Life can be a beach with these seaside specials from Yarmouth and Redcar, just click on the Planet Sport Bet links to have a flutter. Now where's the candy floss stall?

Fontwell 2.35 - Courtandbould

McManus horse Mick Pastor becoming a non-runner can only be seen as a boon for Courtandbould in this small runner field at Fontwell.

Gloucester trainer Fergal O'Brien holds a premature lead in the jumps trainers' Championship, doing well over the Summer and saddles this Uttoxeter winner over fences.

A faller last time out at Stratford, Courtandbould put in an error dotted showing but jumped well the race before at fellow Midlands track Uttoxeter.

The booking of ultra-experienced Paddy Brennan is a big tick and if the O'Brien charge can nail his jumps then it'll be howzat for Courtandbould.

Fontwell 3.40 - Chives

There's nothing cheesy about picking Chives as the winner of this handicap hurdle, being sent from Seven Barrows by classy trainer Nicky Henderson.

Only out of the top three in one of his six starts, the Sulamani gelding finished third in a two mile seven furlong hurdle at Market Rasen last time out in August.

Before that, Chives had racked up a pair of wins over distances closer to two miles at Stratford and Bangor-On-Dee.

The switch to two miles, one and a half furlongs should suit, so too a bit of give in the ground due to recent rain in Sussex.

Stable jockey Nico de Boinville will have a solid brief from his trainer, so don't be surprised if Chives has Henderson jiving in the aisles at Fontwell.

1.50 Yarmouth - Bonita B

It's late in the season at Norfolk holiday track Yarmouth and Mick Channon has a potential winner here in Bonita B, provided she can hold on for the seven furlongs.

A layer's dream up to now with four thirds and three second placed finishes in her last eight runs, Bonita B has been knocking on the door longer than a boyfriend that's gone on a night out and forgotten his key.

Yet like the affable former Southampton and England footballer turned trainer Channon, Bonita B has plenty to like about her, being a well bred daughter of the great Oasis Dream and with a useful dam in Effie B.

Bonita translates as pretty in Spanish and punters will be sitting pretty if Channon's filly gets to the front.

4.30 Yarmouth - Bomb Proof

A big fat tip for a horse sent out by James Fanshawe, the spindly trainer known as skeleton man, in the five furlong sprint.

Well regarded down the road at Newmarket, Fanshawe is known for the likes of Soviet Song and a small but quality string of animals.

Time seems to be ticking down for the next win for Society Rock gelding Bomb Proof, a good second last time out on the all-weather at Kempton over six furlongs.

Wind surgery has have nudged some improvement in the four year-old and the return to five furlongs, the trip he won his maiden at, should suit.

It won't take a supreme horse to win this Class Four handicap at Yarmouth, more a firework lobbed on Yarmouth beach but Bomb Proof has enough to make a bit of a bang at none too skinny odds.

1.40 Redcar - Mackenzie Rose

Mackenzie Rose could have punters coming up smelling sweet in the 1.40 for in-form trainer Mark Johnston.

The Dark Angel filly will handle most ground and won't be put off by the forecast rain at Redcar, finishing second when last seen at Carlisle on good going in August.

That second was to dual winner Makalu of Kevin Ryan's and MacKenzie Rose looks ready to come into bloom sooner rather than later under the experienced Joe Fanning.

2.45 Redcar- Sucellus

Oliver Greenall's five year-old comes with a bit of a back story after originally being trained by the legendary John Gosden.

Sucellus was then sent to Roger Fell, for whom he failed to win in 10 starts before ending up with the predominantly national-hunt focused Oliver Greenall.

Indeed, there is a definite jumps air to proceeding with Sucellus being ridden to victory last time out by Megan Nicholls, the daughter of the one and only Paul Nicholls.

The 23 year-old Nicholls rode Sucellus to a game neck victory over Star Shield at Haydock over a mile and the gelding looks a good shot over the same distance in the North East.

Named after a Celtic god, Sucellus can put in a powerful showing at Redcar.
