softer ground.

19:40 Wolverhampton: Monsterbet For Monster Deals Handicap

AUTHORIZED TOO (NAP) showed a big improvement for the step up in distance at Yarmouth. He ran out a ready winner on that occasion and there should be more to come from him. Sir Rosco has failed to improve as expected and never troubled the winner when third in a maiden at Kempton but Charlotte's Day is not easily dismissed attempting middle-distances for the first time on her belated seasonal debut. Norse Star needs further, Heska's only win so far came over 7f and Master Dan is unreliable.
