DELPHINUS (system – Sea The Stars, Newcastle all-weather)

Progeny of the sire Sea The Stars are 33 from 118 on Newcastle’s Tapeta surface for a profit of £45.85 to a £1 level stake at SP. Marco Botti’s DELPHINUS is a nine-race maiden but seven of those runs came on turf and the other pair on Polytrack. She finished a respectable third at Newbury last time and her trainer has a fine record when switching a horse from turf to Tapeta, scoring with ten of the 34 qualifiers here at Newcastle (+£48.58) and 52 of the 227 at Wolverhampton (+£70.60). Botti is 0-1 on the new Southwell Tapeta surface with those switching from turf.


TANGLED (system – stiff tracks)

TANGLED seems happiest on tracks with stiff uphill finishes such as Beverley, Carlisle and Pontefract and tends to come good in late spring/summer. Had we backed him in handicaps on stiff tracks, from May to August, we’d have won five of our ten bets and made a profit of £36.50. He caught the eye when fourth at Ripon last time and is 5lb below his last winning mark.


WILDE AND DANDY (system – Michael Bell handicappers, gelded since last run)

Michael Bell has a great record with newly-gelded handicappers, especially those aged two or three. Since the beginning of 2010, 25 of the 103 qualifiers have won for a profit of £81.38 to a £1 level stake at SP. Only four of those were making their handicap debut at Yarmouth and three of them won (6-1, 9-2 and 4-1). WILDE AND DANDY, forecast by the Racing Post as the 9-1 outside of five, can leave the form of his three runs in sprint maidens well behind.


EAGLE COURT (system – Free Eagle, 1m+, all-weather)

Progeny of the sire Free Eagle have a 41 from 208 record on the all-weather when racing over 1m or further and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £42.86 to a £1 stake. EAGLE COURT hasn’t had many opportunities on synthetics and looks set to appreciate the cut back in trip to 1m2f.
