Sweetspots: Kirby can continue Red hot form with Imperial
Dan Skelton has a particularly good record when he runs his horses in a first-time tongue strap and he does so with Maire Banrigh at Huntingdon (2.00). This well-regarded King’s Theatre mare should now be able to put her best foot forward.
Adam Kirby is riding very well at present and has a 27 per cent strike-rate with his rides for the past two weeks. He has four rides at Lingfield today, the pick being Imperial Red (12.50). He represents trainer William Haggas, who does very well when running horses in first-time blinkers.
