Sweetspots: Firmament can be a star turn to take prize again
Charlie Appleby boasts a 33 per cent strike-rate with those sporting first-time cheekpieces. Arabian Gift wears the aid for the first time in the 8.10 at Wolverhampton.
Bit More has something to find on his form for his previous yard, but he has had a wind operation before this first start for Neil Mulholland, who strikes at 27 per cent with his runners on their first run back after such treatment. Bit More might prove each-way value in the 5.50 at Fontwell.
Firmament’s record suggests he is more effective going left-handed (2-10) than right-handed (0-9), with his best RPR 16lb higher going anti-clockwise. He rates a solid bet in the 3.00 York off a mark of 98, having finished third in the race last year off 109 and won it in 2016 off 96.
