Sweetspots: Monarchs Glen can rule over rivals at Sandown
Paul Nicholls has struck at 20 per cent (+£34.55) with handicap debutants over the past five seasons. He saddles Trevisani in the 3.25 at Newton Abbot with Bryony Frost taking off a handy 5lb.
John Gosden is 12-42 with first-time geldings (28 per cent). Monarchs Glen pulled hard when beaten in Derby trials on his last two outings but he should settle better following the operation and looks good back in a handicap at Sandown (3.35).
Baron Run (4.15) hasn’t been in the best of form this term but he’s back at his favourite venue – Hamilton. He is 5-11 over course and distance and can take advantage of a drop in grade off a career-low mark.
Stuart Williams and Oisin Murphy strike at 43 per cent when teaming up at Chelmsford. They combine on big-field specialist Suzi’s Connoisseur in the 7.50.
