September 11 Racing Tips: Silks Dream a smooth operator at Bath

It's St Leger day but Planet Sport's Ross Brierley has sniffed out some value at Chester, Bath and Lingfield instead. Watch out for a commentator's nightmare and the boys in blue in his video tips.

Ross Brierley is back and has targets at Chester, Bath and Lingfield including an each-way shout at double figures that is as smooth as silk.

Here's a quick snapshot of Ross' selection. Click on the horse's names to have a punt with Planet Sport Bet.

Alounak (2.00 Chester)

Silks Dream (2.05 Bath)

Tomouh (6.25 Lingfield)

2.00 Chester - Alounak

Planet Sport tipster Ross Brierley fancies the Andrew Balding trained Alounak in the 2.00 at Chester. The Bay gelding is out of the 2012 Epsom Derby winner Camelot. Originally trained in Germany, Alounak was bought by King Power Racing, the Thai racing operation with links to Leicester City.

Alounak placed third last time out in the Ebor at York, with only Quickthorn and Sonnyboyliston ahead of him. Previous to that, Alounak won the Class 2 Old Newton Cup at Haydock at a hefty price of 14/1 on soft going.

Here's a snippet of Ross' thoughts on Alounak's leading chance at Chester.

"The rain has come at just the right time, thunderstorms up and down the country, the track should suit, David Probert is a rock solid booking for this horse, and even though he is six years old, you do get the feeling that he is a classy individual and he should be well up for taking this listed contest."

2.05 Bath - Silks Dream

Ross goes in search of some value in the 2.05 at Bath with Silks Dream, trained by ex-jockey Darryll Holland.

Holland has set up at the Harraton Court Stables and saddles Silks Dream, the son of the July Stakes winning Mehmas. Holland won the July Cup himself as a jockey and sends two-year-old Silks Dream on a fledgling career, looking for a first win.

Silks Dream will be ridden in the 2.05 by apprentice jockey Angus Villiers who claims five pounds.

The colt finished sixth last time out over seven furlongs at Newbury and seventh the time before that at Redcar. Silks Dream steps up to a mile for the first time at Bath for the 2.05

Here's one of the reasons why Ross rates Silks Dream as value at decent odds.

"I like horses that the market have sided with a couple of times but then suddenly forgotten about, clearly he has a lot of ability, he's shown it in every single one of his novice starts and he is bred to relish this step up in trip…Silks Dream gets the nod at decent odds."

Lingfield 6.25 - Tomouh

Over at Lingfield on the all weather, Ross is sweet on the Godolphin filly Tomouh.

Trained by Goldolphin co-trainer Saeed bin Suroor, Tomouh was sired by leading sire Dubawi who won the Irish 2000 Guineas.

Tomouh has a course and distance win to her name at Lingfield, taking the Visit Handicap in June over six furlongs, the trip she races over again on Saturday.

Tomouh finished fourth at Chelmsford over seven furlongs in August.

Here's why Tomouh caught Ross' eye for Planet Sport Bet.

"There is no obvious pace alternative to her early burning speed, and she should be able to get on the front and stay there for the boys in blue."
