The first selection in todays Stats Accumulator with Sky Bet comes from Wincanton over the jumps in the Class 3 handicap hurdle over 1 mile 7 furlongs and we have gone for Darling Maltaix to place.
This five year old has been in good form of late finishing a good second on his last start after probably going off in front to quick, needs to keep learning but showed a lot of potential.
Paul Nicholls has been firing on all cylinders at the moment, particularly at his local track where he has a 33% strike rate for the past year. With this, when combining with Lorcan Williams, who claims a valuable 5lbs off an already well-handicapped runner (due to go up 5lbs for future handicaps), they are operating at a 50% strike rate at the course.
The second selection in todays Stats Accumulator with Sky Bet comes from Clonmel over the jumps in the Beginners Chase 2 mile and we have gone for Monatomic to place.
This five year old is learning with every run and looks to be a nice type for the Gigginstown team. He finished a strong second last time out and in this big field is the one to beat.
Davy Russell is in the saddle for this Gordon Elliott trained horse and when they work togwther they pose a strike rate of 22 percent together. With this, they have both been in great form over the past 14 days Elliott running at a record of 20 percent and Russell at a strike rate of 26 percent.
The third selection in todays Stats Accumulator with Sky Bet comes from Wincanton again over the jumps in the Class 5 handicap Chase over 3 mile 2 1/2 furlongs and we have gone for Bermeo to place.
Tongue and Cheekpieces seemed to have worked for this runner having recorded 3 wins and 2 places whilst using them and he also seems to enjoy some cut in the ground having won 4 times and placed 4 times in 18 runs on similar conditions to today.
Noel Fehily is in the saddle for this ride and he is in great form in last 14 days (8 wins from 31 rides; 26%)
The final selection in todays Stats Accumulator with Sky Bet comes from Chelmsford on the all weather in the Class 3 handicap over 1 mile and we have gone for Restive Spirit to place.
This William Haggas trained three year old is very lightly raced compared to this field and has a superb record over course and distance at this track winning 4-8 times at a 50 percent strike rate.
William Haggas is in superb form at the moment and is running at a strike rate of 56 percent for the past two weeks of racing. The jockey on board also is having a good time of things recently getting 100 winners for the season and a 22 percent record over the last 14 days.
