Top tipster Andrew Mount was among the winners again on Sunday thanks to Byline (100-30 from 9-2) and has three single bets plus a win double for Monday
WINDSORLOT – 1.45 Haydock
WINDSORLOT performs best in big fields, especially after a recent outing. When returned to the track withing 28 days of his previous run, his record over one mile or further in fields of 11 or more runners reads 162312107049 (3-12) for a profit of £20.00 to a £1 level stake at SP. He’s ridden by a very inexperienced apprentice but his worth chancing to very small stakes in the hope/expectation of a strong gallop.
WINTER SNOWDROP – 3.00 Yarmouth
‘Very small. Oppose all starts’ is my tracker entry for Visor and I’m happy to take on the 5-1 shot again at Yarmouth on Monday. The son of Helmet took his career record to 0-13 when only sixth (5-1) at Kempton last time and his presence at shortish odds suggests there’s value elsewhere. WINTER SNOWDROP could be the one to benefit and he has the assistance of 7lb claimer Tyler Heard, whose record on horses starting at single-figure prices (ie, at 9-1 or shorter) reads 2414511 (3-7) for a profit of £7.33 to a £1 level stake at SP. Julia Feilden’s four-year-old found only the odds-on Grand Canal too good when 16-1 over trip and track last time and was also placed in his only other course outing.
PRINCE DES SABLES – 3.15 Haydock
PRINCE DES SABLES has a strong seasonal pattern to his form, doing best in August and September. His full record during these two months reads 1111148 (5-7), improving to 11111 (5-5) in handicaps. He was well beaten at York last time but that was his first run for several months and he’s worth chancing to small stakes despite dropping back from is optimum 6f trip.
JACINTH – 3.30 Yarmouth
First-season sire New Bay has made a good start to life at stud and had we backed all of his progeny we would have won seven of our 22 bets and made a profit of £12.73 to £1 at SP. Those who were beaten on their debuts have form figure at the second time of asking of 111123 (4-6), with the runner-up effort by a nose. JACINTH was too green to do herself justice on her debut at Newbury but kept on well into third and can get off the mark this time.
RIVAL – 3.45 Haydock
Andrew Balding-trained juveniles who are beaten by less than ten lengths on their racecourse debuts are profitable to back second-time out, winning 72 of their 275 starts since 2006 (26.2% strike-rate) for a profit of £62.02 to a £1 level stake at SP. This year, his record is five from eight (+£11.21) and RIVAL, runner-up in a 7f Haydock novice last time, can go one better over the same course and distance.
