Sweetspots: Another First likely for Noseda with Crowley up
Warren Greatrex has a record of 29-84 with his bumper debutants. At Newton Abbot that strike-rate is 2-3 (67 per cent) and he sends the French-bred Kebir De La Vis to the track for the 4.45.
Jennie Candlish and Tom Queally have strike-rates of 14 and nine per cent respectively over the last five years at Wolverhampton. However, when they team up at the track that rises to 38 per cent. They do so with Star Ascending in the 8.00.
Jeremy Noseda is riding high in the hot trainers’ list with two wins from three runners over the past fortnight and he saddles First Up in the 8.30 at Wolverhampton with Jim Crowley taking the ride. Trainer and jockey have individual strike-rates of 33 and 19 per cent at the track over the last five years, rising to 50 per cent when they join forces.
