Sweetspots: Saffron Prince can be crowned at Newton Abbot
Rebecca Curtis does well at Newton Abbot and has had four winners from nine runners at a 44 per cent strike-rate. The Pembrokeshire-based trainer can improve on that impressive record with Drovers Lane in the 3.20.
David Bridgwater and Tom Scudamore have individual strike-rates of 28 and 16 per cent at Newton Abbot. That rises to 41 per cent when they combine and the pair team up with ten-year-old Saffron Prince in the 2.50. He should have improved for his recent return.
Saeed Bin Suroor is operating on an overall 24 per cent strike-rate, which soars to 56 per cent – ten from 18 – when applying a hood for the first time. Fitzsimmons wears the aid in the 3.00 at Ripon.
