Sweetspots: Buckle Street can help his stock rise at Stratford
Over the past five seasons at Kempton, William Haggas and James Doyle have individual strike-rates of 20 and 25 per cent respectively. That improves to 56 per cent when joining forces and they do so with Cristal Spirit in the 7.15 and Mubtasim in the 7.45.
At Stratford Harry Stock is the top course jockey with five winners from 13 runners, a 38 per cent strike-rate. He bids to increase that record with Buckle Street in the 3.20.
Mick Appleby’s record with horses making their first start for him having switched from another yard stands at 32 winners from 138 runners, a 23 per cent strike-rate. Lincoln Park fits the bill in the 2.35 at Pontefract and the colt will be ridden by Silvestre de Sousa, with whom the trainer has a 50 per cent strike-rate when teaming up at the track.
