Sweetspots: McDonald can work his magic aboard Dominating
James Ewart deploys blinkers successfully and is three from eight with horses sporting the headgear for the first time. Gilmer gets the aid in the 2.40 at Windsor.
Richard Whitaker has used the claim of Lewis Edmunds to good effect at Pontefract where the pair combine for a 56 per cent strike-rate. Dawn Breaking bids to enhance that record in the 2.50.
PJ McDonald is two from two aboard Dominating whereas other jockeys are three from 16 on the gelding. The Group 1-winning jockey is back aboard in Pontefract’s 4.50.
Emma Lavelle continues to churn out a healthy profit with her handicap newcomers and chase debutant Dark Mahler looks fairly treated in the 5.00 at Plumpton.
