Sweetspots: Nicholls pair make appeal in Fred Winter
The pick of the Racing Post's statistical pointers
Whisper has shown good form at Cheltenham with four wins from nine starts at the venue. The nine-year-old bids for another course success in the RSA Chase at 2.10 and can maintain his unbeaten partnership with Davy Russell (2-2).
Paul Nicholls' handicap debutants are worth noting as the trainer is operating at an 18 per cent strike-rate with such runners (£20.88 profit to £1 level-stakes). Either Dolos or Dreamcatching could enhance his trainer's impressive record in the 4.50.
Hargam is an interesting runner for Nicky Henderson in the 2.50 at Cheltenham. The gelding has lost his form since his last win in October but as a result has dropped to an appealing mark. The addition of first-time cheekpieces and a step up in trip (+4f) could yield the required improvement.
