Sweetspots: Rockwood ready to strike again for McLintock
Karen McLintock is a trainer to support at Pontefract as she boasts a 50 per cent strike-rate (3-6). Rockwood won over course and distance on his reappearance and can enhance his trainer’s record there in the 2.30.
Next Challenge is interesting in the 5.45 at Windsor for in-form Saeed Bin Suroor. The trainer has a 42 per cent strike-rate (16-38) at the track, so expect the three-year-old to go well in the maiden.
It could pay to forgive Englishman’s most recent effort as the seven-year-old won the 6.15 at Windsor last season off today’s mark on his second start of the season. The gelding has scored three times in this 14-day period previously, so looks set to go well.
