Sweetspots: Always On The Run can escape rivals at Perth
Seamus Durack has a great record at Worcester (5-11) and is 3-13 with bumper debutants. Nicely Done is a half-sister to a dual bumper winner for this stable and looks interesting in the 3.20.
Always On The Run (3.40) is the sole ride for Adrian Heskin at Perth, where the jockey has a 21 per cent strike-rate. He’s 27 per cent at the course for Tom George and the step up to 3m can see this gelding get his head back in front.
With two wins and two runner-up spots from seven starts over course and distance, Gaelic Wizard is worth chancing in the 5.30 at Thirsk. The nine-year-old ran his best race of 2017 last time out and is now 8lb lower than for his win here in September last year.
