BOSTON JOE (system – Rebecca Curtis, first-time tongue-tie, chases)

Since the beginning of 2013, Rebecca Curtis chasers are eight from 20 when fitted with a first-time tongue-tie and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £27.36. On paper, BOSTON JOE has a stiff task in this novices’ contest – he was beaten by 42 lengths on heavy going over hurdles here in December when last seen – but the better ground could suit and he’s worth risking at a big price (around 16-1 at the time of writing).



FOMO (system – Fountain Of Youth, turf, very recent run)

Progeny of the sire Fountain Of Youth fare much better on turf than the all-weather, especially after they’ve had a recent outing (1-15 days ago). Backing the qualifiers blind would have found 21 winners from 132 bets (16% strike-rate) for a huge profit of £315.50 to a £1 level stake at SP. FOMO shaped well at Beverley on her debut a fortnight ago, finishing a 100-1 sixth of 13, and has the best of the draw in stall 1 today.



MODULAR MAGIC (system – Redcar draw and pace angle)

Since the start of 2018, had we backed all those drawn in stall 4 or lower in Redcar handicaps over 5f-1m, who were ranked 1 in the Proform pace ratings, we’d have won 23 of our 120 bets and made a profit of £10.14 to a £1 level stake at SP. MODULAR MAGIC only just lost out in a three-way photo at Thirsk on his comeback, doing best of those who forced the strong early gallop, and could be hard to catch
