Sweetpots: there’s rhyme and reason in backing Dashing Poet
When James Bethell and Ted Durcan combine at Wolverhampton they operate at an impressive 35 per cent strike-rate. Durcan’s only ride at the track is on Spirit Of Rome in the 3.25.
Jeremy Gask has a fantastic record with horses reappearing within seven days of a win – a strike-rate of 42 per cent, compared to nine per cent for all next-time-out winners. Dashing Poet goes in the 1.50 at Wolverhampton.
Harry Fry sends only one to Ludlow, where he has had five winners from 21 runners. Secret Door looks to be on a good mark and should make a bold bid a first victory in the 5.15.
