Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout October, Jamie Maynard will provide his three best bets.
NAP - LALOR (2.50 Exeter)
Richard Woollacott’s five-year-old was last seen winning a Grade 2 bumper at the Grand National meeting at odds of 33/1. He beat some promising horses the day, most notably Western Ryder (fifth in the Champion Bumper, not beaten far by Fayonagh) and If The Cap Fits (who romped home in a similar race to this recently). He will enjoy the underfoot conditions here and if hurdling well on debut, he should take all the beating. (Best price 7/4)
NEXT BEST - FRUIT SALAD (4.40 Newcastle)
This filly strung together some consistent efforts last summer but hasn’t been in the same form this campaign. However, the return to this track could see her run a better race. She’s twice finished second here and although only sixth here last time, she was only beaten two and a half lengths in a higher grade. She’s been dropped a pound for that effort and has the talented Josephine Gordon in the saddle; she could go close for a trainer who has a good record here. (Best price 4/1)
TREBLE - SUTTERS MILL (3.50 Exeter)
Young jockey Mitchell Bastyan has created a good rapport with this horse finishing first and second on him and another big run is expected with the step back up in trip and underfoot conditions to suit. He’s progressed nicely so far this year and still only a six-year-old there could be more improvement to come. We know he stays as he’s won over further in better ground and hopefully Bastyan can pick them off from the back and run into a place or better. (E-W. Best price 7/1)
