Nottingham, October 6, 2021

Five meetings take place across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday, one of which is a Flat card from Nottingham.

With eight races on the menu, the action begins at 1.55pm and runs until 5.50pm.

And we have picked out five horses for you to follow.

1.55pm – MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing EBF Novice Stakes (6f)
In what was his seventh appearance on the track, ELDRICKJONES got off the mark last time out in a maiden at Pontefract (6f).

He was well fancied ahead of that race and justified the support.

It was a smart performance as he was badly bumped in the early stages of that victory and there should be much more to come from Roger Fell’s runner.

The cheekpieces will be worn for the first time here and he should have too much class for his rivals in this novice contest.

2.30pm – MansionBet Beaten By A Head Fillies’ Handicap (1m6f)
John and Thady Gosden’s filly FUTURE is a daughter of Galileo so a lot has been expected of her in the early stages of her career.

She has prevailed just once so far in four outings., with her sole success coming at Windsor (1m2f).

The three-year-old has shaped like she will appreciate further so this step up to 1m6f looks a smart move.

She is still unexposed and if this extra distance does suit, we may see the best of her.

3.05pm – British EBF Future Stayers Oath Novice Stakes (1m½f)

GRENOBLE made an encouraging start to his career when he finished second of five runners in a novice contest at Yarmouth (7f) back in August.

The horse which beat him is now in Listed company so that form is strong.

William Haggas’ runner should step up from his opening start now he knows what it is all about.

Pontefract winner Approachability will be his biggest danger but he will be receiving a handy 6lb from Mark Johnston’s mount.

4.15pm – British Stallion Studs EBF Nursery Handicap (1m2f)
A debut success came at Epsom (7f) for NEW PURSUIT but he has been unable to add to his tally in two starts since then.

He was not too far behind on his latest effort at Windsor (1m) and the two-year-old colt should improve for this step up to 1m2f.

He has gone up just 1lb to a new mark of 81, which looks very workable.

It is a wide-open race but the New Bay colt might just be able to edge it.

5.50pm – MansionBet Watch And Bet Apprentice Handicap (1m2f)
After two failed attempts at a trip further than this, CRESTWOOD is back down to 1m2, the distance he prevailed over three starts ago at Lingfield on their turf course.

Joseph Parr’s gelding appreciates rain in the ground so if conditions remain ‘Soft’, he will have an excellent chance of recording his second success.
