This column has been more than paying its way and we highlighted the chance of 14/1 stunner Tigerskin on Tuesday. Here are more horses who may have slipped under the radar today.
This horse’s form figures of PP hardly strikes him out as worthy of a punt but this horse has joined the top stable of Colin Tizzard since his last run. Tizzard has a 20 per cent strike-rate with runners having their first run for him after joining from another yard and he has booked Harry Cobden, who has just one ride at the meeting.
Trainer Kevin Ryan has a better strike-rate with horses running for the first time after a gelding operation than he does with the rest of his string. So, while Out Of Here may have kissed a stallion career goodbye, he could well take some comfort in visiting the winner’s enclosure for the first time this evening.
Fergal O’Brien has a 12 per cent strike-rate with his runners in the last two seasons but that soars to 28 per cent when focusing only on his runners in first-time cheekpieces. Marzano may have plenty to find on form but he could be a decent each-way price at 33/1.
This horse is another likely to go off at big odds but could be worth an each-way bet based on the trainer/jockey combination. Killian Leonard has ridden only three times for trainer Patrick Martin at Gowran this season, but two have won for a level-stakes profit of £28 to a £1 stake. No Way Jack was an eyecatcher at Naas last time and can be backed at around 20/1.
