Nick Grant picks out the best bets for Thursday and he has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Aspetar looks to have a fine chance of getting his career back on track with victory in the William Hill Doonside Cup at Ayr.

The Al Kazeem colt is held in some regard by trainer Roger Charlton and was last seen contesting a Group Three in France in June, after winning a Listed event at Goodwood.

His unbeaten run came to an end across the Channel, where the ground was considered to have gone against him.

A scorching summer meant he was put away for an autumn campaign and conditions look certain to be much more in his favour in Scotland, for what also represents a drop in class.

Unraced as a two-year-old, he remains open to lots of improvement and it will be disappointing if he does not make his presence felt.

Agincourt absolutely dotted up last time out at Ripon and is expected to make a bold bid in the British Stallion Studs Scottish Premier Series EBF Fillies' Handicap.

David O'Meara's three-year-old was getting off the mark at the fourth attempt, having run some way below her best at the same venue the time before.

She was found not to be herself following that penultimate run, so it was no real surprise to see her bounce back and it will be interesting to see what she can do on her handicap bow.

O'Meara can also land a nice prize at Chelmsford by way of Firmament in the Irish Lotto At totesport.com Handicap.

The six-year-old has been keeping good company, most recently at Sandown, where he was third after having to be switched to get a clear run at things.

He would not be winning out of turn and adding further encouragement is the fact he has not been out of the frame in three previous starts here.

Jack's Point can follow up a recent course-and-distance success at the Essex track with victory in the £20 Free Bets At totesport.com Nursery Handicap.

The William Muir-trained youngster shed his maiden tag at the beginning of the month, having bumped into a couple of good ones when running with promise in his first four starts.

He came home well to pip Magical Wish and it would be dangerous to underestimate his chance in a useful race.

Ryan Moore's presence at Pontefract looks sure to be significant, so Procedure is worth following in the EBF "Breeders' Series" Fillies' Handicap.

The former champion has a number of other chances, too, including Bugler Bob in the opening maiden.

At Yarmouth, Charlton's Magellan looks the one to be on in the Dan Hague - Betting On The Rails Handicap.
