Sweetspots: Fresh Canyon will be hard to beat in Hatton’s Grace
Lisa O’Neill has ridden eight winners from 29 rides for her boss Gordon Elliott. Backing each of those runners to a £1 level stake would have yielded a profit of £11.93. They team up with Extrapolate at Fairyhouse (3.40).
Nichols Canyon has a super record when running fresh. The multiple Grade 1 winner won off a 353-day break back in 2014 and won the Morgiana Hurdle in 2015 and 2016 on his return. He bids to defy a 220-day layoff in the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse (1.30).
Emma Lavelle has saddled four winners from ten runners at Leicester at a 40 per cent strike-rate. Her representatives today are High Noon (12.40) and Fox Appeal (1.45).
