Bets Of The Day: Staunch a formidable rival

Today's best bet Staunch runs at Kempton
Today's best bet Staunch runs at Kempton

Nick Shiambouros hopes to find the winners enclosure with a couple of selections from Kempton and Yarmouth...

"He has not lived up to his purchase price, but should develop in to a better three-year-old"

Back Staunch in the 15:00 at Kempton

Noseda entry ready

15:00 Kempton - Staunch

Staunch should run well at a fair price in this novice stakes.

This Union Rags gelding was an expensive breeze-up purchase at the Ocala sales last spring. He was placed in a couple of similar events last year and showed some promise. He has not lived up to his purchase price, but should develop into a better three-year-old. I think he has more to offer and is reasonably priced at 9.417/2 on the exchange.

Enzemble heads the market at 3.3512/5. This colt put in a much improved effort when chasing home Rum Runner at Sandown last September. He is the main danger to the selection.

Take the Point

18:50 Yarmouth - Point Zero

Point Zero should give the short priced favourite plenty to think about in this interesting four runner affair.

This Irish import put in a solid effort when finishing third to Forward Thinker, in his first start for his new yard. He was only just denied near the line, and only beaten a neck. Further improvement is expected, and the shorter trip should suit him down to the ground.

Choco Box was all the rage at HQ last time out but disappointed behind Naval Intelligence. He had previously shaped well when finishing second on debut behind Aim Of Artemis. The shorter trip should be in his favour, but I have zero interest in backing him at 1.9720/21.
