Bets Of The Day: Roulston Scar ready to deliver

Redcar Racecourse
Today's best bet Roulston Scar runs at Redcar

Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with two selections from Redcar and Haydock...

"He is best judged on his debut when finishing a closing second to Thriving at Beverley"

Back Roulston Scar in the 14:15 at Redcar

Roulston Ready

14:15 Redcar - Roulston Scar

I am going to give Roulston Scar another chance in this novice stakes.

This colt was a little disappointing when finishing a distant third to Space Traveller in a similar event at Hamilton in July. He attempted to make all, but folded tamely when headed a furlong out. This was his second start in two weeks, and may have come a little too soon. He is best judged on his debut when finishing a closing second to Thriving at Beverley. Hopefully he can move forward, and is reasonably priced at 5.04/1 on the exchange.

Favourite Absolute Dream is trading at 3.65 on the exchange. He sets a decent standard, but is winless in seven starts. He represents poor value in my opinion.

Take the Tour

16:05 Haydock - City Tour

City Tour should prove difficult to beat in this interesting race.

This colt caught the eye on debut when finishing a closing second to Chapman Billy at Ayr last month. He missed the break, but picked up the bit two furlongs from home and was gaining on the winner close home. I think he is open to a fair bit of improvement, and should handle the testing conditions. At present he is trading at 3.3512/5 on the exchange which is more than fair.

Guildhall heads the market at 2.6613/8 on the exchange. He ground out a victory at Ayr last month in testing conditions, and has every right to improve. He has to carry a penalty, which could prove problematic.
