Horse racing tips for Sunday: Angus McNae's four best bets

The Racing TV presenter has selections for Nottingham and Kilbeggan on Sunday, live on Racing TV, plus one at Fakenham.

3.45 Nottingham: Point Lynas

This four-year-old, who is trained by Ed Bethell, finished an excellent second behind Croupier in a competitive class 2 handicap at York in May, and must have a good chance in this contest that is not as tough.

He was only narrowly beaten there, having travelled strongly, and he had previously finished last in the Lincoln, but that was on ground far too soft for him, and he is clearly much more effective on fast ground.

He looks to have a good chance of enhancing Bethell's fine record this season.

3.50 Kilbeggan: Movie King

Movie King did well to win last time out and is taken to defy a 7lb penalty here.

He was given a patient ride at Down Royal before quickening clear after the last where he still had five lengths to make up on those in front of him.

He was clearly a fair bit better than the bare result, and arrives in good form. Trainer Tony Martin is enjoying a resurgence in form, too, and if this six-year-old can get a reasonable gallop to aim at, he looks capable of scoring again.

4.45 Nottingham: Reach

This filly has only had six starts and appears to be totally unexposed.

She showed a bright turn of foot when winning her maiden at Pontefract last season and was an excellent fourth in a class 4 event last time out.

This represents a drop in grade, which should mean that she is hard to beat. She has a decent turn of foot, too, and generally travels well. On her third start of the season, she looks ready to score.

5.00 Fakenham: Sisterandbrother

Harry Cobden makes his way to Fakenham for five rides on Sunday afternoon, and this could be the winner that makes his trip worthwhile.

Sisterandbrother has had just a couple of starts over hurdles and improved from his debut over obstacles when winning at Huntingdon last time out.

He wore a tongue tie for the first time at Huntingdon and showed a good attitude to rally having jumped well throughout.

He tackles a handicap for the first time here off a rating of 104 which, based upon his flat rating of 57, is not too harsh.

This sharp two miles will suit him, and he should go close.
