VAN GERWEN (system – Paul Midgley/Kevin Stott, 5f handicaps, recent run)

Trainer Paul Midgley and jockey Kevin Stott are a potent force when combining in 5f handicaps and those that had raced within the past fortnight won 12 of their 42 starts for a profit of £42.83 to a £1 level stake at SP. VAN GERWEN was just touched off in this race last year, is well drawn in stall 1 and will improve for his comeback run at Pontefract ten days ago.



LET ME BE (system – Dr Richard Newland, stable switchers in handicap hurdles)

Dr Richard Newland does well at the first time of asking with new acquisitions, especially when they are running in handicap hurdles. He’s won with 27 of the 88 qualifiers (30.7% strike-rate) for a profit of £34.96. The ex-Keith Dalgleish-trained LET ME BE can make a winning start for his new yard in this 2m3f handicap hurdle. Dr Newland has only had two horses from the Dalgleish yard before that debuted for him in handicap hurdles and both won.



SAULIRE STAR (system – Tim Easterby, first-time blinkers, handicaps)

Tim Easterby has a good overall record when using first-time blinkers on his handicappers and, since the start of 2014, he’s five from 31 when using this headgear on a filly. Backing all the qualifiers would have returned a profit of £67.50 to the usual £1 stake. Ten of the beaten horses made the frame and an each-way approach could pay dividends where SAULIRE STAR is concerned.
