Smart Stat: 23% - Harry Cobden's strike rate at Taunton
Harry Cobden operates at an impressive 20% strike rate but that climbs to 23% at Taunton. In the feature handicap hurdle he partners Pic d'Orhy, who has disappointed over fences this term but won the 2020 Betfair Hurdle on his last outing in this sphere. He is certainly not out of contention from just a 4 lb higher mark.
Smart Stat: £47.35 - Marco Botti's profit to a £1 level stake with horses running after a break
Marco Botti's healthy level-stake profit with horses returning from a break suggests that fitness will not be an issue for Habit Rouge on his first start since November. He struggled on that handicap debut from a stiff-looking opening mark in that nine-and-a-half-furlong event at Wolverhampton, but he had won over this course and distance on his previous start and it is still early days in his career.
Smart Stat: £36.26 - Simon & Ed Crisford's profit to a £1 level stake when having one runner at a Flat meeting
Simon and Ed Crisford show a profit when relying on only one runner at a meeting, and they send Zamaani on the long journey north to Newcastle from their Newmarket base. Zamaani tops Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings on the back of a close-up second to Mighty Gurkha at Kempton last month and he is proving admirably consistent. He should launch another bold bid.
