Smart Stat: £23.08 - Charlie and Mark Johnston's profit to a £1 level stake with debutants
Charlie and Mark Johnston show a healthy level-stake profit with their debutants which suggests their newcomers are often fit enough and clued up enough to do themselves justice at the first attempt. The Johnstons send Artisand on the long journey south to Brighton to make his debut in the mile maiden. Artisand, a two-year-old colt by Mastercraftsman, is out of a useful three-time winner in Desert Haze who was placed at Listed level. Desert Haze's first foal, Caligine, has won in France.
Smart Stat: £76.90 - Noel Meade's profit to a £1 level stake with bumper debutants
Affordale Fury won his sole start in points and is of obvious interest on his debut under Rules, starting out for a yard with a fine record in this sphere. Affordale Fury's point win was achieved in March but fitness is unlikely to be an issue on this first start for seven months given Noel Meade's exceptional record with bumper debutants.
Smart Stat: 28% - Daniel Muscutt's strike rate at Southwell
Daniel Muscutt tends to operate at a strike rate around the 12% mark but that increases to a highly impressive 28% at Southwell where he has a good book of rides this evening. One of his better chances is aboard Lincoln Rockstar in the mile nursery. She has gone up 5 lb for winning on her nursery debut at Redcar but that rise looks fair and she heads Timeform's weight-adjusted ratings.
