Sweetspots: front-runner can prove hard to pass
Ed Walker has three wins, two seconds and a third from just ten runners at Southwell. The trainer sends the front-runner Bold Prediction to the track for the 4.20.
Tim Vaughan has an excellent 28 per cent strike-rate with first time cheekpieces with five winners from 18 runners. Presenting Berkley gets the aid for the first time in the 5.15 at Kempton.
Nicky Henderson has a 28 per cent strike-rate at Kempton and sends Silent Steps there in the 4.10. Winning a point-to-point over three miles on good ground, the mare gets those conditions today under her first start in a handicap.
With a 50 per cent strike-rate at Southwell, jockey Finley Marsh looks to be good value for his 7lb claim at the track. In the 5.25 he rides Eurato, who has form figures of 112231 over this trip of 1m6f.
