Sweetspots: Mulholland’s Mix looks a steal for Sedgefield spoils
Neil Mulholland has a 48 per cent strike-rate at Sedgefield and sends three to the course. Stealing Mix (5.30) has faced tough tasks in novice races on his first two chase starts and has a clear chance.
Kevin Stott and Kevin Ryan team up with a 40 per cent success rate at Chelmsford. The most interesting of their two runners is, Armandihan (1.50), who can go close if he adopts the front-running tactics of his maiden win.
Taper Tantrum (Chelmsford 2.20) is only 2-21 on the Flat, but today’s jockey Ryan Moore was in the plate both times. He has been running well on turf and has a lower all-weather mark to exploit.
