In-Play Hints: A Happy time for New Year?

Timeform look at two Leopardstown handicaps

Timeform focus on a pair of handicaps at Leopardstown on Sunday...

Happy New Year is the only confirmed pace-forcer and could get the run of things...

Race: 14:30 Leopardstown- 2 1/2 mile Handicap Hurdle 

Pace Forecast: Weakly contested.

Specific Pace Hint: Happy New Year is the only confirmed pace-forcer, and could get the run of things: Shariyan has been furthest from the pace in recent starts of the better-fancied horses.

Individual Price Hint: Happy New Year has traded at more than 2 times BSP twice when winning during its last 5 starts: Willies Girl traded at 10% or less of BSP and 25% or less of BSP on 2 of its last 5 starts.

Race: 16:10 Leopardstown- 2m 1f Handicap Chase

Pace Forecast: Strongly contested.

Specific Pace Hint:  There is a chance of a pace burnout early, and Hidden Present is one who could suffer on recent run style: A proliferation of possible pace-forcers could set things up for those coming from further back: Pineau De Re is one who may benefit.

Individual Price Hint: Quartetto traded at 10% or less of BSP and 25% or less of BSP on 2 of its last 5 starts: Hidden Present traded at 10% or less of BSP, 25% or less of BSP and 50% or less of BSP on 3 of its last 5 starts.
