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.
BEE CROSSING (12.30 Southwell)
Michael Scudamore’s BEE CROSSING looks set to appreciate the switch to fences in the 3m Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Mares’ Novices’ Handicap Chase at Southwell (12.30). This point winner has run several good races in defeat over hurdles and has had wind surgery since her latest outing. Her trainer does well with runners making their handicap chase debuts, scoring with 11 of the 53 qualifiers since 2008 (20.8% strike-rate) for a profit of £34.75 to a £1 level stake at SP. Those that had prepped over hurdles were 10-38 (26.3%) for a profit of £43.75.
STORM AHEAD (5.15 Wolverhampton)
STORM AHEAD has run cracking races on both previous visits to Wolverhampton, doing best of the closers when an 18-1 third over the 8.6f trip in October and appreciating the step up to 9.4f when scoring at 28-1 the following month. There are only six runners in the Betway Apprentice Handicap on Tuesday (5.15) but he still looks set to encounter the required honest pace and he could prove hard to beat.
THREE LITTLE BIRDS (5.45 Wolverhampton)
I’m siding with recent course and distance winner THREE LITTLE BIRDS in the 5f Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap (5.45) despite her wide draw in stall ten. The ‘dead’ rail gave those drawn middle to high the advantage here last Saturday, and again last night, and Sylvester Kirk’s four-year-old has an all-weather record away from Chelmsford of 21122521 (3-8).
