Betting Tip: Taurean Star @ SP with bet365

Michael Bell has entered Duck A L’Orange in the 1m maiden (7.00pm), a race won by the trainer’s Derby winner Motivator in 2004, and this son of Duke Of Marmalade (well-named, eh?) and Racing Post Trophy entry should go well on his debut. But whether he can see off the race-fit CULTURATI remains to be seen as Charlie Appleby’s runner showed plenty of promise when a close second here on his debut and he too has some fancy future entries. He can justify his short price tag.

Bell looks to have a better chance in the opening median auction maiden over 7f (5.30pm) with TAUREAN STAR, who is the mount of Jamie Spencer. The son of Elnadim was noted putting in some good late work when fourth on his Doncaster debut, beaten only three lengths behind three horses who had all been placed previously. He’s clearly well regarded at home as he has entries in the Group 2 Royal Lodge and Group 1 Dewhurst and normal improvement on his second start, to be expected from the stable juveniles, will make him hard to beat.
