Top tipster Simon Holt is over 100 points in profit for the year and he highlights his selections for Saturday's quality racing at Newmarket and .Redcar.
1pt win Something Enticing in 1.31 Newmarket at 11/1 (General)
1pt win Prairie Falcon in 2.06 Newmarket at 12/1 (General)
1pt win Sonny Liston in 2.47 Redcar at 10/1 (Hills)
Saturday's cards have a typically competitive back-end-of-the season look and, with the odd surprise result likely, SOMETHING ENTICING is taken to defy top weight in the opening British EBF Premier Fillies' Handicap at Newmarket.
A double-figure price at the time of writing, the four-year-old has been absent since finishing down the field in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock in the first week of July having previously run quite well at the weights behind Third Realm in a Listed race at Goodwood, albeit no match for the winner.
Compared to those two assignments, this is not so tough for Something Enticing even under top weight, and she returns to the fray after a wind operation which may explain why she wasn't quite delivering in the first half of the season.
Significantly, the filly was in excellent form at this time last year when trained by the now retired David Elsworth as she won a big-field handicap at York before chasing home Vesela in a listed race at Doncaster.
Moreover, Something Enticing has won twice after an absence, and with Seamie Heffernan an interesting booking by new handler Andrew Balding, she may just out-run her odds.
The following £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes features a massive field racing down the last six furlongs of the Rowley Mile and, while the recent course and distance winner Amichi looks sure to go well, so too could PRAIRIE FALCON at a bigger price under William Buick.
The winner of a competitive nursery at Goodwood (7f) in late July, this son of Belardo hasn't done too much wrong since and returned to the winners enclosure at Ayr (6f) last month, holding on by a neck from the favourite Ramazan.
That form now looks pretty decent after the runner-up's fine third behind Galeron and Hellsing in a similar sales-based contest at The Curragh last week and, with Ramazan up to a revised rating of 94, the selection is, in theory, now very close to Amichi's level.
At Redcar, SONNY LISTON can fulfil some of his undoubted potential, dropped back in trip, in the Listed Racing TV Stallions Guisborough Stakes.
An impressive winner of his first start as a two-year-old at Sandown over this distance of seven furlongs, the son of Lawman hasn't been able to add to that success this season, albeit facing some tough tasks including when finishing down the field in the Derby over a too-far mile-and-a-half.
Sonny Liston didn't seem to get home again over nine furlongs at York when last seen in August but a previous close third in a Group Three at Goodwood (1m) where he travelled well until flattening out late on was a bit more like it.
There are deeper listed races and, with trainer Charles Hills enjoying a terrific run of form, this looks a decent opportunity for a horse who has always shown plenty of tactical speed.
