Sweetspots: Isstoora set to pay for long Hamilton trip for Watson
Gay Kelleway has a strike-rate of 43 per cent when fitting first-time blinkers. Yeah Baby Yeah (4.35 York), who has been is good form recently, gets the aid on today. It is hoped the fitting of blinkers may help eke out improvement.
When Karl Burke and Clifford Lee team up at Hamilton, they have a 38 per cent strike-rate. They team up with Humble Gratitude (8.05), who returns to the scene of his sole victory last season. Last month’s return should have blown away the cobwebs after 225 days off.
Archie Watson, who has a 56 per cent strike-rate with long-distance travellers, sends Isstoora (7.00 Hamilton) on a 370-mile trip from his base in Lambourn. She also makes a quick reappearance having won at Nottingham a week ago, which also bodes well as Watson is 44 per cent with horses reappearing within seven days.
