Sweetspots: Nicholls can close title gap with victory for San Satiro
Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden have individual strike-rates of 34 and 41 per cent respectively at Wincanton. That rises to 64 per cent when they combine. They do so with recent walkover winner San Satiro in the 2.20.
Trevor Whelan is a jockey to follow having ridden seven winners from his last 17 rides. He goes to Stratford to partner Elysian Prince in the 4.10 and Deise Vu in the 4.40. The latter bids to double up after notching his first career success under rules eight days ago.
Graeme McPherson’s string are operating at a 13 per cent strike-rate. However, it’s worth noting that this rises to 50 per cent (2-4) when the Cotswolds-based trainer adds first-time blinkers. Derrick D’Anjou sports the aid in the 2.30 at Stratford.
