Timeform Radio Tips: Junket to do the job at Yarmouth
Junket's jockey Ryan Moore
"None of Junket's siblings have won over the distance but her style suggests that she needs it."
Terry Norman gives two selections from today's bumper Bank Holiday fixtures...
There may be a plethora of fixtures today but decent betting opportunities are very thin on the ground.
Mac's Power (3.20 Warwick) has, on ratings, only New Planet to worry about in the conditions event over 6f. The pair can be separated by New Planet appearing to need his first run of the season and also not being proven over 6f.
The selection, however, goes very well fresh, is adaptable regarding tactics and comes from the in-form yard of James Fanshawe.
The application of a hood - a tactic Fanshawe likes to use - will also help a horse that can get buzzed up. Any rain that falls will be an additional aid.
The only thing that stops me lauding over the chance of Junket (5.20 Yarmouth) is the slight doubt over whether 10f is the right trip for John Scargill's mare.
The fragile daughter of Medicean - this will be only her sixth start in three years - makes her first attempt at the trip after a strong-finishing second at Kempton over a mile.
None of Junket's siblings have won over the distance but her style suggests that she needs it. The threat of more rain at the seaside track will enhance confidence as well as compromising the chance of Jewelled, Spin Cast and Glass Mountain, who may also need the run.
Ryan Moore is also an unusual booking for the yard, Scargill, though he has struggled for winners , is a more than capable handler and will only book a top jockey if he fancies it.
