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.
SEE FOREVER (1.10 Uttoxeter)
Fergal O’Brien has done well with ‘switchers’ (horses he takes over from other trainers) in recent years, scoring with 19 of the 83 qualifiers since 2016 (22.9% strike-rate) for a profit of £46.52 to a £1 level stake at SP. SEA FOREVER, who makes her debut for the yard in the 2m4f mares’ novices’ handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter, looks a potential improver in the first-time tongue-tie after leaving Paul Webber’s care.
MORTENS LEAM won this 2m5.5f handicap chase by 23 lengths last year and can repeat the dose off a 3lb higher mark. He’ll be fit after two quick runs at Ffos Las and Plumpton last month and his full handicap record in December stands at 116 (2-3), with the defeat excusable as he failed to stay 3m4f.
BERYL THE PETAL (5.15 Wolverhampton)
BERYL THE PETAL has lost all eight starts on good to soft or softer turf so I’m happy to forgive her a poor run at Catterick last time. She won at the same venue off a mark of 77 on fast ground in the summer and is 1lb lower for her return to Tapeta in the 6f Betway Handicap (5.15). She hasn’t had many opportunities on the all-weather but has a Tapeta record of 24233 (0-5) suggesting each-way claims tonight. The downside is the big field, as her three carer wins have come in fields of nine, seven and five runners. However, the drop back down to Class 5 level will help and we might get a non-runner or three come post time once the ‘bad draw certificates’ are played.
