Race of the Day - 15:10 Sedgefield
This is a competitive looking handicap hurdle over two miles and one furlong at Sedgefield, where the going is good to soft.
Champion jockey Richard Johnson rides the top weight Ifandbutwhynot, and Johnson has a very strong record when riding at this course. Over the past five years he has been placed on almost 59% of his rides, which is excellent going.
Ifandbutwhynot looks fairly good on the Instant Expert tab, which three sections of green and one of amber. He is 11 now, so it remains to be seen whether or not he can recapture his old form, however he has conditions in his favour and is 11 pounds lower than for his last win.
Perseid has two section of green and three of amber, so is another that looks capable of producing a good run here today.
Leaders here over this distance have an excellent record, with 23.29% of them winning their race, for a level stakes profit of 62.54.
Theatre Act and Perseid both look likely to be right up at the head of the field early on, based on their last four runs. They have easily the highest 'pace' scores and this is their usual running style.
Perseid appears to come alive when racing at Sedgefield, as can be seen when looking at the Horses For Courses report (which is free to all users on a Friday). He has raced here five times previously, winning three of them and being at least placed in four, for level stakes profits of 16.83 and 20.15 respectively.
