Sweetspots: Wincanton-bound Whelan the one to watch on Cyclop
When Steve Gollings has runners at Chelmsford it’s worth taking note. He has a 33 per cent strike-rate at the Essex venue and saddles With Hindsight in the 9.00, his only runner of the day.
When Andrew Balding runs his horses at this time of year they are worth a second look. Hairdryer is his only runner of the day in the 7.30 at Chelmsford. He’s a consistent performer who has won over course and distance.
Jockey Trevor Whelan has a very good relationship with the David Dennis-trained Cyclop. The jockey boasts a 100 per cent record on the gelding, with two wins from two rides. They team up once more in the 2.10 at Wincanton and should take some stopping in the bid for the hat-trick.
