Sweetspots: Ewart stable can continue purple patch at Catterick
Archie Watson has an impressive 56 per cent strike-rate with his runners at Catterick and sends one horse to the venue, Orchid Killer (2.00). The daughter of Gale Force Ten has been found a good opportunity on her debut.
Sam Twiston-Davies has a 20 per cent strike-rate from his rides in the last two weeks and goes to Newton Abbot for just one mount, Fleeting Visit (4.30). The son of Manduro has some good form on the Flat and looks to be getting the hang of things over hurdles.
This is a prime time of year for trainer James Ewart. He has a 45 per cent strike-rate two weeks either side of today's date for the past five seasons and saddles I Am Dandy at Catterick (5.10). First-time cheekpieces can help him shed his maiden tag.
