CARUMBA (system – Martin Keighley chasers in first-time visor)

Martin Keighley is four from 20 when fitting one of his chasers with a first-time visor and backing them all would have returned a profit of £24.75 to the usual £1 stake. It’s interesting to see experienced pointer CARUMBA switched to his yard at the age of 12 and he’s worth chancing despite the long absence.



UNCLE ALASTAIR (system – Nicky Richards, second run after a wind operation)

Nicky Richard has a four from 16 record with his runners on their second start back after wind surgery, for a profit of £40.20 to a £1 level stake at SP. Four of the beaten horses were placed and UNCLE ALASTAIR, a close second at 6-1 at Carlisle last time, is taken to go one better.



SMOKING PIGEON (systems – Fergal O’Brien hurdlers on second run after a wind operation & sire Midnight Legend, hurdlers on second run after a wind operation)

Fergal O’Brien does well with his hurdlers on their second start following wind surgery, scoring with five of the 29 qualifiers for a profit of £14.83. SMOKING PIGEON is the latest qualifier and, more interestingly, his sire, Midnight Legend, has a solid record with his hurdle progeny on their second run after a wind op – ten of the 51 qualifiers won for a profit of £25.48.



ALLOWED (system – Ralph Beckett, fillies’ handicaps on the all-weather)

ALLOWED qualifies as a bet for me on three separate systems, including trainer Ralph Beckett’s runners in fillies’ handicaps on the all-weather. Since the beginning of 2010, he’s won with 24 of his 88 runners in these contests (27.3% strike-rate) for a profit of £36.58. Allowed was strong though the line when scoring over 1m3f at Southwell last time and should appreciate the extra furlong.
