Sweetspots: Graffiti Master can leave his mark at Sandown
Ballycool goes in the 3.45 at Bangor, a race he won last year. He runs off an 8lb lower mark this time and could well have been aimed at this by trainer Lucinda Russell, who has an impressive 31 per cent strike-rate at the track.
John Gosden and James Doyle have a 40 per cent strike-rate when combining at Sandown. The expensive purchase Graffiti Master makes his debut in the 3.20 for the pair.
Martin Lane has a 31 per cent strike-rate at Thirsk. He goes to the track for just one ride, Related, who runs in the 4.05. The gelding disappointed on his hat-trick
bid last time out, running for the second time within 24 hours. Forgiven that run, and with Lane back on board, he can go close.
