After an exciting Saturday of racing, mother nature has once again caused a casualty on Sunday. Naas’ Grade 1 card failed to survive an afternoon inspection, which means Southwell and Exeter host the Sunday action. That being said, Exeter will also need to survive an 8am inspection.
We’ll have horse racing tips for both meetings, including NAP and Accumulator tips! This article will be focusing on the in-form trainers, however, and those with great records at certain tracks. It also includes a trainer who enjoyed a remarkable seven winners on a super Saturday.
We’ve come up with an 364/1 treble, and you can find all the details below! Make sure to take advantage of Sunday’s racing with VirginBet’s opening offer.
1.40 Exeter – Force Ten
One of his local tracks, it’s no surprise to see Paul Nicholls having a great season at Exeter. He holds a 50% strike-rate from twelve runners, with a cosy profit margin of £9.31 to level stakes. He has a pair of runners on Sunday, with Force Ten sat at a tempting price.
Running a pair of fair races in bumpers, this £70,000 purchase has looked a non-stayer in a pair of novice hurdles thus far. Those runs came over 2m 4f and 2m 3f, so today’s drop in distance should help matters.
Given the connections, he’s surely capable of better with further racing. If this drop back in trip does work the oracle, he certainly looks overpriced for his master trainer.
2.10 Exeter – And The New
And The New
Enjoying three winners from his last five runners, it’s safe to say that Johnny Farrelly is having a great time of things. He has just a sole runner on Sunday, with that being And The New.
He’s returned from a long absence this winter with a pair of good efforts in strong races. Going down by just a length at Wincanton in this grade, three miles was simply too far at Cheltenham last time in a Class 2 event.
He’ll massively appreciated this drop back in distance, however, and he remains lightly-raced for his age. He should be just right now in terms of fitness and returned to this grade of action, he’ll be tough to beat off an attractive rating.
3.50 Southwell – Rayyan
Karl Burke has enjoyed huge amounts of success at Southwell in the last five years. He’s sent 209 runners to the venue, with 42 winners maintaining a brilliant 20% strike-rate. It also constitutes to a £99.70 level stakes profit and Rayyan is his sole runner on Sunday.
He’s yet to score in five career starts, but he’s run to a useful standard and his profile is mainly progressive. He went close on his second handicap start at Wolverhampton, beaten just a length off a pound lower.
His latest fourth over the same course and distance was a shade below that standard, but stepping up to six furlongs can help matters. In-form jockey Ben Curtis takes over and at this lowly level, it would be disappointing if he was unable to get involved.
