There is unlikely to be a race as exciting as Saturday’s Long Walk anywhere on Sunday but there are still three cards to get stuck into. Fakenham and Southwell race in England and Thurles keeps the Irish fires burning.
There are some interesting stats that have been unearthed ahead of Sunday’s racing which when combined make up a 494/1 acca. You can back the acca in one click below with bet365.
1.45 Fak – Sky Sports Racing Handicap Chase
Nigel Twiston-Davies has sent three runners to this particular handicap chase in the last decade with two of those three retuning home winners. He was unfortunate not to have a clean sweep with his other runner a half length second who was in front until the dying strides
That has given the yard a level stakes profit of +£9.00 in this race alone. In 2020 they send Luckofthedraw to Fakenham for this race and while he has been out of form so far this season, he was placed from seven pounds higher last campaign so is well treated if returning to that.
2.15 South – Bombadier Handicap
Paul D’Arcy has had four winners from just nine runners at Southwell over the last five years in handicaps confined to three-year-olds only. The yard have a level stakes profit of +£59.25 from those runners, Light Lilly the representative on this occasion.
It’s interesting to note seven-pound claimer, Laura Pearson booked who has had six winners in her last fifteen rides. This is the first time that she has got a ride for the yard and given how much confidence she is riding with at present, any market move could be significant.
David Pipe doesn’t send many to Fakenham, in fact, he has sent just eleven runners to the track over the last five years, returning five winners and three seconds! During the course of the time he has held a training license, Pipe is 17/36 at the track which is a 47% strike rate that has yielded a level stakes profit of +£18.96.
Gabrielle Du Seuil is his sole runner on the card, making her handicap debut. This sharper track might help if connections try the same tactics as they did at Uttoxeter with her setting off in front. Get the fractions right at Fakenham round these tight turns and they can prove tough to pick up.
