Over the last five seasons, Aidan Coleman has a 17% strike rate over both hurdles and fences. In his career, when he rides over the smaller obstacles at Perth, that doubles to 34%, coupled with a level stakes profit of +£18.54.
For an experienced jockey with a career that started in the 2006/07 season, it’s a remarkable record and shows that Coleman doesn’t take the long trip up to Perth for a fun day out. Coleman has three rides on the card on Sunday that form a 37/1 acca. There are also cards at Fontwell and York on Sunday for our horse racing tips to get stuck into.
Having raced in just a single handicap on the flat, Moneykenny started out over hurdles as an unexposed performer. He shaped well on his first start but a hood last time out saw him underperform so it’s not a surprise to see that headgear taken straight off.
He began this season finishing less than six lengths behind Siskany who is now rated 103 on the level. That is a smart line of form to bring to the table in what looks a typically ordinary juvenile hurdle for this time of year.
2.55 Perth – Six Perth Wins For Gold Chain Maiden Hurdle
The second of three rides all for Olly Murphy is Bright Eyed Eagle. He has been placed on all three of his starts this season, including when runner-up over course and distance in May. That level of form gives him a strong chance here on official ratings but he has produced far better on the flat so should have more in the tank in this discipline.
4.30 Perth – Six Perth Wins For Beldine Handicap Hurdle
This is an easier race than Island Nation ran in at this track last time. He tanked through a Class 5 here prior to that, absolutely running riot so it wasn’t a surprise that connections tried their hand in a better race but Class 2 was beyond him, with all seven of his rivals rated 115+ and a pair 133+. Here, he is the top rated on a mark of 109 and that huge drop in the quality of his opposition can see him winning again.
