Race of the Day - 12:50 Chepstow
As always for this time of year, there is a lovely looking card at Chepstow, and this is a good looking novices' handicap chase.
Sykes is ridden by champion jockey Richard Johnson, and he has been in excellent form over the past month. From 81 runners, he's had 20 winners (24.69%) and 35 places (43.21%) for level stakes profits of 43.21 and 57.05. His course form is also very good, with 12 winners from his last 37 runners for 25.88 points at level stakes.
Sykes has made The Shortlist (which is the report that is free to all users on a Tuesday) with a score of 11, with four sections of green and one of red. He is at home over the course and distance, and the going. These are very important in a race of this kind, and he looks to be of potential value at his current price of 11/2.
The Instant Expert tab confirms the good showing of Sykes, and it is interesting to note that he is only three pounds higher than his last victory.
Definite Outcome also looks reasonably good on this report with three sections of green, and he is also second highest on the Speed Ratings.
Leaders here over this distance have a quite brilliant record. They have a win record of 27.45% for a level stakes profit of 110.95.
Tempestatefloresco and Definite Outcome look very likely to be setting the pace and as they have easily the highest scores on the Pace tab. The pace of the race could prove crucial, as if they go off as a decent rate the jumping of these novices will be really tested.
