Bets Of The Day: The Steward to boss field

The Steward Sedgefield
Today's best bet The Steward runs at Sedgefield

"He sets a decent standard and will appreciate the ease in grade"

Back The Steward at 5.39/2 in the 14:20 at Sedgefield

Nick Shiambouros returns with a short-priced lay and a win selection from Sedgefield...

Not today Emma

12:50 Sedgefield - Emma Lamb

I will be pushing the lay button on Emma Lamb in this maiden hurdle.

This mare is winless in 10 starts over various distances. She changed hands recently, and makes her debut for Dr Richard Newland. He overall form reads well in the context of this race, but looks fully exposed. Last time out at Southwell she was beaten soundly when finishing fourth to She's Gina. I can afford to let her win at her current price of 2.01/1.

Flamboyant is my idea of the winner. He put in a much improved effort when finishing third to Minella Trump over this course, and should have more to offer at 4.1.

The Steward to deliver

14:20 Sedgefield - The Steward

The Steward should make his presence felt in this novices' hurdle.

This gelding finished down the field behind Elvis Mail in the Scottish Champion Trial at Ayr earlier this month. He was headed three flights from home, and was easily brushed aside. He has some solid form in the book, notably when beating Beeno at Cartmel in August. He sets a decent standard and will appreciate the ease in grade. At present he is trading at 5.39/2 on the exchange.

Induno won a Ffos Las bumper in good style last month. He makes his hurdles debut today and should be ready to do himself justice. At present he is trading at 2.01/1. He is the obvious danger.
