Wednesday's Best Bets: Turk can Turn your day into a winning one

After two wins from three tips yesterday, Tippin' Jimmy talks us through his selections on Wednesday's racing.

2:00 Musselburgh - Vj Day (9/2)
Earlier in the year Kevin Ryan told me he had very high hopes for Vj Day this season. He hasn't lived up to that promise in two starts since. Out of a Group One winning dam, he finished fifth on debut and sixth next time out. There's loads more to come, and he will win races. This is a decent maiden, but he could be worth a bet.

2:20 Catterick - Fairy Lights (11/4)
Although running very poorly on his last two starts, Fairy Lights should have a race in him and this looks an ideal opportunity. On his debut he looked like a good horse in the making, finishing under a length behind a victory. He needs to improve a lot here, but has the scope to do so.

6:35 Worcester - Keating (9/2)
David Pipe and Tom Scuadmore team up with Keating, my strongest fancy of the day. He cost a fair amount back in the sales ring in May, and finished off the season running well. The five-year-old made a promising seasonal bow when fourth at Newton Abbot, and wasn't beaten too far. He's been dropped 2lb since. Today his mark is appealing. Shanksforamillion is my worry.

7:05 Worcester - Horseshoe Bay (8/11)
I'm sure there is a lot of people excited to see this horse make his hurdling debut at Worcester. He was a brilliant horse on the flat winning a maiden by seven lengths, and running okay in the Group Three Bahrain Trophy. There is more to come, and if he takes to hurdling he should have a bold chance.

7:35 Worcester - Turn Turk (9/4)
Turn Turk is a horse who will win races this season. She's won two races, and finished second twice. Last time out she was defeated by a decent Paul Nicholls type and today's test doesn't seem as competitive for him. She's got plenty of good results ahead.

My Lucky 15 (Turn Turk/ Horseshoe Bay/ Keating/ Vj Day). £1 returns £488.
