Sweetspots: Classic contender Gavota can deliver for Charlton
Eve Johnson Houghton is a trainer in form and she has five runners. The pick of those is On To Victory in the 6.45 at Nottingham. The gelding progressed well last season and there looks to be more to come over today’s distance.
Roger Charlton runs Classic hope Gavota in the 2.35 at Newbury. She is the trainer’s only runner this weekend and he does particularly well at this time of year. Connections of the filly will be hoping she’ll be contesting better races later in the season.
Paul Hanagan and Richard Fahey have a good strike-rate when combining at Thirsk and they do so with Chief Justice in the 5.25. With some eyecatching efforts under his belt, the application of first-time cheekpieces can make the difference.
