13:45 Leicester – Head To The Stars (BEST ODDS 11/4 with Ladbrokes)
Head To The Stars looks a top quality hurdler. He won last time out over heavy ground and is a dual course and distance winner. He’s one of only two horses in the field to have won over this trip at Leicester. I think that the five pound rise by the handicapper looks fair and that the step down in trip by a furlong is sensible. At the time of writing both trainer and jockey have over 30% strike rates over the past two weeks, so this horse is primed for a good run.
