Andrew has been in fine form this week and has four selections at Doncaster, Ascot and Naas o Sunday, March 27th. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites with the lowdown on his latest picks below:
ASCOT ADVENTURE (system – Mayson, first run since gelded, handicaps)
Newly gelded progeny of the sire Mayson are ten from 50 in handicap company and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £29.38 to a £1 level stake at SP. In races over 7f or shorter the strike-improves to ten from 38 (+£41.38) and ASCOT ADVENTURE qualifies here. Stall 17 is a concern but the break is October shouldn’t pose a problem, as both his wins have come when fresh – his racecourse debut and on his return from a two-month layoff.
BORDER EDGE (system – Charlie Appleby, gelded 3yo newcomers)
Since the beginning of 2017, Charlie Appleby is 17 from 53 with his gelded three-year-old newcomers for a profit of £24.14. On turf only, that improves to seven from 21 for a profit of £25.88. BORDER EDGE looks a likely type on paper and can land this 7f novice contest.
SAINT RIQUIER (system – Ian Williams handicappers in March)
The Ian Williams-trained SAINT RIQUIER has shown considerable promise over hurdles, despite failing to settle on more than one occasion He’s been gelded since finishing down the field in the Grade 1 Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow over Christmas and looks set to go well in this juvenile Handicap Hurdle, a race his yard won in 2017. Since the start of 2010, his trainer has a 67 from 362 record in handicaps in March (18.5%) for a profit of £76.39.
THAT’S JUST DANDY (system, – 7f Naas handicaps, high draw)
Those drawn 12 or higher are 13 from 93 in 7f handicaps at Naas since 2015 and backing them all would have returned a profit of £86.98. There are two qualifiers here – Spanish Tenor and THAT’S JUST DANDY, with the last-named preferred.
