Sweetspots: Okotoks to improve O’Brien’s outstanding course record
When Fergal O’Brien has runners at Sandown it’s worth taking note –
he has a 42 per cent strike-rate at the Surrey venue. He saddles Okotoks in the 3.00, his only runner at the track.
Josephine Gordon has struck up a profitable relationship with the Hugo Palmer-trained Humbert, winning twice from two rides on this improving gelding. The pair team up again in the 7.45 at Kempton.
Harry Skelton has a particularly good record when riding at Wetherby, boasting a 33 per cent strike-rate at the course. That rises to 36 per cent when he rides for his brother Dan. The pair combine in four races at the track, with Captain Chaos looking their main hope in the 2.40.
