Planet Sport are talking up horses named after flowers, sea creatures, road hogs and rugby players on Wednesday, October 13.

Bluebell Way (1.55 Bath)

Kolisi (3.15 Nottingham)

Road Warrior (3.23 Wetherby)

Sea Sylph (4.15 Bath)

Natural Path (4.25 Nottingham)

Alqamar (5.05 Wetherby) 

The first of Planet Sport's picks for Wednesday, October 13 goes the way of popular ex-footballer turned trainer Mick Channon. The likeable Channon sends Bluebell Way to Bath hoping that the filly can find a path to victory.

1.55 Bath - Bluebell Way

This Mick Channon filly is very much on the case at Bath, finishing second at the Somerset track on her last two outings.

The last was over the same five and a half furlong trip and on Wednesday's good to firm going.

Bluebell Way's High Draw is a bonus and jockey Darragh Keenan retains the ride as he attempts to get her head in front finally.

Bluebell Way can come into late bloom at Bath.

4.15 Bath - Sea Sylph

Sea Sylph is a daughter to the great Sea The Stars and has been performing consistently this year for the mighty William Haggas operation.

She won a valuable handicap at Goodwood last time out worth £20,000 over Wednesday's trip of one mile six furlongs.

Sea Sylph has only finished outside of the top two in one of her last five races, winning two and coming second twice.

The talented Tom Marquand gets the leg up on Sea Sylph who can keep her shorter priced foes floundering.

3.23 Wetherby - Road Warrior

Rebecca Menzies sends Road Warrior from Durham, chasing the four timer.

The seven year-old racked up a hat-trick in Spring with her last win coming at Sedgefield over Wednesday's distance.

That Sedgefield victory was by 11 lengths on good ground from Dan Skelton's Getariver.

The front running Road Warrior could mow down his opposition if allowed to get to the head of affairs by Jockey Henry Brooke.

5.05 Wetherby - Alqamar

Another chasing a string of victories, James Moffat's Alqamar is after five wins on the bounce.

The seven year-old has come alive in handicap hurdles under conditional jockey Charlotte Jones, especially at Cartmel where she has won her last three races.

All three of Alqamar's last win's came on good ground, which she encounters again at Wetherby.

Jones gets the ride once more and with the going and distance all in hand, Alqamar looks set for another bold showing.

3.15 Nottingham - Kolisi

Named after the South Africa rugby captain, Kolisi presents a stout proposition in this one mile, two furlong handicap.

Trained by the solid William Haggas, Kolisi has touched down with a win and a second in his last three outings.

The win came in a Salisbury maiden over Wednesday's distance on the all important good to soft going, which should be mirrored at Nottingham.

The experienced Daniel Tudhope steers Kolisi and the gelding named after the rugby star may not have to try too hard to take this race for the powerful Haggas team.

4.25 Nottingham - Natural Path

One that takes in the Oisin Murphy v Will Buick Champion Jockey fight, the Irishman Murphy gets the ride on this consistent Michael Bell runner.

A winner of his last two races over six furlongs, Natural Path was victorious at Class 3 level and now drops down to Class 4.

The snip to five furlongs for the first time should not be a problem and the four year-old has been a winner before on good to soft ground in France.

Natural Path can be an organic winner for the Champion Jockey elect Murphy.
