Bets of the Day: Zonderland to take Heron Stakes

Today's best bet Zonderland runs at Sandown

Nick Shiambouros is hoping to end his current stint in the tipping chair with a couple of winners at Haydock and Sandown...


"I think he will appreciate the ease in grade and should go very close"

Back Zonderland in the 20:15 at Sandown

15:30 Haydock - Mujaamil

Mujaamil should run well for in-form trainer Willie Haggas.

This Dansili colt shaped well on debut when finishing ninth to Chelsea Lad at HQ last October. He was slowly away, but put in some good work in the closing stages and was not beaten all that far.

I think he has a lot more to offer and represents decent value at his current price of 7.413/2 on the exchange.

Perigee is the favourite at 3.65. He put in an improved effort last time out when finishing third in a maiden at HQ . He should not be far away.


20:15 Sandown - Zonderland

Zonderland sets a decent standard in this fascinating contest.

This talented individual finished an excellent sixth to Galileo Gold in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket last month. He had a chance two furlongs from home, but was left behind when the pace lifted.

I think he will appreciate the ease in grade and should go very close. He is trading at 4.03/1 on the exchange and I have backed him at that price.

Sir Michael Stoute sends out Forge who was impressive when winning a Doncaster maiden last month. This beautifully bred colt is by Dubawi and is out of the brilliant mare Heat Haze.

He is a typical Stoute improver and must be respected.

Royal Artillery is another interesting runner. He won a maiden at Doncaster last year in great style and comes from a good family. He has a lot more to do but could be anything.
