Race of the Day – 15:00 Southwell
This is a two and a half miles handicap hurdle with twelve runners at the moment.
Mrs Burbridge is the current favourite and trainer Neil Mulholland has some very useful form here at Southwell, with 17 winners from 78 runners (21.79%) over the past five years for a level stakes profit of 35.90. The booking of champion jockey Richard Johnson catches the eye, and he also has a useful strike rate at the course.
Clara Peggotty makes it to The Shortlist (which is a free report for all users on a Tuesday) on the place setting. She has three sections of green and two amber, for a score of 11. At 8/1, she is definitely worth a look from an each way perspective.
Apart from Clara Peggotty obviously showing up well on the Instant Expert tab, not many of the other runners really stand out.
Chance Taken is the only one in the field to have a section of green for the going, and he is near the top of the Speed Ratings as well.
The bottom weight Tisfreetdream is a full 12 pounds lower than for his last victory, however it is unlikely the veteran will recapture that form at the age of 15.
Runners that race towards the front of affairs have easily the best record here over this distance. Leaders and prominent runners both have over a 13% win record.
Clara Peggotty and Chance Taken look likely to be right up there early on judged on their scores on the Pace tab. However there are a lot of runners that like to race close to the pace, so there is a good chance they will go off fairly quickly and make this a good test of stamina.
The Sire Snippets report shows that Pasternak, sire to Mrs Burbridge, has an excellent record with jumpers in the six to eight year old range. He has produced results of 12 winners from 71 runners (16.90%) for a level stakes profit of 95.20.
