Sweetspots: Wake up and smell the coffee over Barista’s claim
Charlie Longsdon is 3-5 at Cartmel. He has two runners there, course-and-distance winner Kilfinichen Bay in the 3.50 and Midnight Shot in the 4.25. The latter is running from a 7lb mark lower than he last won off.
Dolphin Vista makes his first start for Ralph Beckett in the 4.15 at Epsom. The trainer is 1-1 with horses having their first start since a wind operation and this former Cambridgeshire winner could make that 2-2 at a decent price.
Barista is a regular at Chepstow’s August bank holiday meeting, having run four times in a division of Chepstow’s 4.20, winning once and being placed once. He appears nicely handicapped this time and can go well again.
