Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout October, Jamie Maynard will provide his three best bets.

NAP - JUMIRA BRIDGE (3.30 Leicester)

Won a couple of times in the spring and although he’s yet to add to those victories he’s been running well in defeat. He’s 9lb higher than for that first win in handicap company back in April but a recent 1/2 length defeat at Yarmouth after a short break may suggest that he’s ready to go in again with Roger Varian amongst the winners of late. (Best price 9/2)

NB - DINGO DOLLARS (4.20 Huntingdon)

This five-year old had a decent first season under rules for Alan King over hurdles. He managed two wins from his five starts, one of which was over this trip. He�����ll stay further than this as seen when winning over the extended 3m1f last time out but this looks a good starting point for his chase debut. He’s a previous point-to-point winner and conditions will suit. A clear round of jumping will see him go close. (Best price 5/2)

TREBLE - MININGROCKS (5.30 Leicester)

Declan Carroll’s gelding has progressed over the summer and landed a hat-trick within the space of a month, all over this distance (at which he’s 7/19). Arrives here on the back of victory in a seller so obviously a touch more is required but a previous seventh of 15 in a class 3 handicap was a likeable effort and he’s been dropped a pound since. Now back down to class 5, he could run a big race if putting his right foot forward especially as he's unbeaten at this course. Ground/trip/class in favour and trainer has 25% strike-rate in the past two weeks. (Best price 8/1, each-way)
