Skelton record provides good cause for a bet
Dan Skelton has a 25 per cent strike-rate at Uttoxeter and that increases to 34 per cent when Harry Skelton is riding. They team up with Cause Toujours (2.55), who ran in the Champion Bumper last season.
Luca Cumani has a 42 per cent strike-rate at Brighton and a 26 per cent strike-rate with handicap debutants. He saddles Spinnaka (4.40), who finished second on her only previous course start.
Stuart Crawford has a 38 per cent strike-rate at Carlisle and that increases to an impressive 67 per cent with bumper debutants. He saddles newcomer Hecla (5.25).
John Gosden and Robert Havlin have a 50 per cent strike-rate when combining at Newcastle. They team up with Eldritch (5.45), who should come on for his Kempton run.
