Alan Thompson's best bet of the day won at Aintree yesterday, today he has selections from Ffos Las and Market Rasen...


"he looks a fair price in this and while I think he has great place potential it surely won’t be long before he gets his head in front again"

Back Verygoodverygood each way @ 13/2 in the 16:30 Ffos Las

16:30 Ffos Las - Verygoodverygood @ 13/2 each way


Nigel Twiston-Davies runs Verygoodverygood at Ffos Las today, he has already won at the course and just failed to make it a double when staying on well at the end of his last race, just failing to catch Never Equalled over two and a half miles. That was on ground that was probably too soft for him and he should be happier on the better ground today. He is also going up in trip and that should also be to his advantage, he has already finished third over three miles before so this step up shouldn't inconvenience him.

The six-year-old has been in decent form this term, and was placed in his last two starts, he looks a fair price in this and while I think he has great place potential it surely won't be long before he gets his head in front again.


15:00 Market Rasen - Atomix @ 9/2


Peter Niven has an interesting runner in this Novice Hurdle in the shape of his six-year-old Atomix. He won his bumper back in 2016 and hasn't been able to get his head in front again since. Despite being sent off as short as 4/7 for a maiden, when he fell at the second last when challenging. His last two starts have certainly not been impressive, finishing a distant 11th of 12 and seventh of nine but this isn't a good race and if he has retained any of the promise he showed in his first three maiden/novice hurdles then he should be capable of taking a contest like this.
