Daniel Tudhope has been incredibly selective with his rides at Ripon so far this season. It’s rare for a northern-based jockey of his quality and popularity to have had just nine rides there at this stage of the campaign. These nine rides have yielded four winners at an impressive strike-rate of 44 per cent. You can’t question this strike-rate and it could be significant that he takes three rides on Monday. We’ve combined these rides into a 225-1 treble. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
The first of these rides is for regular boss, David O’Meara. Not For Profit (9-2, bet365) improved significantly from his debut effort to score at Hamilton over 5f two runs ago. Things didn’t quite go to plan in the big sales race at Newbury last time so the return to calmer waters will suit. He’s the only previous winner in the field and will have to concede weight all-round but could well bounce back here.
King Eagle (11-4, William Hill) is a lightly raced three-year-old making his handicap debut. His first two starts were pretty average but showed much more promise when a three-length fifth at Chelmsford last time. Should improve markedly now going handicapping and this opening mark of 76 looks to have some potential.
Head Chef (10-1, bet365) has it all to do as the gelding isn’t in the best of form. However, it could be significant that he’s down to a mark which is 1lb lower than his last winning one. That victory came over course and distance five starts ago which offers some hope of a return to form. Perhaps we’ll see much more from him here.
