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.
OSCAR ROBERTSON (12.10 Wetherby)
Taking the inside route in hurdle races on soft ground at Wetherby is rarely a good idea yet OSCAR ROBERTSON hacked up in the opening 2m3f novice contest on November 16th despite racing in the 'swamp' throughout. He'd shaped well form off the pace when mid-division in a Chepstow bumper on his comeback five weeks earlier and clearly relished the step up in trip on his hurdles debut. He'll get further still on this evidence. The extra distance will suit when he returns to Wetherby for the racingtv.com Novices Hurdle (12.10)
WATAR ALLSTAR (12.15 Sandown)
WATAR ALLSTAR was beaten by 37 lengths at Exeter on reappearance but did third best of those to come from off the pace on a track that was strongly favouring prominent racers. The impressive winner, Sporting John, who was also ridden patiently, followed up at Sandown yesterday and the fourth, KIssesforkatie, won easily at Wincanton on Thursday and the fifth, Eritage, landed the odds by 19 lengths at Taunton on his next outing. It’s possible that we won’t see the best of Watar Allstar until he runs in a handicap but at a big price he can be chanced in the Peter & Thelma Brooks Diamond Anniversary “National Hunt” Novices Hurdle at Sandown (12.15).
DOLOS (3.00 Sandown)
DOLOS made a highly encouraging return to action when runner-up to Janika in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter last month and is taken to reverse the form in the Betfair Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown on Saturday (3.00).
The Paul Nicholls-trained six-year-old hails from a yard with a great record in this race and Dolos has improved this year, recording form figures of 112 (2-3) on right-handed tracks, recording his three best RPRs (Racing Post Ratings) in the process. He bolted up by four lengths on his last run over course and distance and, given his liking for a strongly-run race, there could be more to come now that he steps up in class. His full Sandown record reads 221 (1-3) and with the dead eight runners due to line up the place part of an each-way bet looks especially enticing.
GETCHAGETCHAGETCHA (7.20 Wolverhampton)
GETCHAGETCHAGETCHA disappointed at Leicester on his latest start but he failed to settle in that four-runner line-up and raced closest to the inside rail where the ground was virtually waterlogged. He’s been gelded since and while Clive Cox isn’t in the greatest form he had a couple run well at Kempton this week. His trainer does well when he runs one in an all-weather handicap for the first time, scoring with 18 of the 63 qualifiers since the start of last year (28.6% strike-rate) for a profit of £22.66 to a £1 level stake. His sire, Champs Elysees, has a good recent record at Wolverhampton and it all points to a big run in the 1m4f Betway Handicap (7.20)
