Leading horse racing tipster Andrew Mount’s is a contributor to the Racing Post, Racing Post Weekender, Racing & Football Outlook, the GG.co.uk website and a regular pundit on William Hill radio. Andrew has several interesting stats and systems for Thursday’s racing and shares his thoughts below.
The action hots up on Thursday (February 10th) and Andrew has five selections over jumps at Doncaster, Ffos Las and Huntingdon. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites with the lowdown on his latest picks below:
FFOS LAS 1.17
BOLEY BAY (system – Rebecca Curtis, first-time tongue-tie)
BOLEY BAY ran with credit here at Ffos Las on his Rules debut back in November, finishing a 28-1 fourth of 12. He was beaten a long way at Ludlow next time but probably didn’t appreciate that sharp right-handed track and could sneak into the frame here in a first-time tongue-tie. Since the beginning of 2013, his trainer is 15 from 52 when using this headgear for a profit of £51.95 to a £1 level stake at SP.
FAE THE PORT (system – Lucy Wadham, February runners)
In the past 20 years, Lucy Wadham has a 51 from 304 record with her runners in February (prior to yesterday’s racing when she had two runners at Fakenham) and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £54.18 to a £1 level stake at SP. FAE THE PORT had some useful form on the all-weather for Karl Burke and could prove up to making a winning hurdles debut.
FFOS LAS 2.27
SOLDIER OF DESTINY (system – Jamie Snowden, young handicap chasers)
Jamie Snowden has a fine record with his young handicap chasers and had we only backed those aged six or younger, who’d had one or fewer previous goes in a handicap chase, we’d have won 20 of our 77 bets and made a profit of £39.66 to a £1 level stake at SP. SOLDIER OF DESTINY finished a respectable 11-length fifth to Red Rookie (now rated 138) in a novices’ chase at Hereford just after New Year and looks a likely improver now going handicapping after a wind operation. At the time of writing he was priced up as the 11-1 outsider of the seven runners.
TERRESITA (system – Lucy Wadham, February)
TERRESITA is a qualifier on the same angle as Fae The Port (see 1.35) and was desperately unlucky not to win at Ludlow last time, going down by a head in second after making a hash of the last flight. She’s won two of her other three starts and can continue her progression by landing this handicap hurdle under Brian Hughes.
MISTRAL NELL (system – Lucy Wadham, second run in a bumper)
At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, I’m siding with another Lucy Wadham runner in this bumper. MISTRAL NELL impressed at Fakenham when making a successful debut last month and her trainer has a solid record with bumper runners having their second career start. Since 2010, nine of the qualifiers have won for a profit of £51.00.
