12.00 Fairyhouse – Bar One Racing Best Odds Guaranteed Irish EBF Mares’ Handicap Chase
A profitable team to follow in recent seasons at Fairyhouse has been Kevin Sexton riding for Peter Fahey. They have a 27% strike rate over the last five seasons for a level stakes profit of £39.25, including two winners this season from five runners. Lunch In Adare represents the team here, a winner at this track last season over hurdles who has taken well to chasing this year.
12.47 Carlisle – Bet at racingtv.com Beginners’ Chase
It’s a long way up to Carlisle for Tom Cannon, far better known for riding winners on the south coast at the likes of Fontwell and Plumpton. In fact, Cannon has only even ridden one horse at Carlisle in his life, going home with a winner. He heads to the track for just a single ride at the track on Sunday on Highway One O Two for Chris Gordon. Gordon has had five winner in his last seventeen runners and was responsible for Cannon’s only winner here, Highway One O One.
2.28 Leicester – Meetings That Matter On Racing TV Veterans’ Handicap Chase
Richard Johnson heads to Leicester for just a single ride on Sunday on Garde La Victoire. That in itself should make this runner of interest but when Johnson teams up with Phillip Hobbs at this track, they have a remarkable 57% strike rate together. Only beaten two lengths off this mark last time on his first run of the season, he shapes as if there is still plenty of ability left.
3.50 Ffos Las – Handicap Hurdle
Colin Tizzard has not sent many handicap hurdlers to Ffos Las in recent years. Just nine in fact in four and a bit seasons which has resulted in three winners and a level stakes profit of £17.50. Kalarika is his runner on Sunday that fits that bill. She’s just a pound above her most recent winning mark on her second start after a wind op, returning to a potentially more suitable trip.
