Wednesday's Best Bets: Mutineer is crystal clear

Tippin' Jimmy has five selections from Wednesday's racecard.

2:10 Pontefract - Bollin Ted (6/4)
Tim Easterby's Bollin Ted is bidding for a hat-trick and faces a 6lb hike up the weights this afternoon. He was awarded the race in the end, but he seems to be an improving type and can continue to improve.

4:30 Bath - Mordoree (7/2)
I have no doubt this horse is much better than his mark of 60 suggests, and I hope he can record a second successive victory at Bath this afternoon. He won quite easily at Nottingham last time out, and a 5lb raise is fair for him.

6:05 Kempton - Mutineer (5/1)
After a solid effort at Wolverhampton last time out, I think Daniel Kubler's three-year-old was very unlucky last time out and should go one better today. This race doesn't look as competitive on paper, and he remains unchanged by the handicapper. He likes the track, and all the signs are positive for him.

6:35 Kempton – Jus Pires (7/4)
A son of supersire Scat Daddy is Jus Pires, who should relish switching to the all-weather. He struggled on soft ground on debut, before narrowly losing out at Windsor last time out. He is bred very well, and should continue improving. This is a competitive maiden, but I expect a good performance.

9:05 Kempton - Maghfoor (3/1)
One Godolphin horse who looks to be one to strike on this handicap mark is Maghfoor. His maiden form has worked out very strong; Weekender, who beat him narrowly, has enjoyed Newmarket handicap victory since. Elsewhere the horses he beat in his sole victory, Humble Hero and Bristol Missile, have gone on to win since. Last time out he didn't beat a rival, and I am expecting him to bounce back.

Lucky 15 (Maghfoor/Jus Pires/Mutineer/Mordoree)
