On The Nose: Dark Spec has a shining chance at Pontefract

Planet Sport's win-only bets comes courtesy of Pam Sly and the son of her 1000 Guineas winning Speciosa. Each-Way hounds look away now at Pontefract.

4.45 Pontefract - Dark Spec

Cambridgeshire based trainer Pam Sly has had some fun recently with the useful Eileendover and Dark Spec can provide a few more winners.

Out of Sly's 1000 Guineas winning Speciosa, the six year-old returned this season after a mammoth four year break to finish a decent third at Sandown on his last appearance.

The gelding recorded a staying on third behind Crema Inglesa in Surrey, the horse that finished second on Saturday in a useful handicap at Newmarket.

With Speciosa for a dam, the soft going should be of little concern at Pontrefract, nor the one mile distance.

Dark Spec can provide a chink of light after a wet weekend with the win here.
