Sweetspots: Cymbal can leave bookies red in the face at York
Finley Marsh has a 25 per cent strike-rate at Ascot and goes there for one ride, Apex King (5.40), who can build on a promising first run for Richard Hughes at Kempton last time out.
Georgia Cox and William Haggas have a 33 per cent strike-rate when combining at York, and team up with Red Cymbal (5.30). The son of Pivotal will benefit from the first time tongue-tie and a step up in trip.
Rebecca Curtis has a 40 per cent strike-rate with her horses two weeks either side of today’s date for the past five seasons. She sends one horse to Ffos Las, Joueur Bresilien (7.05), who should be up to winning a maiden hurdle.
