Wednesday’s best bets from the unbeatable Spotlights team at Racing Post


5.05: Riches and rubies

Crystal Guard and Outback Boy have shown enough interest despite the former having to prove his perseverance. Similar comments apply to the filly trained by Richard Fahey Riches and rubies (nap) but the evidence suggests she is on a more positive career path. At Redcar, she met at a crucial time in trouble and could be on the verge of breaking her duck.

Ffos Las

5.15: Not foolish

Even though she was beaten around eight lengths on her handicap debut, Foolish (nap) It doesn’t say anything about the caliber of the front pair, and it’s 3 pounds lower to boot. Lower Street sees it as a major threat as it only went over a mile to get up in Newmarket, and it was bred to level up again for those extra yards. Rose Tiara could feel her presence too.
Alistair Jones

Gowran Park

8.05: Beyond Happy

A return to a longer trip should be the strengths of Beyond Happy (nap), a Curragh winner over 1m4f before finishing second in a 1m2f Naas event. Probable dangers include National Ballet, Palace Rock, and Phoenix Cowboy.
Alan Sweetman


7.25: Flaming spear

Prontissimo and Riknnah are respected three-year-olds, but there’s still a fire burning inside the Veteran Flaming Spear (Nap) and with some of these happiest in the end, he found that this was appropriate. He couldn’t do his best last time at Wolverhampton but he will still have some time to organize on this track and he can jump late. High faluting shouldn’t be far either.
Paul Smith


3.40: Ariel

Top weight Ariel (nap) has a solid claim to form and can underpin his good handicap record. His latest attempt was reinforced when the progressive winner next succeeded. Sevenal and Tasfeeq, both freshly rolled, could prove to be the greatest threats.
Steve Boow


2.40: The thunder

After driving course and distance away from a Sir Mark Prescott improver four weeks ago, The thunder (nap) can track. Three-year-old competitor Moktasaab should win races outside of that mark, while Yankee Stadium is the four-year-old’s choice.
