Friday Stats Accumulator With Sky Bet


13:15 Cheltenham - Dostal Phil To Place

The first horse of the Stats Accumulator with Sky Bet comes from Cheltenham on the first day of their three day trials meeting and we have selected Dostal Phil to Place in the Class 3 Novice Handicap Hurdle.

This Phillip Hobbs trained five year old looks a promising sort after making a good return to action at Uttoxeter last month when finishing second and has a lot of potential off this mark.

When Phillip Hobbs and jockey in the saddle today Barry Geragthy team up at Cheltenham they have a 50% strike rate with there runners, also the trainer is in flying form at the moment.

13:25 Lingfield - Sun Hat To Place

The second selection of the bet comes from the all weather at Lingfield in the Class 4 handicap over 1 mile and we have gone with the Simon Crisford trained Sun Hat to place.

This three year old has only had three runs in her career and this season is unbeaten winning both her races and is today bidding for her hat trick. Both these victories have come on Tapeta and if adapting to this all weather surface she will be in the mix.

Trainer Simon Crisford has a 24% record and Robert Havlin who is on board today has a (18%) strike rate here. Both combining together and having a 33% strike-rate at Lingfield.

15:00 Cheltenham - Tiger Roll To Win

The next horse to come in the stats bet is from Cheltenham and we have gone with last year's Grand National winner Tiger Roll to win the Cross Country Handicap Chase over 3 miles 6 furlongs on his seasonal reappearance.

This eight year old trained by Gordon Elliott had a fantastic season last term when taking the Cross Country contest at the Cheltenham Festival and then stepping up to take the biggest steeple chase in the world. He is seeking his hat trick today after being unbeaten at the back end of last season.

Tiger Roll has a great record at this course winning four out of his seven runs here meaning he has a 57 percent strike rate. With this, Elliott has a 24 percent record when bringing his horses over from Ireland to England.

18:15 Wolverhampton - Majdool To Place

The final horse of the Stats Accumulator with Sky Bet comes from Wolverhampton in the Class 6 handicap over 7 furlongs and we have selected Majdool to finish in the top three.

This Noel Wilson trained five year old has been in modest form recently but really enjoys it at this track. He has raced twice over course and distance at this track and has won both of them in good style.

He is Potentially very well handicapped and is going to be raised 2lbs for future handicaps so has strong claims under a penalty today.
