Sweetspots: Muscika could be one to follow now with O’Meara
Naggers (4.45 Thirsk), an eyecatcher on his return, has a good chance to maintain his head-to-head record against Dandyleekie and Pomme De Terre, who are both returning from long absences.
David O’Meara and Daniel Tudhope have a 23 per cent strike-rate when combining at Thirsk. They team up in the 2.45 with Muscika, who has switched trainer since his last run and is worth noting in the betting.
The in-form John Gosden has a 29 per cent strike-rate at Salisbury. He has just one runner today in the shape of Elas Ruby (3.30), who makes her handicap debut.
Sir Michael Stoute has a 29 per cent strike-rate at Salisbury with three-year-old debutants. He saddles the Teofilo gelding Nadaitak in the 4.00.
