Thursday's Stats Accumulator Blog With Paddy Power


13:25 Market Rasen - Jersey Bean To Place

The first horse of the Stats Accumulator with Paddy Power comes over the jumps at Market Rasen in the Class 2 handicap hurdle over 2 miles 7 furlongs and we have gone for Jersey Bean To Place.

This Oliver Sherwood trained five year old is a hors eon the up and is in search of a hat trick today after revelling in the step up to three miles last time and scoring easily at Newbury.

Sherwood loves bringing his horses to this track as over the last 12 months he is working at a strike rate of 23 percent. With this, Jersey Bean has only raced six times over hurdles winning three of them at a 50 percent strike rate.

14:00 Market Rasen - Drovers Lane To Place

The second horse of the day is back at Market Rasen in the Class 3 novice handicap chase over 2 miles 5 furlongs and we have selected Drovers Lane trained by Rebecca Curtis to place.

This six year old was in great form winning three of his last six races but he fell when he looked like he was going to cruise to victory. If sorting his jumping out he won't be far away.

This horse ha travelled over a 500 mile round trip to race here today and when doing this trainer Rebecca Curtis is running at a 17 percent strike rate. Also jockey A P Heskin is in the saddle and when teaming up with Curtis this year they are posing a 33.33 percent strike rate.

14:25 Newcastle - Kirtling To Place

The penultimate horse in todays bet is Kirtling for trainer Andi Brown and we need him to finish in the top three places in the Class 6 handicap over 1 mile 4 furlongs at Newcastle on the all weather.

This experienced seven year old was a dual course and distance winner back in 2016 and has recently showed similar ability. He is off a reduced mark today and can feature strongly in this weak race.

Andi Brown only carries a small yard but has a great record when travelling long distances with his horses and today Kirtling has gone close to a 500 mile round trip to race today and when this happens Brown has a 40 percent strike rate with his horses.

17:30 Wolverhampton - Swansdown To Win

The final selection of the Stats Accumulator with Paddy Power comes from Wolverhampton in the Class 6 Handicap over 1 mile 1 furlong and we have gone wit the Luca Cumani trained Swansdown to win the race.

This is Luca Cumani's last ever runner as a trainer due to him retiring and this surely means he will want to go out with a bang. Swansdown has had three runs in her career and they have been over Class 3 and 4 races, stepping back to a Class 6 can see her get off the mark for this legendary trainer.

Oisin Murphy is in the saddle for this memorable run and has a 26.44 percent strike rate at Wolverhampton over the last 12 months and is in really smart form posing a strike rate of 20 percent for the last 14 days.
