Race of the Day – 26 Jun

Race of the Day - 20:40 Southwell

We head to Southwell and an evening jumps card for Race of the Day, and a three mile 0-100 handicap hurdle.

The champion jockey Richard Johnson is on the current favourite Withoutdefavourite, who is around 9/4. He has his first race for trainer Tim Vaughan today (as can be seen by the blue TC next to the horse's name), and Vaughan has a reasonable record here at Southwell.

Polarbrook has been running consistently without winning, however, he has now dropped to a good looking handicap mark and if he runs well he can definitely take advantage of that.

There are not a lot of green sections on the Instant Expert report, which shows the lack of any real class in this race.

Tidestream does have two sections of green, including winning on his only previous visit here. He hasn't been in the winning enclosure since that win over two years ago, but he is now seven pounds lower so if the extra distance in this one brings out the best of him, he could be a player.

Fled Or Pled has one section of green and two of amber, and he is one of only two runners in this field to have won over today's distance. That win was earlier in the year at Towcester and he was raised seven pounds that win, so still has it to prove that he is capable from this higher mark.

The Pace Report shows that early leaders here over this distance have a good record, with 13.78% of them winning the race, for a level stakes profit of 21.84.

Withoutdefavourite and French Seventyfive have the highest pace scores based on the last four races of each horse, and they look the most likely to be taking them along through the early part of the race.

If the above two runners try and take each other on up front, it could be quite a fast pace for the distance, which would set things up nicely for a holdup horse that has good amounts of stamina.

We can see that Derek Shaw has an excellent record here at Southwell over the past year, from looking at the Trainer Statistics report. This is a brilliant report which is really helpful for highlighting courses that certain trainers excel on.

Over the last year, he's had ten winners (18.52%) and 17 places (31.48%) from 54 runners, for level stakes profits of 84.25 and 82.74 respectively. He runs Polarbrook here today who is currently as 4/1 shot.

Race of the Day – 22 Jun

Race of the Day - 16:35 Ripon

This is a very good looking nine furlong handicap on good ground at Ripon, and it's attracted a quality field.

Mulligatawny hasn't been in the winners enclosure recently, however he has been running well enough and he is at the top of the Speed Ratings.

Sands Chorus has won twice in his last three races including last time out here at Ripon, and his trainer James Given has enjoyed coming here recently. Over the past year he's had four winners (33.33%) and six places (50.00%) from 12 runners, for level stakes profits of 9.00 and 11.43 respectively.

The Instant Expert report is available to all registered users for every race on a Thursday, and it'a an excellent report for quickly highlighting horses that are well suited by the race conditions are that particular day.

Sands Chorus shows up really well when the report is on the 'Place' setting, with four sections of green and one of amber. This Footstepsinthesand gelding has been placed in all three starts here at Ripon (winning twice), and nine furlongs looks to be his optimum distance. He has been raised a further three pounds for his win last time out, but looks sure to give another good account of himself.

The rest of the field have just sporadic sections of green, although Magic City is definitely at home on today's ground and was also a winner last time out.

From looking at the Pace report we can see that horses that are held up and those that run in mid division have the best records, with each of those styles having a strike rate of 14.29%. There isn't huge difference between the four running styles however and it is from a limited data set.

Sands Chorus and Beach Bar are confirmed front runners and they have easily the highest pace scores in this field, which means it looks very likely that they will be taking them along through the first few furlongs. They are drawn close to each other as well (stalls nine and seven).

Race of the Day – 21 Jun

Race of the Day - 18:40 Chelmsford

We head to the evening meeting on the all weather at Chelmsford for Race of the Day, and quite a good looking handicap being run over ten furlongs.

Warrior Prince, trained by Ed Dunlop is the current favourite and he is making his handicap debut in this race. His four runs to date have all been over a mile, so it is interesting to see him being tried over a further two furlongs. Dunlop has a 10% higher win rate with handicap debutants when compared to his overall strike rate, therefore appears very astute at placing them.

The Gay Cavalier was a good winner last time out over this distance on the polytrack at Lingfield, and only has two pounds extra to carry today. His trainer, John Ryan, has been in useful form of late, with three winners (25.00%) and five places (41.67%) from 12 runners, for level stakes profits of 29.00 and 31.95 respectively.

Graceful James comes out very nicely when looking at the Instant Expert report, with three sections of green and two of amber.  He has won here at Chelmsford previously, and is just the three pounds higher than for his last win. He didn't like the good to firm ground on turf last time out, so is switched straight back to the all weather and should go well.

