11,491-1 Topspeed top rated each-way treble for Sunday 🔝

Footpad jumps the first before going on to win at Punchestown

As the old saying goes, there are many ways to skin a cat. There are many ways to find a winner as well. While taking in as much info as possible is the best way to do so, there are some excellent judges at the Racing Post whose role it is to produce figures.

A comparison of RPR to handicap rating is often a good guide to those making their first foray into that sphere while Topspeed figures are fascinating for those who have produced a good time for a certain contest.

It is the latter that we are using for Sunday. There are three selections in total, one at Kelso and two at Punchestown who are at least seven points clear on Topspeed figures and all are each-way prices. They combine to make a 11,491/1 each-way treble at time of writing, best priced with bet365. We will also have our usual horse racing tips for Sunday on the site.

2.40 Kelso – Kelso Betting Ring Bookmakers Handicap Hurdle

The wide outsider in a six runner race, Battle Of Wills is back over obstacles for the first time since March. He has not shown an awful lot since leaving the yard of Gordon Elliott but has become very well handicapped as a result.

His best Topspeed rating came in January 2021, in fact two of his top four have come this month and another in February so this looks his time of year. That came from a mark of 125, able to run from 108 now. If the return to hurdles sparks him back to life, he would look overpriced.

2.50 Punchestown – Sporting Life Beginners Chase

Lean Araig is a thirteen-year-old running in a Beginners Chase which generally would see a line straight through his chance. He ran poorly at Limerick just after Christmas on his first start of the season but his return to action last season was awful as well, stepping up massively second time.

Two of his three career wins have come at this track and four of his top five RPR’s have been here so Punchestown adds interest. His two best Topspeed figures came in December 2020 and  January 2021 so he still had plenty in his legs just last season. A Topspeed rating of 106 compared to 82 as best of the rest makes him the stand out candidate despite his age.

3.50 Punchestown – Total Event Rental Amateur National (Q.R) Handicap Chase

Just a single success so far from Montagne D’Argent, winning off four pounds lower at Gowran last March. He has always been a horse who has produced his best in the second half of the season so although mid-January might be a touch early to catch him, he is very much one to keep in mind in the coming weeks with his mark coming back down again.

He showed some fair form in points but this is the first time that he has tried this far under rules. That Gowran success was a stand out Topspeed run, with a repeat of that making him a solid each-way candidate in this field with his jockey one of the better amateurs about.
