Sweetspots: Bookies will be asking for Mercy if O’Brien scores
Fergal O’Brien is the leading trainer at Sandown with seven winners from 17 runners, a 41 per cent strike-rate. When teaming up with Paddy Brennan, that rises to 50 per cent and they combine with Mercy Mercy Me (4.00).
Kim Bailey is the leading course trainer at Ffos Las with ten winners from 31 runners, a 32 per cent strike-rate. When combining with David Bass their record increases to 50 per cent. They team up with Wandrin Star (2.00).
Tom Lacey has a 27 per cent strike-rate with his handicap debutants with six winners from 22 runners. Backing each of those runners to a £1 level-stake would have yielded a profit of £23. He saddles Sword Of Fate in the 2.55 at Sandown.