Classic Villager has two sections of green and two of amber, however he is a full ten pounds higher than for his last win, so will need the change of surroundings (he's having his first run for Dean Ivory today), to bring out a marked improvement if he is going to get involved in this.

Chelmsford is a course that is known for it being tough to come from behind on, and the Pace report proves this. Early leaders here over this distance have a brilliant record, with 25.89% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 94.40.

Warrior Prince has easily the highest pace score based on the last four races, and looks the most likely early leader. Quite a lot of this field like to be held up so it may be that they struggle to get into the race at all.

The Trainer Statistics report is available to all users on a Wednesday, and it highlights what a good long term record Chris Dwyer has here at Chelmsford. Over the past five years he's had 27 winners (18.24%) and 53 places (35.81%) from 148 runners, for level stakes profits of 52.42 and 39.79 respectively. He runs Foie Gras in this who has been running consistently and looks to be in with a chance at 15/2.

Race of the Day – 20 Jun

Race of the Day - 18:10 Brighton

There are just the six runners for this seven furlong handicap at Brighton, but it is a wide open race with all six in with a chance.

Beepeecee is trained by Richard Hughes and won last time out at Salisbury over seven furlongs and on similar ground. He has been raised six pounds for that win, but is clearly in good shape and further improvement would not be a surprise. Hughes is in very good form and as over the last 14 days he's had seven winners (23.33%) and 14 places (46.67%) from 30 runners, for level stakes profits of 18.00 and 28.73 respectively. He also has a decent record with last time out winners.

Pass The Cristal is the current favourite just ahead of Beepeecee at the head of the market, and he is chasing a hat trick after wins at Brighton and Beverley over seven furlongs. He has been raised nine pounds as a result of those two wins, and the return to much firmer ground is a worry. His two runs on today's good to firm going have resulted in poor efforts, so he has a little bit to prove he can cope with these underfoot conditions. Both his trainer and jockey do have very good long term records here at Brighton though.

The Shortlist is the report that is available to all users on a Tuesday, and Pass The Cristal makes it onto here with a score of 11. He has four sections of green, showing he is very well suited by today's conditions, apart from the ground which is red, and has been mentioned above.

The Instant Expert report confirms the good showing of Pass The Cristal, and also highlights that the rest of the field are particularly well suited by this race.

Still Waiting is the only other runner in the field with a green section when on the 'Place' setting.

Both Beepeecee and Whitely have won on today's going however, and I think that is quite an important aspect in the context of this race.

When looking at the Pace report we can see that early leaders here over this distance have a very good record, with 19.31% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 95.62.

Al Mansor usually pulls quite hard and is a confirmed front runner. In a field where there is little pace elsewhere, it looks very likely that he will be leading the way through the first couple of furlongs. Timmy Murphy may be able to get a very soft lead with the others waiting in behind, and if the firmer ground brings out an improvement in him, he has slipped down the weights enough to be able to take advantage and make all.

Race of the Day – 19 Jun

Race of the Day - 19:15 Windsor

This is a good quality six furlong handicap on good to firm ground at Windsor.

The Richard Hughes trained King Of Spin has been on a very good run, winning three of his last five races, with one of those races being over course and distance. He has gone up the handicap quite a bit as a result of those three wins, and hasn't raced on ground firmer than good. Therefore, he will need to have improved again to win with this weight, and the unknown on this ground is a concern.

The current favourite is Bahamian Dollar, at a price of around 9/4. He hasn't been winning but has run consistently in a number of races, with three second places in his last five races. His sole win was over six furlongs on this ground, however he was held last time out from today's mark, and this looks a stronger race.

With the Instant Expert report on the 'Place' setting, it is Pretty Bubbles who stands out from the rest. She has four sections of green and one of amber, showing that these conditions are definitely to her liking. She has been dropped another pound in the weights after her last run, but is still five pounds higher than for her last win, therefore she is going to have to be somewhere close to her best to get (which isn't out of the question with conditions to suit) to be involved in this.

Bahamian Dollar also looks reasonably well suited by this one, with two sections of green and three of amber.

The Pace report shows us that early leaders here over this distance have a very good record, with 18.16% of them winning the race, for a level stakes profit of 39.78.

Ginzan and Handytalk both usually race very prominently early on, and it looks likely that the early lead will be between these two.

