Our experts from around Britain and Ireland reveal their best bets of the day

Sandown has a seven-race Flat card on Friday
1 of 1

Newmarket: Anthony Burke

Red Striker(4.25 Sandown, nap)

Looked to be undone by the muddling pace on his handicap debut at Nottingham last time. Still produced a solid effort and with this race likely to be run to suit he can register a first win now he is back among his own age group.

North:Colin Russell

Up Ten Down Two(3.25 Wolverhampton, nap)

Lightly raced in recent seasons but ideally suited by Tapeta, has won over C&D and fancied to give a good account on first run since a solid effort at Nottingham in May.

Lambourn: James Burn

Fast Dancer(6.55 Hamilton, nap)

Kinder conditions should suit this capable six-year-old who was below par on fast ground at Ascot on King George day before getting back on track when third at Windsor last time. In top order at home, he should make a bold bid under promising apprentice Finley Marsh, who knows him well.

Wolverhampton 6.35 Rock Icon

Racing Post Ratings: Sam Walker

Dakota Gold(4.45 Thirsk)

Improved into a smart handicapper last autumn and has since slipped back to a workable mark. Hit the frame in the Great St Wilfrid last time and entitled to go close down in grade.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Red Striker(4.25 Sandown)

Favourite when unable to match strides with his conqueror at Nottingham last month but the easier ground here may help him recoup losses.

Longshot:Dave Revers

Sharp And Sharper(4.30 Wolverhampton)

The Kodiac colt may be overlooked as he's been running in sellers and claimers but Amy Murphy's horses are in good form and Silvestre de Sousa is an eyecatching jockey booking.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Verhoyen(7.50 Curragh)

Beaten half a length by Gopsies Daughter over the course and5f trip six days ago, the Michael Grassick-trained son of Piccolo gets the vote to reverse placings with that rival.

The Raceform Interactive nugget

Since 2015 Sir Michael Stoute-trained horses in 0-80 3yo-only handicaps at Sandown have finished a magnificent 111211. One of those winners was wearing first-time cheekpieces, soRed Striker in the 4.25 looks a statistically strong bet.
