Smart Stat: 36% - Silvestre De Sousa's strike rate on favourites since the start of the 2013 season

He's been holding his form reasonably well at this lowly level of late, and looks to have leading claims now dropped a further 2 lb by the handicapper. Watson has a strong record on market leaders, something which he can improve by taking the lucky last.
