Recommended Bets

- Back Nastenka each way in the 14:30 at Nottingham @ 11.010/1
- Lay Aqalim in the 14:40 at Bangor @ 2.56/4
- Back Pumbaa in the 15:35 at Sligo @ 5.59/2

Our Each-Way bet is Nastenka in the 14:30 at Nottingham who has been well supported from 19.018/1 into 11.010/1. The once raced filly comes here on the back of a solid debut at Ascot finishing a competitive sixth of eighth having showed signs of greenness throughout. With the three market leaders yet to see a racecourse Nastenka's experience should stand her in good stead. Expect a big improvement from the Ed Walker-trained 2yo and she should be able to hit the frame in this Maiden Stakes.

Our Lay bet is Aqalim in the 14:40 at Bangor which has drifted from 2.0421/20 to 2.56/4. The Ravens Pass gelding makes his chase debut after coming up well short of graded glory last season behind the likes of Thistlecrack and Kilccoley. Key market rivals Net Work Rogue and Atlantic Gold have been heavily backed for this on the basis of their chasing efforts. Due to a lack of chasing experience and the competitive nature of the race Aqalim will have to pull out all the stops to win this.

Our back bet is Pumbaa in the 15:35 at Sligo which has been backed from 7.06/1 into 5.59/2. The Colin Bowe trained 8yo comes here on the back of a decent effort at Listowel finishing second behind Kylecrue. Now off a mark of 130 after that he has been given a chance by the handicapper. With the favourite Draycott Place yet to win in his previous 18 runs including an unseated rider last time out Pumbaa looks a good bet to take him on with.
