Sweetspots: Whitaker and Edmunds on the right road with Lane
Richard Whitaker and Lewis Edmunds have individual strike-rates of 14 and 29 per cent at Pontefract. That rises to 67 per cent when they
combine, which they do with Penny Pot Lane (6.10).
David O’Meara is 29-183 – a 16 per cent strike-rate – with his handicap debutants. Backing all such runners to a £1 level stake would have yielded a profit of £48.08. Isabella makes her first handicap appearance in the 4.35 at Pontefract.
Dan Skelton has a 19 per cent strike-rate with his runners over the past two seasons. That increases to 26 per cent (29-69) with the addition of a first-time tongue-tie. Premier Rose wears the aid in the 4.15 at Southwell.
