This column advised backing 40/1 Chelmsford winner Last Date on Thursday and 5/1 Tipperary scorer Yulong Gold Fairy on Sunday and it’s back again as we go on the hunt for big-priced winners and horses who have slipped under the radar. Here are those runners who could outrun their odds in Britain and Ireland today
This horse is a huge price but he could outrun his price as his trainer Ben Haslam’s strike-rate leaps from an overall 14 per cent to 21 per cent when focusing only on those runners competing in first-time cheekpieces in the last two years. Calevade wears that headgear today.
It has paid to follow trainer David Bridgwater’s handicap chase debutants in the last five years. Bridgwater has a 20 per cent strike-rate with those runners, while you would have made a profit of £46 if you’d placed £1 on each of those runners. That makes Wenceslaus a decent bet today.
Tom amateur rider Jamie Codd has a 40 per cent strike-rate when riding for trainer John Queally in the last five years and you would have made a profit if you’d backed every one of their runners in that time. The pair team up with Arcadian Sunrise in the final race at Tipperary.
