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.
SEA OF MYSTERY (3.40 Yarmouth)
SEA OF MYSTERY landed a Leicester apprentice handicap in a fast time last week and the form has already been franked by the runner-up Orange Suit who went one better at Bath at the weekend. He escapes a penalty for that success and can be backed in the La Continental Café Of Great Yarmouth Handicap (3.40).
BREATH OF SPRING (4.10 Yarmouth)
Yarmouth’s Moulton Nurseries Of Acle Novice Stakes (4.10) has the perfect shape for each-way betting, with nine runners and an odds-on favourite. The one to back each-way at a nice price is Marco Botti’s BREATH OF SPRING, who could never get into contention under a hold-up ride from a poor wide draw when a 50-1 ninth of 12 at Chelmsford last month. The fifth from that race – Lady Bowthorpe - who was also ridden patiently, landed a gamble at Lingfield next time and the sixth, seventh and eighth have all run well in defeat subsequently. Blinkers go on for the first-time today and the yard’s runners often improve for this headgear. In the past five years those who were fitted with blinkers for their second career outing recorded form figures of 4815264536 (1-10), with the win at 14-1 and the two places at massive prices (50-1 and 66-1). Expect a more attacking ride this time, which will be no bad thing given that the wind is forecast to be behind the runners in the straight.
THE TRENDY MAN (8.00 Newcastle)
Progeny of Dandy Man have a good record on Tapeta, winning 50 of their 438 starts (11.4% strike-rate) for a huge profit of £208.62 to a £1 level stake at SP. THE TRENDY MAN has hardly set the world alight in five turf outings but the switch to a synthetic surface could bring about the required improvement in the 7f Max Recycle Nursery Handicap (8.00) and his dam ran second at 25-1 on her all-weather handicap debut before scoring at Lingfield shortly afterwards. His middle draw should help him to get cover and he looks overpriced at around the 25-1 mark.
