The last time Ben Coley stepped in as substitute for a gallivanting racing team, his nap won at 14/1. Can lightning strike twice?

Recommended bet: Sporting Life's Daily Nap, February 25

1pt win Fergal Mael Duin in 2.50 Fontwell at SP

Colin Tizzard and Harry Cobden combined for a big-priced winner at Kempton on Saturday and it's worth chancing Fergal Mael Duin to repeat the trick at Fontwell on Sunday.

This horse has dropped to a career-low mark of 112 on the back of a lifeless effort at Uttoxeter last time and he may well be a lost cause, but prior to that he'd shown up well here having been the subject of a fair gamble before stumbling four out and unseating Cobden.

Although there was a little way to go, he looked to have been coaxed back into form by his master handler and I can forgive any horse for throwing in the towel on heavy ground at a track like Uttoxeter - even one that handles it.

He gets cheekpieces to replace blinkers on Sunday, which might spark improvement and is two-from-two over course-and-distance, the most recent of which a convincing success under a big weight off an 8lb higher mark.

With that in mind, having to carry 12st isn't too much of a worry on better ground and while there are younger, progressive horses in opposition here, at the likely prices a chance is taken that Tizzard can work the oracle.

Daily Nap record: -10.99pts
