Our top tipster has a huge number of stats at his disposal and has highlighted the horses it should pay to follow in Britain today
POUR LA VICTOIRE (4.00 Brighton)
It was a big advantage to come late and wide on the first two days of Brighton’s Festival Of Racing and, as usual, Tony Carroll has had a successful meeting. Since 2012, backing his Brighton runners during the month of August would have found 19 winners from 99 bets for a profit of £34.76 to a £1 level stake at SP. He had winners at 12-1 and 9-1 here on Wednesday and another pair (17-2 and 11-8f) yesterday. He has several runners on Friday, including four in the 6f Harry Bloom Memorial "Brighton Bullet” Handicap (4.00). POUR LA VICTOIRE, whose record in this race reads 1521 (2-4) looks to have been laid out to repeat last year’s victory and he gets the vote.
DESERT FOX (8.05 Chelmsford)
DESERT FOX was only eighth of 14 in a 7f Chelmsford handicap on his latest start but was always struggling after missing the break from a modest draw. The fourth and sixth – drawn poorly in stalls 13 and 12 respectively - both won their next starts (10-1 and 4-1) and Mike Murphy’s five-year-old can be forgiven his subsequent Yarmouth defeat as he’s now 0-8 on turf. His record in Chelmsford handicaps reads 11318 (3-5) and although not best drawn in stall eight of ten in Friday’s 6f Bet In Play At totesport.com Handicap (8.05), there’s plenty of early pace on his inside an he should have the race run to suit now that he returns to his optimum trip.
GEORGE MALLORY (8.25 Haydock)
Kevin Ryan is flying at present and his GEORGE MALLORY can break his duck in the 1m2f Rainhill Handicap at Haydock (8.25). He was only seventh at Beverley on his latest outing but actually fared second best of those to come from off the pace and clocked a decent time in the process. Fourth home Melgate Majeure, best of the closers that day, boosted the form with a win at Newcastle on Thursday evening.
