WORCESTER 1.15

GO AS YOU PLEASE (system – J P McManus-owned low-grade jumps handicappers)

Since the beginning of this century, owner J P McManus is 110 from 496 with his Class 5 jumps handicappers in Britain (22.2% strike-rate) for a profit of £149.37 to a £1 level stake at SP. GO AS YOU PLEASE, forecast at 10-1, isn’t entirely straightforward but ran well at Market Rasen last time and might be able to sneak into the frame again.

HUNTINGDON 3.55

NAZWA (system – Oliver Sherwood, second run after a wind op)

Since wind operations had to be declared in early 2018, trainer Oliver Sherwood has a five from 31 with his runners on their second start following the surgery for a profit of £15.50 to a £1 level stake at SP. Those who finished fourth or worse on their latest start were five from 22 (+£24.50). NAZWA was only beaten by a little over five lengths when fourth of seven at Warwick and is taken to build on that.

CHESTER 4.15

CALIFORNIA GEM (system – Amo Racing-owned newcomers)

Owners Amo Racing do well with their newcomers, scoring with 18 of the 80 qualifiers (22.5% strike-rate) for a profit of £23.50 to a £1 level stake at SP. Only eleven of those were trained by George Boughey and five won for a profit of £8.88. CALIFORNA GEM, well drawn in stall 3, can be backed to make a winning debut for her in-form handler.

HUNTINGDON 4.30

LE GRAND LION (system – young chase debutants carrying top weight in a handicap, Class 4 or lower)

Horses aged seven or younger have a good record when asked to make their chase debut under top weight in a low-grade handicap chase, landing 126 of their 715 starts (17.6% strike-rate) for a profit of £47.46 to a £1 level stake at SP. From May to December only the strike-rate improves to 19.5% (109 winners from 558 runners) for a profit of £123.46. Ben Pauling’s LE GRAND LION won here over hurdles on his penultimate start and will appreciate any rain that falls ahead of his chase debut.
