Trader tips: This 12/1 double looks just Champion on Tuesday

The number crunchers are all over Dicky Johnson's mounts.



Fairly low grade events at Fakenham on Tuesday and as such it will probably pay to follow UK Champion Jockey Richard Johnson, who has a couple of interesting rides.

Firstly in the opening Novices’ Hurdle at 12:40 he takes over in the saddle on Pink Sheets who has her first start over obstacles. She won a bumper for Mick Channon before current trainer Mick Quinn threw her into a pair of Listed races where she was ultimately outclassed, but showed enough to feature in a moderate affair such as this one. She can out-run her current odds of 9/2.

In the 2:40 Novices’ Handicap Chase Johnson also takes the ride on Speedy Cargo for the first time. The six-year-old hasn’t shaped too badly on both of his starts for his new yard and may just be building up to full fitness as he embarks on a career over fences.

He has point-to-point experience which should stand him in good stead (including a good third behind the smart Beakstown) and a mark of 105 should be well within his scope. At 6/4, we’re willing to pay to see if he has what it takes.
