Stat of the Day, 5th January 2013

A great shout on paper, Vallani failed to fire in any way, shape or form yesterday, and eventually pulled up. Sometimes, that's the way it goes, and we here at SotD never shy away from that. Saturday's racing is tricky, as all Saturdays are, and we're off to the Welsh borders for the...

2.45 Chepstow

David Pipe does very well here - it's just up the road - and he's especially adept with his hurdlers. That group have, over the past five seasons, recorded fifteen winners from 57 runners (26%). They've also snaffled blind backers 36.75 units of gravy.

Tomorrow, Pipe runs the French import, Amigo, in a handicap hurdle. This garcon ran a blinder at Sandown on his UK debut and I was there that day to see it. It was a race full of promise, and trip and ground will hold no fears to him. He's dropping in class today as well, having competed in Class 2 company up the Esher hill.

It is possible this trip will stretch his stamina a touch, but he should be able to get a lovely tow into the race behind likely front-runner, Raduis Bleu and, if good enough, kick on down the interminable Chepstow home straight.

    Bugger, late clocking on today so missed SOTD, but a great winner Matt at a nice price….congratulations. Now off to have my only bet of the day on Across The Bay in the Welsh National, hoping that class will overcome the fact he has to carry a hefty weight!!

    Cheers, Chris

    Good pick Matt – many thanks.

    Jay : Colours mean nothing, they are there to please and sooth us. You’ll “like” SotD even more if we get more winners like today.
    Great Stuff – t/y.
