Sweetspots: Greatrex trio worth a second look at Stratford
Warren Greatrex is the leading trainer at Stratford with 25 winners from 66 runners. He sends three runners to the course – Pennywell (3.10), The Missus (3.40) and Peculiar Places (4.10).
Alan King’s overall record with horses first time out in bumpers is 22-106, a 21 per cent strike-rate. When running them at Wincanton that record jumps to 100 per cent (2-2). He sends Newtown Boy to the course for the 5.30.
Henry Oliver is a trainer to follow when his horses make their handicap debut with ten winners from 35 runners, a 29 per cent strike-rate (£1 level-stake profit of £36.50). Love Lane fits that profile in the 3.00 at Market Rasen.