Pretty Bubbles is usually held up but it will be interesting to see if James Doyle tries a different tactic this time, in a bid to change her fortunes.

From looking at the Trainer Statistics report we can see that Eve Johnson Houghton continues to be in an excellent run of form. Over the past 30 days she's had 12 winners (22.64%) and 25 places (47.17%) from 53 runners, for level stakes profits of 44.75 and 56.72 respectively. She runs Cool Bahamian in this who is currently priced at around 10/1.

Race of the Day – 16 Jun

Race of the Day - 21:05 Chepstow

This is quite a low grade two mile handicap at Chepstow, but it is a really open race from a betting perspective, that can hopefully be narrowed down to a few possible winners.

Kashgar was a winner last time out over course and distance, however that was on slightly firmer ground, and he has been raised two pounds for that win. His trainer, Bernard Llewellyn, has a pretty good record with his long distance flat runners, and doesn't do too badly with last time out winners.

Urban Space has come tumbling down the weights over the past year to what is a very attractive mark, if he can rediscover some form. He was well beaten over course and distance last time out, but the return to good going will definitely suit, and he has since been dropped a further three pounds.

A few of these runners look quite good on the Instant Expert report, with My Mo having three sections of green and two of amber. He has won the only time he has raced here and definitely has a liking for today's going.

Urban Space has three sections of green and two of amber, and is also six pounds lower than for his last victory.

Both of these horses appear very well suited by today's racing conditions, and it wouldn't surprise me if either of them went very close.

The Pace report shows that both early leaders here over this distance and prominent runners have the best records, however, as could be reasonably expected for a flat race of this length, it doesn't have a huge bias.

Kirkman, Skylark Lady and See And Be Seen are all usually very handy and with the three of them being quite keen to get on with things, this may be run at quite a decent pace for the distance.

Horses For Courses is the report that is available to all users on a Friday, and it shows what an excellent record Urban Space has here at Chepstow. He has won four times (36.36%) and been placed 9 times (81.82%) from 11 races, for level stakes profits of 10.50 and 20.28 respectively. In a race that I don't think will take a lot of winning and with conditions in his favour, I think he is overpriced at 9/1.

Race of the Day – 15 Jun

Race of the Day - 15:40 Newbury

This is a wide open one mile handicap at Newbury, with some useful looking horses that are on the upgrade.

Kingston Kurrajong is one of the outsiders in the field at 16/1, however he is the highest on the Speed Ratings. He jockey, Jim Crowely, also has a good record here at Newbury. Over the past year he's had seven winners (23.33%) and 15 places (50.00%) from 30 runners, for level stakes profits of 25.13 and 37.89 respectively.

Kestrel Dot Com was a winner in his last race on turf (he was unplaced on the all weather last time out), and a return to similar conditions to that win could see him go well again here today. His trainer, Chris Dwyer, has a particularly good record with his horses in handicap races. He's had 51 winners (16.09%) and 107 places (33.75%) from 317 runners, for level stakes profits of 73.75 and 27.19 respectively.

The Instant Expert report is available to all users on a Thursday, and it's an excellent report for quickly highlighting any runners that are well suited by the day's racing conditions.

Dubai's Secret is one of those such horses, with four sections of green and one of amber. He is also just the one pound higher than for his last win (which incidentally was here at Newbury over a mile last summer) and looks to have everything in his favour to produce a big run, and therefore appears a tad overpriced at the current 11/1.

Mullionheir has three sections of green and is seven pounds lower than for his last win. He has been racing on the all weather courses over what appear to be inadequate distances (although he has been bred for speed), and with conditions to suit, it will be interesting to see how he goes in his first attempt at a mile.

The Pace report shows that early leaders here over this distance have the best record, with 13.08% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 7.20.

Mullionheir, Golden Wedding and Capton all have identical pace scores based on their last four runs and look the most likely to be the fastest away. None of them are consistently front runners however, and it may be that there isn't a great deal of pace to the race early on, which would help any runners in the race where stamina over a mile may be a question mark.

Race of the Day – 14 Jun

Race of the Day - 15:00 Haydock

This is a very useful looking three year old handicap over a mile at Haydock, where there is currently quite a bit of give underfoot, and a good to soft going.

There are several recent winners in the field, including Sidewinder, who is chasing a hat trick. Trained by Tom Dascombe and ridden by Richard Kingscote, both of his recent wins were over course and distance, but on good to firm going. He has also be raised seven pounds for those two wins, so will need to have improved again to take this. Sidewinder also has the highest Speed Rating in this field.

