Sweetspots: Time To Blossom ready to bloom for Crisford
Archie Watson is 3-7 at Musselburgh and Brandon Castle (3.35) is his only runner at the track. He had excuses on his last three runs and looked incredibly progressive last season.
When Will Kennedy rides for Donald McCain at Haydock, they operate at a 32 per cent strike-rate. What Happens Now (3.15) looks the pick of Kennedy’s rides. The ground would have been too soft for him last time out but he will be spot on for this.
Simon Crisford has had a 43 per cent strike-rate in the two-week period either side of today’s date for the past five years. His only runner at Kempton is Time To Blossom (3.45). The return to 1m4f looks the right move for this lightly raced mare and it will be disappointing if she doesn’t prove to be better than this.
