Sweetspots: Barman ready to call time on bookmakers' hopes
John Flint and Daniel Muscutt are a combination to follow at Chepstow. They have an impressive 44 per cent strike-rate and have two runners today. Winklemann (7.15) and Air Of York (7.45) can run well at big prices.
King Of The Celts is a Beverley specialist, having five course-and-distance wins to his name. He goes again in the 4.25 and has a good chance in a competitive heat.
Dr Richard Newland strikes at 37 per cent (16-43) with horses running over hurdles on their first starts for the yard. Sprink Bok runs in the 6.00 at Stratford and looks sure to go close under Sam Twiston-Davies.
Champion trainer Nicky Henderson has been in flying form over the past fortnight with six winners from nine runners. He has two chances at Stratford tonight in Barman (7.00) and No Hiding Place (9.00) who could well make it eight from 11.