Hugin has only had the two runs to date, but was a winner last time on the all weather at Newcastle, and gave the impression that the extra furlong would really suit. His trainer David Simcock, has a very good record with last time out winners. He's had 37 winners (26.06%) and 72 places (50.70%) from 142 runners, for level stakes profits of 28.92 and 27.69 respectively.

There are quite a few grey sections on the Instant Expert report as this is a race for three year olds, however Sidewinder comes out reasonably well with two sections of green and one of amber, when the report is on the 'Place' setting. A mile looks his optimum distance and if he can cope with the ground, he could be a big player in this.

Original Choice has two sections of green and two of amber, and encouragingly, he has looked fine racing in today's softer conditions.

The Pace report shows that leaders here over this distance have a good record, with 16.67% of them winning the race, for a level stakes profit of 30.21.

Original Choice has been very handy in his last few races and has the highest pace score in this one. He has a good draw in stall eight, and looks the most likely to be the early leader with Martin Harley dictating the pace.

A lot of this field like to be quite close to the pace of the race, therefore there is a chance this one be run very quickly through the first few furlongs, and given the good to soft going, it may require and good bit of stamina to win this.

The Trainer Statistics report is available to all users on a Wednesday, and it shows what a good record Tom Dascombe has here at Haydock. Over the past year he's had 14 winners (20.00%) and 26 places (37.14%) from 70 runners, for level stakes profits of 24.63 and 18.52 respectively. As mentioned above, he runs Sidewinder here today, who looks a little overpriced if he acts on the going.

Race of the Day – 13 Jun

Race of the Day - 16:00 Salisbury

This is a good quality fillies handicap, being run over ten furlongs on good going at Salisbury.

Dubara is the current favourite and is trained by Luca Cumani. Cumani has been among the winners recently and also has a good long term record here at Salisbury. Jamie Spencer takes the ride on Dubara and he too has a good record here. Over the last five years he's had seven winners (18.92%) and 16 places (43.24%) from 37 runners, for level stakes profits of 4.73 and 0.92 respectively.

Hidden Charms comes into a handicap race for the first time, having only had the one run so far, a comfortable win in a maiden race at Wolverhampton. David Simcock has a very impressive record with last time out winners, as he's had 37 winners (26.06%) and 72 places (50.70%) from 142 runners, for level stakes profits 28.92 and 37.69 respectively. He also has a very good record here at Salisbury.

The Shortlist report is available to all users on a Tuesday, and it shows how well suited Perfect Quest is by today's conditions. She has a score of 11 on this report, with four sections of green, so appears to have a lot in her favour here today. Her only race here was a seventh placed finish, however that was on soft going and she looks sure to appreciate the firmer going this time around.

The Instant Expert report confirms the good showing of Perfect Quest, and also shows she is four pounds higher than for her last victory.

Billesdon Bliss is next best on this report, with two sections of green and one of amber. She appears at home on this course with one win and another place from her three runs, so it would be no surprise to see her in the mix of things.

The Pace report shows that early leaders here over this distance have a very good record, with 17.42% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 30.54.

Billesdon Bliss is always very handy in her races and looks the most likely to be the early leader in this, as she has easily the highest pace score.

Race of the Day – 12 Jun

Race of the Day - 16:45 Brighton

This is a six furlong handicap on good going at Brighton for those rated 0-60.

Deeds Not Words is the short priced favourite, currently at around 13/8. He is chasing a hat trick here today after wins on the all weather courses at Kempton and Wolverhampton. He has been raised a further six pounds for his latest win, and will need to produce the same level of form now back on the turf. His jockey, David Probert, has a very good long term record here at Brighton. Over the last five years he's had 19 winners (18.27%) and 39 places (37.50%) from 104 runners, for level stakes profits 38.93 and 29.54 respectively.

New Rich is trained by Eve Johnson Houghton, who has been in a super run of form recently. She is 15/52 (28.85%) over the last 30 days, for a level stakes profit of 83.25.

The Instant Expert report when on the 'Place' setting, shows that Deeds Not Words is well suited by today's conditions, as he has one section of green and three of amber. As mentioned earlier, he was raised six pounds for his latest win, but it is very interesting to note that he is still six pounds lower than for his last victory on the turf. Therefore, if he continues his good run of form, he will be very difficult to get past.

From looking at the Pace report we can see that early leaders here over this distance have a very good record, with 19.79% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 15.88.

