Sweetspots: It would be unwise to look this Gift horse in the mouth
If overcoming the issues that have sidelined her for a year Mountain Bell can go well in the 2.15 at Newbury. She has won off a long absence before and ran well to finish second in this race last year. She is still lightly raced and open to improvement.
When Roger Varian and Andrea Atzeni combine at Doncaster they operate at a 28 per cent strike-rate. The trainer sends just one runner to the track, Atletico, in the 4.00. He didn’t get the clearest of runs last time out and can make amends.
Oregon Gift can go well in the 6.45 at Wolverhampton for Brian Ellison and Ben Robinson, who have a 40 per cent strike-rate when combining at the track. He looks on a winnable mark based on his third here three starts ago.
