OSCULA (system – Galileo Gold, very recent outing)

The unbeaten Heredia will be a tough nut to crack but OSCULA is a viable each-way alternative. Progeny of her sire Galileo Gold do well when returned to the track very quickly (within a fortnight), landing 11 of their 59 starts for a profit of £65.75. She won well at Carlisle just ten days ago and rarely runs a bad race. She’s also a qualifier on the George Boughey last time out winners system discussed yesterday.



QUEEN OF DEAUVILLE (system – badly drawn in Queen Mary last time)

Fillies who have a bad draw in the Queen Mary (defined as stall 12 or lower in a race that often features 20+ runners) often make good bets next time out. Since the 2017 renewal, 18 of the 56 qualifiers won next time out (32.1% strike-rate) for a profit of £25.17. Only three of those ran in a nursery next time and they produced two winners (11-2 and 3-1) and a 7-1 runner-up, who was unlucky to go down narrowly to a well-handicapped rival (who ran off 84 and was subsequently rated 102). QUEEN OF DEAUVILLE scored at Carlisle on her debut before her 66-1 16th of 21 to Dramatised at Royal Ascot and is bred to appreciate the step up to 6f and slower going.



NIGHT OF THUNDER (system – Night Of Thunder fillies/mares, slow turf)

Female progeny of the sire Night Of Thunder do well on ground described as good to soft or softer, landing 25 of their 114 starts (22%) for a profit of £98.69. FLOWER OF THUNDER, a course and distance winner in the spring, will appreciate the return to this venue after last week’s 12-1 Newmarket third.



FOUTH TIME LUCKY (system – Richard Fahey, first-time cheekpieces, turf, recent run)

Since the start of 2010, Richard Fahey is 30 from 164 with his first-time cheekpieced turf runners who had raced withing the past four weeks. Backing all the qualifiers would have returned a profit of £79.75 to a £1 level stake at SP. FOURTH TIME LUCKY has made the frame in six of his seven starts, finishing a 20-1 fifth of 17 in a York handicap in the other, and the headgear can help him to get off the mark.



HELVETIQUE (system – Ralph Beckett/Rob Hornby combination)

HELVETIQUE did this column a favour when scoring impressively in first-time blinkers at 5-1 at Windsor earlier this week and the three-year-old could be hard to beat under a 6lb penalty for that four-length romp. His running style is favoured at tonight’s venue and Rob Hornby is on board again. He has an 81 from 459 record (17.7% strike-rate) when riding for Beckett (expected winners = 65) for a profit of £65.75.



BUTO (system – Bellewstown hurdles, ran at same track last time, recent run)

Course experience is important at Bellewstown and hurdlers who were returning from a break of seven days or less, having run at the same venue last time, have a six from 27 record for a profit of £31.33. BUTO had a sighter on the Flat here 48 hours ago and, though a 20-race maiden, can reward each-way support. He’s placed at 18-1 and 13-2 on his last two runs over hurdles.