There don't appear to be any real front runners in this race, however Frank Cool has the highest pace score based on the last four runs of each horse. Deeds Not Words is another who is usually towards the front, and I wouldn't be surprised to see David Probert take the lead early on, and try to snatch a race in which a lot of the field will be held up.

The Trainer Statistics report shows what an excellent record Tony Carroll has here at Brighton. Over the past year he's had 11 winners (18.64%) and 28 places (47.46%) from 59 runners, for level stakes profits of 22.25 and 31.91. This is one of his most profitable courses, and he has last time out winner Frank Cool here today, who is currently around a 6/1 shot.

Race of the Day – 9 Jun

Race of the Day - 15:30 Wolverhampton

We go to the all weather course at Wolverhampton for Race of the Day, and a one mile and one furlong claiming stakes.

The ten year old Retrieve has been in the thick of the action recently, and he is turned out again today. He has been running very consistently and trainer Jamie Osbourne has a useful long term record here at Wolverhampton.

Strong Steps is the current favourite at around 15/8, and although his form doesn't look at all appealing, he has been running in a lot better class of race than we have here today.

When looking at the Instant Expert report we can see that Mr Red Clubs is extremely well suited by the conditions here today, with four sections of green and one of amber, from a very large sample of races. He is also just the three pounds higher than for his last win, so appears to have a very good chance of going well.

Retrieve is a full 15 pounds lower than for his last victory on the all weather, and he has two sections of green and two of amber, so is to be respected.

The Pace report shows us that early leaders here over this distance have the best record, with 15.21% of them going on to win the race. They are showing a large level stakes loss however, and the pace 'blob' is amber rather than green.

Sooqaan has the highest pace score based on the last four races of each runner, however he was held up last time out so it is difficult to judge how he is going to race today.

With a lot of the field happy to be held up, there is a chance this could be run at quite a slow pace, meaning there is a bunch sprint from a few furlongs out.

Horses For Courses is the report that is free to all users on a Friday, and it shows what an excellent record Mr Red Clubs has here at Wolverhampton. He has had nine winners (47.37%) and 14 places (73.68%) from 19 runners, for level stakes profits of 5.59 and 12.50 respectively. This is a tremendous effort and he looks sure to go well here again today.

Race of the Day – 8 Jun

Race of the Day - 14:30 Ripon

This is a six furlong handicap for three year olds at Ripon, and even though it has just the eight runners, it looks a tricky contest to pick apart.

Kaeso is the current short priced favourite at 11/8, on the back on winning his last two races. They were both over six furlongs, but on good going, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on with softer underfoot conditions, and a further six pounds higher handicap mark.

Daniel Tudhope rides Control Centre, who is another last time out winner, and Tudhope has been among the winners recently, as well as having very good course form. Over the past 30 days he's had 19 winners (21.35%) and 41 places (46.0%) from 89 runners, for level stakes profits of 98.68 and 112.15 respectively.

The Instant Expert report is available to all users for every race on a Thursday, and when put on the 'Place' setting it is Springforth who comes out really well, with a nice full line of green sections. This shows that he is very well suited by today's racing conditions, and he is just the two pounds higher than for his last win, therefore this Richard Fahey trained gelding could have a big part to play in this.

From looking at the Pace report we can see that early leaders here over this distance have a very good record, with 20.43% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 189.99.

Seaview and Springforth are clear on the pace scores, with Seaview looking the most likely early leader based on the last four races of each runner. I think Paul Hanaghan will be keen to keep Springforth right up there and if he does, he may be hard to peg back.

John Quinn and Jason Hart have been in nice form together recently, as over the past 30 days they've had five winners (15.63%) and 13 places (40.63%) from 32 runners, for level stakes profits of 11.85 and 12.73 respectively. They team up with one of the outsiders, Trick Of The Lyte, here today.

Race of the Day – 7 Jun

Race of the Day - 19:55 Kempton

This is a good looking handicap on the all weather surface at Kempton, being run over a mile and a half.

Ed Dunlop trains the current favourite Opposition, who is around a 9/4 shot. Ryan Moore takes the ride, and as well as being in very good current form, he has a decent long term record here at Kempton. Over the past five years, he's had 60 winners (24.79%) from 242 runners, for a level stakes profit of 22.08. Opposition has been running consistently well on turf, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on now trying the polytrack for the first time.

