The first of the Stats Accumulator comes from Ireland and we are going with last seasons chasing superstar Footpad to get his six year old campaign under way with a win at Naas in the Grade 3 Poplar Square Chase.
Footpad last season was just remarkable being unbeaten in all five of his chasing performances with his best performance coming at the Cheltenham festival in the Arkle Trophy.
Looking to stay unbeaten and this season be even better than he was, he has a perfect chance to do this with Ruby Walsh in the saddle for Willie Mullins with that partnership known for being one of the best forces in the world of racing and over the last year they have run at a strike rate of 33.33 percent.
Walsh himself over the lat 14 days is running at a strike rate of 22 percent and Mullins at 26 percent. This horse could be this years King George winner and is the one to beat in this race.
