Market Rasen – 18th November: DOM’S NAP + NB | Thursday’s 2 Best Bets

Our two best bets for the action at Market Rasen on Thursday evening

888 Promotion

Kim Bailey’s charge chased home Sam Barton at Doncaster back in January but perhaps the step up in trip and switch to chasing can unlock further improvement for the Gloucestershire representative.

He scored at Uttoxeter when last seen in a race that has worked out well and represents a yard who have been among the winners of late.

Kim Bailey has only one Market Rasen runner on Thursday afternoon

In a very competitive affair, Hardy Du Seuil is a proven winner in this sphere and looks likely to have a say.

NB: WORLD TRIP | 12:52pm Pertemps Network Mares’ Handicap Hurdle

It could be hard to look past Olly Murphy’s charge against her own sex here and with only a 2lb rise from a fine second at Perth when last seen in May.

Lewis Stones eases the weight carriage with his claim and she seems to have improved hugely for the step up to the three-mile trip, with her stable not doing a lot wrong of late.

Misscarlett has had a couple of creditable efforts this autumn so far and looks the each-way player on that merit.
