There’s four UK meetings to consider today as we take a quick reminder at Mal Boyle’s thoughts for…
General stats: Michael (JM) Murphy has been one of the finds of the year relating to jockeys and his 26% strike rate here at Kempton is backed up by an LSP reading of fourteen points.
Annual handicap chase over three miles scheduled for 2.00: During the last eleven years, nine of the ten winners were aged eight or more. Five favourites have prevailed during the last fifteen years, whilst the biggest priced winner was returned at just 8/1.
General stats: With as many as seven potential runners over the two-day meeting, David Nicholls in obviously intent on improving his staggering 168 points of level stake profits at Southwell during the last five years.
Class 3 Novice hurdle event scheduled for 2.40: Paul Nicholls has saddled two of the last three winners in which he was represented in the race during the last four years and the Ditcheat based maestro only had Suerte Al Salto engaged at the time of writing.
Bumper event scheduled for 4.10: Four and five-year-olds have won the last eight renewals with the ‘juniors’ leading 5-3 during the period. Only two favourites have obliged via eight renewals since the turn of the Millennium. That said, the last eight winners have been returned at odds of 15/2 or less.
