Our website tipster has taken aim at the eight-race card at Nottingham on Wednesday which will be shown live on Racing TV.

1.15 Nottingham: Espresso Freddo

Espresso Freddo is ideally suited by a mile these days and can follow up his decisive Windsor victory here.

He usually does best finishing late off a strong pace and that looks pretty much assured here, and heavy ground is absolutely no issue for him.

He will be fresher than most in this competitive field and although he has a 5lb penalty for his win, it takes him up to a rating of 73 which he has won off on the all-weather, as well as performing respectably on turf.

Jamie Spencer rides this hold-up horse for the first time and his mount has plenty in his favour.

2.20 Nottingham: Zapper Cass

This seven-year-old was a 16-1 second for this column last time out and I fancied him because it seemed likely he would get the lead at Catterick, and maybe stay there.

Watch how Zapper Cass fared at Catterick last time out

In the end, he was always battling for the lead with the heavily-backed favourite Redrosezorro, and eventually got outgunned close home, but it was still a very good run.

He is off the same mark here and in a similar situation in that he looks set to lead on a course that such tactics are often favoured, so I am trusting him to go very well again.

2.50 Nottingham: Chicago Doll

Chicago Doll might have been out of her depth last time when trying to pick up black type at Bath, but she has run consistently well off a rating of 86 this summer and although she can’t claim to be well handicapped, her rivals here look to be at the top of their handicap range as well.

It is possible that Chicago Doll ran her best ever race under similar conditons when splitting Vindolanda and Nuits St George over this trip at Haydock, and both of those horses now run off higher marks, so the form looks strong.

Tom Marquand, who has won on her before, is back on board here and if soft ground is the key, then she should beat some very exposed, but consistent rivals, on Wednesday.
