Nick Robson previews the quality action on Wednesday and nominates Ed Walker's Caradoc as the best bet of the day.

Ed Walker's Caradoc created a huge impression when winning at Chester last time out and is taken to defy a penalty in the 188Bet World Cup Money Back Specials "Confined" Novice Stakes at Haydock.

It takes an above-average recruit to win a novice event carry 6lb more than the rest, but the way Caradoc took off at Chester looked a bit special.

Fourth on his debut at Kempton in December, he was sent off favourite against six rivals and he absolutely flew in the short home straight.

While it was impressive to see him cross the line five lengths clear, what was perhaps even more striking was that it took Pat Cosgrave an age to pull him up.

The runner-up has a rating of 88 so while he was in receipt of 6lb, it was still exciting he could dismiss him so readily.

Charlie Appleby's beautifully-bred Swiss Knight rates an obvious danger but Caradoc could be anything.

Luca Cumani was celebrating at Haydock on Saturday with God Given and her half-brother Plentiful is of interest in the 188Bet Cash Back If Brazil Win "Confined" Novice Stakes.

Fourth of 11 on debut at Redcar, it was a typical Cumani introduction and this close relative of the top-class Postponed can be expected to take a good step forward from that.

James Bethell's Ulshaw Bridge outran his odds in a valuable race at Haydock last time out and off 1lb lower in the World Cup Betting At 188Bet Handicap he should go close again.

He was fourth to Royal Ascot-bound Crack On Crack On and he will enjoy conditions.

It is usually worth nothing whenever William Haggas books Ryan Moore, and the fact Seniority is owned by the Queen makes it even more intriguing.

There is £50,000 on offer in the Bet totetrifecta At totesport.com Moulsham Mile Handicap at Chelmsford and the course has been rewarded with a 16-runner field.

A keen type, he needs to be held up so his draw in 10 is not the end of the world and expect Moore to play his hand late, just like James Doyle managed last time when scrambling home by a nose off 3lb lower.

Udontdodou looks the class act in the Bet toteswinger At totesport.com Essex Sprint Handicap and can defy top weight.

Rebecca Bastiman's Logi has already won a Hamilton twice recently and has sound claims of bringing up the hat-trick in the Audi Corporate Team Handicap.

Lightning Charlie looks the pick in the 32Red Casino Handicap at Kempton, while Motagally is an interesting newcomer for Charlie Hills in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes at Yarmouth.
