Timeform Radio Tip: Alfraamsey is good neighbourly betting advice

Folkestone is where Alfraamsey will be looking to win from the front

David Cleary picks the best bets ahead of a good day's racing with all eyes on Doncaster and Folkestone.

"This looks a race set up for the front-running Alfraamsey, who comes here at the top of his game and has conditions that look ideal for him."

Three competitive Flat cards provide the afternoon action, with plenty of runners up and down the country but a shortage of feature events. The most valuable race of the afternoon is the six-furlong handicap at Folkestone at 15.55 but there may be a better bet on the card in the following race, over more than a mile further, at 16.30. This looks a race set up for the front-running Alfraamsey, who comes here at the top of his game and has conditions that look ideal for him. Main danger Clowance House has been given a chance on his old form but he needs to show he retains more ability than even his recent win over hurdles suggests he does. Native Colony is another with claims but if Alfraamsey runs to his recent level, he will be hard to beat.

The staying handicap at Doncaster at 16.10 is much more open but a couple worth chancing against the field are Activate and Harvey's Hope. Activate has been slipping down the weights and showed definite signs he could be on the way back last. Harvey's Hope ran below expectations when well backed last time but the ground may well have been firmer than ideal and a return to easier ground could well see him revive.

Recommended Bets:

Back Alfraamsey @ 3.3512/5 in the 16.30 at Folkestone
Back Activate and Harvey's Hope @ 13.012/1 and 24.023/1 in the 16.10 at Doncaster
