William HaggasThis column highlighted the chance of Marlborough Sands on Sunday, who finished second at 25/1 and it’s back again on the hunt for more success. We’ve trawled the cards to find those runners in Britain and Ireland who could well outrun their odds.

WHISPER ALOUD (2.00 Lingfield)

Trainer Archie Watson has a 50 per cent strike-rate with horses who are running within seven days of being declared non-runners. Whisper Aloud was taken out of a race at Southwell last Thursday with a vet’s certificate and can be expected to run well here judged by Watson’s previous runners.

APPLES ACRE (4.45 Newcastle)

Ben Haslam’s overall strike-rate of 14 per cent rises to 24 per cent when we focus only on his runners wearing first-time cheekpieces in the last two years. Apples Acre wears that headgear at Newcastle and an improved run can be expected.

TOMORROW’S DREAM (3.45 Newcastle)

Leading jockey Daniel Tudhope has a 71 per cent strike-rate when riding for William Haggas at Newcastle this year, with five winners from seven runners. You would also have made a profit by backing every one of Haggas’s runners ridden by Tudhope since 2015, so Tomorrow’s Dream should be a serious player on debut
