Today’s tips

Tom Segal’s top tip

Roulston Scar (4.30 York)
Bumped into two very well-handicapped sprinters at this track last time but still put in an improved effort under Megan Nicholls, who is back on again. Step up to 6f will be a big help and will be extremely hard to catch off only 2lb higher.
