Sweetspots: Pedulia Alba looks likely to score on bumper debut
Philip Hobbs has a 16 per cent strike-rate with his bumper debutants. This figure improves to a 60 per cent strike-rate when he sends them to Uttoxeter (3-5). Pedulia Alba makes her debut in the 5.00.
Richard Fahey and Adam McNamara have a 27 per cent strike-rate when they combine at Hamilton. The jockey’s only ride for his trainer at the track is on previous course-and-distance winner Royal Connoisseur in the 4.40.
Noel Garbutt is unbeaten when riding Broughtons Fancy, with both of those wins coming over course and distance. Running in the 5.25 at Wolverhampton, the filly looks well handicapped under today’s conditions.
