Sweetspots: Go into battle against the bookies with War Glory
Richard Hannon has an impressive 60 per-cent strike-rate at Thirsk and sends two runners there, the pick being War Glory in the Thirsk Summer Cup (3.25). This son of Canford Cliffs has been running well and apprentice Rossa Ryan claims a handy 3lb.
When Ben Curtis and the David Barron-trained Gunmetal team up it’s worth taking note as they have a 100 per-cent strike rate (2-2) together. They bid for the hat-trick in the Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood (3.40).
Harry Bentley has a 21 per cent strike-rate at Lingfield and makes the dash from Goodwood for one ride, Gripper (5.30). The trip looks ideal for this three year old, who can benefit from first-time cheekpieces.
