Sweetspots: Lazarus won’t require a miracle for Kempton win
Amy Murphy has a 36 per cent strike-rate with her horses two weeks either side of January 10 for the past five seasons. She saddles Lazarus at Kempton (5.45), her only runner of the day.
Oisin Murphy is prominent in the hot jockeys’ list and goes to Lingfield for a nice book of rides. The pick of those is Power And Peace (1.45), who should have no problem with the drop back to 6f and has a good draw.
Brothers Dan and Harry Skelton are having an outstanding season and combine with four runners at Ludlow. The pick of those is The Last Bar (3.35), who was an eyecatcher at Fakenham last month.
