This column has been among the winners recently 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 who could outrun their odds in Britain and Ireland today
John Gosden trains an odds-on favourite that is difficult to oppose in this race but Hong Kong Harry could be a decent each-way alternative as his trainer Richard Fahey has a 50 per cent strike-rate with his two-year-olds who make their debut at this track.
It’s worth waiting until near the off of this race to see if jockey Ciaran Gethings is putting up any extra weight on this three-year-old. Gethings has not ridden below 10st 2lb in the last two months but is due to carry just 10st here. If he makes the weight, it could be a pointer to the filly’s chances.
There is absolutely no need to discard a winning system and this column has previously benefited from this angle. Trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies has a 67 per cent strike-rate with his newcomers in bumpers, which makes Waitonit worth a second look at Worcester.
