No tip albeit there is a TTP stats selection which I have repeated below from the Members Post, I am sure they won’t mind 🙂 Williams does well here in handicaps over this distance and has Allez Vic here, 5/1. He would destroy this field on his best form, esp if he could ever repeat a couple of his chase places from much higher marks. Much like with Askamore Darsi, all hope rests on the head gear here I think- first time Cheekpieces. If they work he makes 5/1 look decent, if they don’t it is a shocking price!
We shall see how he gets on in what is a weak race…
Allez Vic (micro – distance) (the stat the horse qualifies against) UP (CP didn’t work!)
NOTE: Trainer in form, 8/36,12 places last 14 days. Horse now 0/12,3p over fences but his mark is dropping and there has been the odd very good chase place, in much better races than this. Some hope rests on the first time cheekpieces maybe. He has the ability to win this, if putting his best foot forward- another that may be all about the headgear.

STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
2.30 Plumpton – Straits Of Messina NR-8/1- could be an interesting EW bet here given the trainer is 3/12,5 places with handicappers returning after more than 365 days off. This one has had a monster lay-off which caught the eye and made me have a look at his stats with such types. He is also 2/6,5 places with handicap hurdlers at the track, 1/2,1p with this jockey. When last seen the horse somewhat bolted up and is only 1lb higher here, due the enforced absence. It could be he needs the run or three to get to peak fitness- but those are the stats and I found them of some interested for a horse suited to all conditions. If he returns in the form of that Uttoxeter run he makes 8s look big. If he is as fat as a pig, it is a bit skinny! The market may well guide. Trainer isn’t in the best of form but then most of those to have run have been massive prices and the odd one sent off under 4s has run well.
That will be all for today.
