Our team has picked out our three value picks for the night’s contests who may be underestimated by bookmakers in Sunbury-on-Thames prior to the starter dropping the flag and the stalls flying open.

Here are our selections…

DREAM BY DAY: 6:45pm British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes [GBB Race] | 7f

John & Thady Gosden are in fine form, have a great course record here this year and are thriving with two-year-old’s on the all-weather scene with a 50% win rate in 2021. Despite stable-mate Altraif carrying more experience, he will likely be shorter in the market so it could be worth siding with the son of Shalaa to give a creditable account on debut.

SIAMSA: 7:15pm Longines Irish Champions Weekend EBF ‘Confined’ Fillies’ Novice Stakes [GBB Race] | 7f

A well-bred daughter of Starspangledbanner, Richard Hannon’s filly ran well on debut given that she didn’t look the most straightforward of types, looking very green and slowly away from the break. However, she plugged on in eyecatching-enough fashion and it’s interesting that connections now step her down to seven furlongs. Thore Hammer Hansen claims a useful 3lb off her back and that can help her make the frame.

MICKS DREAM: 7:45pm Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap | 6f

With the form of his Salisbury second working out well, an opening handicap mark of 70 may not be too overwhelming for Roger Teal’s colt. He’s perhaps underwhelmed on his subsequent two starts but a switch to this sphere can bring improvement and Robert Havlin is booked up once again in a contest where plenty of rivals have something to prove.
