Horses for courses! Key stats and trends for Sunday’s racing

Yarmouth Racecourse

We have just the three meetings on Sunday this week, with Goodwood, Perth and Yarmouth hosting the small offering. Not to fear, however, as both Goodwood and Perth treat us to nine-race cards!

We’ll have horse racing tips for all of those meetings! We’ll be focusing on the course specialists in this article. From course and distance winners, to multiple course scorers, here are three horses with superb chances at their beloved venues on Sunday!

2.25 Goodwood – Atalanta’s Boy

David Menuisier’s five-year-old has visited the Sussex Downs on three occasions, recording a pair of course and distance successes. He gained the latter success in September 2019 and has been mainly progressive since.

Winning on return at Chelmsford, he was beaten a neck off two pounds lower at Windsor on his second start of the campaign. Having his third course and distance run on his latest outing, he fluffed the start after being prominent in the Stewards’ Cup market.

This is a much easier contest and he’s dropped two pounds from his Stewards’ Cup run. He clearly loves it here and this ground versatile sprinter has obvious claims.

3.15 Perth – Amalfi Doug

Racing at Perth on eight occasions since June 2019, Amalfi Doug‘s form figures at the venue reads 11221143. That’s an impeccable record and he currently sits only five pounds above his last winning rating.

He’s raced over a perhaps inadequate 2m 4f in two Perth starts in 2020, hitting the line strongly on his latest start off two pounds higher. A return to three miles will really suit and he’s still unexposed at this distance. His yard is amongst the winners and with Danny McMenamin claiming three pounds, there is plenty to like about his chances.

3.25 Yarmouth – Purgatory

A return to Yarmouth should be just what the doctor ordered for Pugatory. He’s visited the venue on four occasions and although well beaten on his first try, it’s been a different story since. Second to a runaway winner on his second attempt, he’s recorded a pair of course and distance victories thereafter.

The latter success came off four pounds lower, where he scored very easily on heavy ground. His 2020 form has been below his best, but there have been hints of promise and he’s dropped down to a workable rating. With plenty of rain forecast throughout Saturday, he should get his ground, and a turnaround on his recent form can be expected.
