Planet Sport return with racing tips for Tuesday, October 5. There's a gleaming choice at Huntingdon, a Halloween themed pick at Leicester and a soft, strong and long punt at Kempton.

Island Nation (3.05 Huntingdon)

Midnight Jewel (4.15 Huntingdon)

Deputy (4.32 Leicester)

Some Nightmare (5.05 Leicester)

Odisseo (6.00 Kempton)

Quilted (6.30 Kempton) 

They say no man is an island but Planet Sport are starting with a hefty tip for the floating punter at Huntingdon.

3.05 Huntingdon - Island Nation

The up and coming trainer Olly Murphy is beginning to send his string out on their autumn campaign and Island Nation can take this two mile hurdle.

Raced exclusively at Perth over the Summer, the Ruler Of The World gelding won an amateur jockeys' hurdle at the Scottish track over the distance in July and then placed third twice.

Those runs should give the four year-old the fitness advantage against the slowly emerging field and Lewis Stones taking off seven pounds will do no harm at all.

The current fuel shortages are testament to Britain being an Island Nation but Olly Murphy's charge should have plenty of petrol in the tank.

4.15 Huntingdon - Midnight Jewel

Oxfordshire trainer Charlie Longsdon crosses the boat race divide to take on this Class 5 hurdle at the Cambridgeshire track.

Midnight Jewel has hit real form as a five year-old, winning twice in his last three races. The first was a game half-length victory at Market Rasen and the gelding followed up over the distance at Fontwell last time out.

Sired by AGFA Hurdle winning Midnight Legend, Longsdon's charge has only finished out of the top three in one of his last five starts.

With conditional jockey Tom Buckley claiming five pounds and middling competition, Midnight Jewel can gleam at Huntingdon.

4.32 Leicester - Deputy

Another young trainer on the up, Charlie Fellowes won a nice Grade 3 over the weekend at Ascot and can take this modest heat at Leicester with Deputy.

A winner twice over seven furlongs this summer, Deputy will get this six furlong trip all day long and, being sired by Lawman, you'd think the three year-old would go longer in time.

Yet, this sprint on soft ground is well within the gelding's grasp and that experience over further could prove vital in this tacky East Midlands test.

In both his recent wins, Deputy had a bit in hand at the business end which hints at more to come. Don't shoot the messenger but the Deputy could turn sheriff at Leicester.

5.05 Leicester - Some Nightmare

This four year-old is running well at present, taking six furlong dashes at Goodwood and Chepstow most recently.

John O'Shea's versatile Dream Ahead gelding has won on the all-weather, good to firm, good and soft going in the past six months.

His penultimate victory at Chepstow was on unforgiving soft ground which stands O'Shea's charge in solid stead for the Leicester squelch.

A two pounds rise shouldn't be enough to stop him and with Robert Havlin up top Some Nightmare can run like a dream here for the hat-trick.

6.00 Kempton - Odisseo

Newmarket trainer Marco Botti set out Odisseo to perfection for a course and distance win at Kempton on September 17.

The two length win from Rod Millman's Twistaline sets the Ulysses colt up for a quick double in this Class 5, seven furlong test.

Botti's two year-old has taken to all-weather nurseries with aplomb, with victory in his penultimate start at Newcastle, again over seven furlongs.

A six pounds rise shouldn't be too problematic and the booking of David Egan can see the three timer come to fruition.

6.30 Kempton - Quilted

Juddmonte remain serious players despite the sad passing of patron Khalid Abdulla.

The famous pink and green silks were carried to victory over the weekend by Sunray Major at Ascot and Quilted can follow up here.

Quilted's sire is none other than Frankel with the filly a sister to Roger Charlton's Newmarket Fillies' Mile winning Quadrilateral.

Title chasing Will Buick gets the leg-up at Kempton as the three year-old looks to build on a comfortable three and half length win at Thirsk on September 13.

The Polytrack shouldn't be a problem and Quilted can use this to add layers of fitness on the way to bigger things.
