The pick of Tuesday's action comes from Newbury and that is where we head for our Placepot attempt.

In The Red improved on his debut effort when finishing runner-up here last time and, with the step up to a mile likely to suit, he may be capable of producing an even better performance today...

16:40- In The Red improved on his debut effort when finishing runner-up here last time and, with the step up to a mile likely to suit, he may be capable of producing an even better performance today. In The Red has proven that he handles soft ground and looks sure to give a good account.

17:10- Bellajeu has had a few chances and is starting to become expensive to follow, but it's difficult to knock her record on testing ground, and she may be capable of bouncing back from a lacklustre effort last time now faced with an easier surface. There are a couple of interesting rivals in opposition, though, notably the well-bred Knight of Wands who showed clear signs of promise when finishing runner-up on debut in June and is likely to carry on improving with experience.

17:40- Cottesloe has made a good start for John Berry, winning at Lingfield in June and going in again at same venue 10 days ago. He's been hit with a 9 lb rise but the fact he arrives in such good form is an obvious positive and he's expected to make another bold bid.

18:10- Rocking Rudolph was well backed to win a weak Southwell maiden on debut and shaped better than the bare result when finishing ninth in a listed race here recently, travelling well for much of the way. She remains open to improvement and should be capable of making an impact at this sort of level. We'll also include Sahreej as he bounced back from a disappointing run at Royal Ascot to finish second behind a useful prospect at Ffos Las and is likely to go well again.

18:40- Juncart won twice for Kevin Ryan last autumn and, while he's yet to kick on, it's still early days with William Haggas. Juncart showed a glimmer of promise on his penultimate outing at Chelmsford and may be suited by this step up in trip, so he's the first horse we'll turn to in the Placepot. Juncart is no banker, though, so we'll also include the in-form Hot Mustard who has finished either first or second on his last six outings and still looks well treated, the form of his recent Sandown win working out well.

19:10- Miss Inga Sock won at Brighton in June and has largely been in good form since, arriving here on the back of a career-best effort at Beverley last time which saw her finish second despite racing closer to the pace than ideal. A similar sort of performance would see her on the premises. We'll also include Saskia's Dream as whilst she's been on a long losing run she's been running creditably of late and her consistency is an asset for Placepot purposes.

Recommendations:
16:40- 7
17:10- 5, 6
17:40- 4
18:10- 2, 4
18:40- 7, 11
19:10- 6, 10
= 16 lines
