Sweetspots: Right time of year to bring out Mann’s Zen Master
Danny Tudhope has a 23 per cent strike-rate at Hamilton in the last five years but that rises to 50 per cent when riding for Rebecca Bastiman at the course. They combine with Jacob’s Pillow (2.30).
Sir Michael Stoute has an impressive 27 per cent strike-rate at Lingfield and sends one horse to the Surrey venue, Allante (5.10). The daughter of Pivotal should have come on from her recent run at Newmarket.
This is a prime time of year for trainer Charlie Mann as he has had a 33 per cent strike-rate with his runners two weeks either side of today’s date for the past five seasons. He sends one horse to Ffos Las, Zen Master (8.30), and Harry Bannister, who himself has a 38 per cent strike-rate at the Welsh course, takes the ride.