Captain Peacock has risen up the weights courtesy of a couple of wins in a row, however he won here at Kempton in April from just four pounds lower, therefore if he has improved again, he could get competitive in this.

With the Instant Expert report on the 'Place' setting, Fergall comes out really well. He has four sections of green and two of amber, showing his liking for today's racing conditions. If the drop down in class and return to favourable conditions brings out the best in this ten year old, then he could run a big race at a nice price.

Captain Peacock has two sections of green, one of which is for the course, where he has been placed two out of his three races here. This would appear to be about his optimum trip as well.

Horses that race prominently here over this distance have the best record, as can be seen from looking at the Pace report. However, it is only marginal and there isn't a lot to choose between the four running styles.

Zambeasy is a definite front runner, and if he gets away from the stalls ok, then it looks very likely that he will be the early leader.

A lot of the runners have been quite handy in their recent races, so this has the potential to be quite a strongly run contest.

The Trainer Statistics report is available to all users on a Wednesday, and it shows what excellent form Eve Johnson Houghton has been in over the past month. She's had 10 winners (21.74%) and 19 places (41.30%) from 46 runners, for level stakes profits of 61.50 and 71.81 respectively. This is a super run and she saddles Fleeting Visit is this one.

Race of the Day – 6 Jun

Race of the Day - 20:35 Southwell

Southwell hosts an evening jumps card, and this is a two mile handicap hurdle, which looks quite competitive.

Ashoka, trained by Dan Skelton, has had a couple of wins already this year, and has gone up the handicap quite a lot because of this. He is now 18 pounds higher than for the first of those wins, therefore will need to be right at the top of his game to be involved in this. His jockey, Harry Skelton, has a very good long term record here at Southwell. Over the past five years he's had 25 winners (22.12%) and 56 places (49.56%) from 113 runners, for level stakes profits of 7.64 and 9.36 respectively.

The Shortlist is available to all users on a Tuesday, and it shows that Trafalgar Rock is very well suited by today's conditions, when on the 'Place' setting, he has a score of 11. He is at home here at Southwell, and on the going, which is particularly important when it is towards the extremes.

The Instant Expert report highlights the good showing of Trafalgar Rock, and Gran Maestro also comes out reasonably well, with one section of green and four of amber. He is actually five pounds lower than for his last win, therefore if a return to favourable conditions brings out the best in him, he may be able to get involved at a nice price.

We can see that Ashoka has an excellent record in this class of race, so looks sure to go well again if coping with the extra weight.

When looking at the Pace report we can see that it is early leaders who have the best record here over this distance, going on to win 18.83% of their races, with prominent runners next best, at 14.74%. Both of these have produced a small level stakes loss, but this definitely looks the preferable way to race.

Our Three Sons is a confirmed front runner and always likes to be very handy in the early stages of his races. He has the highest pace score, with Matchaway the only other runner who looks to have the potential to want to challenge him for the early lead. If that is the case, then this could be run at a very quick pace, especially given the fast ground, and in taking each other on it could set the race up for one of the others waiting in behind.

Race of the Day – 5 Jun

Race of the Day - 19:25 Ayr

This is quite a useful looking seven furlong handicap at Ayr, with eight runners that are well matched.

The McGregornator is the short priced favourite, and his trainer Adrian Keatly, has an outstanding long term record here at Ayr. One the last five years he's had 14 winners (26.42%) and 26 places (49.06%) from 53 runners, for level stakes profits of 32.88 and 41.21 respectively. The Mcgregornator hasn't won since his second start as a two year old, however he has been consistent and was a good second in a similar race last time out over course and distance, and races from the same mark here today.

The Instant Expert report has very few sections of green, however Muscika has three and looks well suited by today's racing conditions.

Both Tatlisu and Aprovado have plenty of experience, and they each have four sections of amber when looking at this report, showing that if they can run near to their best, they are definitely in with a chance of at least making the frame.

From looking at the Pace report we can see that leaders here over this distance have a very good record, with 18.09% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 119.41.

Aprovado is usually away very quickly and he has easily the highest pace score in this field based on the last four races of each of them. It looks very likely that he will be taking them along through the first few furlongs.

David O'Meara and Daniel Tudhope have been in excellent form together recently, and produced plenty of winners. Over the past 30 days they've had 13 winners (21.67%) and 25 places (41.67%) from 60 runners, for level stakes profits of 84.59 and 92.80 respectively. They team up with Muscika here today, and I think he has a very good chance at a nice price of around 6/1.
