14:30 (Yarmouth) Smart Charger

Smart Charger is rated the best bet at Yarmouth in the opening Quinnbet Daily Free Bet Handicap.

Having only hinted at ability for Tony Carroll, the Saxon Warrior gelding was well backed on his stable debut for Alan King at Southwell last month, going off a short-priced favourite.

He ultimately came up slightly short in second, but should strip fitter for the run given he had been off the track since September and the booking of William Buick suggests connections mean business as he looks to open his account on his first start over a mile and three-quarters.


15:00 (Yarmouth) Aim For The Moon

The patiently-ridden Aim For The Moon appeared to appreciate stepping up to 1m2f when scoring in commanding fashion over course and distance.

This lightly-raced seven-year-old could easily have more to give at the level and a 7lb rise in weights might not be enough to prevent a repeat success.

Market support behind Twilight Guest would be interesting given his stable does well at this venue.

A stronger alternative is possibly Expert Witness who has been raised 2lb for finishing second behind a progressive horse at Bath last time.


16:00 (Yarmouth) Age Of Gold


Buick might also find the target aboard Charlie Appleby’s newcomer Age Of Gold in the British EBF Novice Stakes.

The Moulton Paddocks handler has saddled a few juvenile winners over the past week or so and this €625,000 yearling purchase is bred to be pretty smart, being a son of Frankel and a full-brother to talented sprinter Fivethousandtoone.


17:05 (Yarmouth) Oh So Audacious

Plenty of Harry Eustace-trained horses have been needing their first run this season. With that in mind Oh So Audacious is considered having shaped encouragingly when third at Brighton on her return recently and can strip fitter for that.

Ivasecret went well finishing fifth over 1m at Kempton in April and must be respected with Buick on board.

Stepping back up to 1m could suit No News who went down by a nose at Kempton, while Pearly Star might feature from an each-way perspective.


Yarmouth tips in full:

YARMOUTH: 2.30 Smart Charger, 3.00 Aim For The Moon, 3.30 Art Design, 4.00 Age Of Gold, 4.30 Rogue Soldier, 5.05 Oh So Audacious.
