Sweetspots: One well worth backing – why? Becauseshesaidso
Major Ridge has been underwhelming since winning the Catterick 1.55 last year but is just 1lb above his winning mark as a result. He was well beaten in his starts before taking this last year so don’t let his poor seasonal debut put you off.
Venetia Williams enjoys plenty of success at Exeter and Becauseshesaidso (4.25) will be a warm order to follow up last week’s easy Chepstow win. Williams is 6-27 with winners returning to the track within a week.
Paul Cole is 12-65 (+£19.33) with first-timers in handicaps, so Black Medusa (6.15 Kempton) merits a second look. The 3yo has finished behind some useful performers in novice races and looks worth chancing.
