Race 7 Thrilling Samson (6)

Likes the outside boxes which should help.  The key to this race looks to be the early sectionals – Samson has 3 of the top 4 opening sectionals in the last 90 days and if he can ping the lid, any trouble at the start plays into his paws.  His PB and his winning percentage are also competitive in this race so I’ve marked him shorter than the bookies have so potentially some value here.

Confidence 1/5

Rated price 3.50 currently 5.50

Race 9 Cumbria Lad (4)

Won well last week – in fact he clearly has the two best times here in the last 30 days and both were winning efforts.  The middle box shouldn’t be an issue as he looks to have the box speed to compete early with the speed on his outer and possibly box 1.  If he can get the clear run as predicted, it looks the best placed in this field.

Confidence 1/5
