Smart Stat: 25% - Harry Skelton's strike rate at Southwell
Harry Skelton operates at an impressive overall strike rate around the 22% mark but that increases to 25% at Southwell where he has some interesting rides this afternoon, including Our Jet in the two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase. Our Jet looked a nice prospect when winning a maiden hurdle and a novice hurdle at Wetherby last season and, although he failed to fire on his handicap debut in the ultra-competitive EBF Final at Sandown, he remains capable of better starting out over fences.

King of Conquest hasn't won since landing a Sandown maiden on debut last year but he ran his best race yet when runner-up at Newmarket last month on his first start since being gelded, and he remains with potential.
