Sweetspots: Beckett looks set to Pacify bookmakers excitement
Richard Fahey has a 36 per cent strike-rate with two-year-old debutants at Nottingham. Simmy’s Copshop runs in the 6.00 and bids to enhance his trainer’s fantastic record with juveniles this season.
Ralph Beckett and Fran Berry have a strike-rate of 30 per cent when combining at Newbury. Pacify runs in the Spring Cup at 3.40. The consistent sort has run well when coming back from a break before, and the trip and ground should suit.
Ben Robinson is 2-2 when riding Major Valentine. The gelding is evidently in fantastic form and should take the step back in trip in his stride in the 5.30 at Nottingham.
Alan King has a 33 per cent strike-rate when applying a visor for the first time. Gibralfaro, who should benefit from a slight step up in trip, gets the aid in the 4.30 at Ayr.
