Top tipster Andrew Mount struck with his 3-point (Clap Your Hands, SP 2-1) and 2-point (Windsorlot, SP 7-4) selections at Wolverhampton on Monday and has four picks for the all-weather cards at Chelmsford and Newcastle on Tuesday.
KRAZY PAVING (1.35 Chelmsford)
KRAZY PAVING has a strong seasonal pattern to his form, doing best from January to March. Had we bet him during this period, over 6f only, we would have won six of our 15 bets and made a profit of £32.50 to a £1 level stake at SP. Under apprentice jockeys, his record improves to 3111 (3-4). Grace McEntee steered him to a narrow victory in a 6f Chelmsford handicap last week - his first run following wind surgery - and the 7lb claimer can repeat the dose in the toteplacepot First Bet Of The Day Classified Stakes (1.35).
JUST NORMAN (3.15 Chelmsford)
JUST NORMAN had horses now rated 86, 82 and 75 ahead of him when fifth at Nottingham last summer and he could be well handicapped off a mark of just 58 in the 1m2f Ministry Of Sound And Light Extravaganza (3.15). He can be forgiven his two subsequent runs – he was 66-1 when down the field in a Newmarket novice contest then poorly drawn on his nursery debut at Leicester – and he’s well berthed in stall two this afternoon. He needs to improve but there’s every chance that he has over the winter and he’s worth chancing to small stakes at a monster price now that he steps up to 1m2f, a trip that should suit on breeding.
ATHOLLBLAIR BOY (5.50 Newcastle)
ATHOLLBLAIR BOY was only fourth of six when the 2-1 favourite for a 6f handicap at Newcastle last week but the time was quick for the grade and he can bounce back in the Betway Handicap over the same trip and track (5.50). The forecast headwind should make his patient running style more effective this time and the bigger field will help.
SILVER DUST (7.50 Newcastle)
SILVER DUST, who has failed to see out the mile trip on his last two starts, will appreciate the cut back to 7f in the Bombardier Golden Beer Handicap (7.50). His latest course and distance outing produced a 20-1 fourth of 13 in November, only losing out on second place close home, and he’s 6lb lower this time around.
