Sweetspots: Barton looks a Gift for punters in favourite race
Charlie Mann strikes at 23 per cent with those making their handicap debut over hurdles (+£9.25 level-stake profit). Glorvina (3.50 Bangor) looks worthy of support with Richard Johnson booked.
Dan Skelton boasts a solid 20 per cent strike-rate with his string, and that rises to 23 per cent with those wearing a first-time tongue-tie. Winner of his sole Irish point-to-point, Beakstown wears the aid for his bumper debut in the 4.05 at Kempton.
Barton Gift could bounce back to form at Bangor where he is 3-5. He has landed the last two runnings of the 2.10 and has dropped to just 1lb above his last winning mark.
Archie Watson is 18-52 (35 per cent) when sending his runners at least 200 miles. Karjini makes a 283-mile trek from Lambourn to Newcastle and looks the one to beat in the 6.45.
