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.
ASO (2.00 Huntingdon)
I took a chance on ASO in last month’s Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby but he ruined his chance by racing on the deeper ground towards the inside rail for much of the race. Charlie Deutsch finally got him out of the ‘swamp’ with about a mile to go and he looked threatening coming around the home turn but a mistake at the last knocked the stuffing out of him and he ultimately failed to see out the 3m1f trip, fading into a nine-length third. He was 24 lengths in front of the fifth, Top Ville Ben, who also took the inside route and that on every nearly landed the Rehearsal Chase at Newcastle next time. The drop back to 2m4f looks ideal in the Fitzdares Peterborough Chase (2.00).
CHIDSWELL (2.15 Kelso)
CHIDSWELL was pulled up Perth in June on is latest putting but was always struggling and reportedly lost a front shoe. The track might not have been ideal either – his three runs at Perth have returned figures of 5PP (0-3) – and he can bounce back in the Edinburgh Gin Veterans’ Handicap Chase at Kelso (2.15). Ten-year-olds who finish sixth or worse on their latest outing are profitable to back in veterans’ handicap chases, winning 49 of their 322 starts (15.2% strike-rate) for a profit of £76.70 to a £1 level stake at SP. Trainer Nicky Richards has had two previous qualifiers in 2019 and both won (11-2 and 5-2).
