Sweetspots: Talkofgold can have the midas touch at Hexham
This is usually a good time to follow Heather Main’s yard as over the last five seasons she boasts a 26 per cent strike-rate with a £76.80 level-stake profit in the two-week period either side of today’s date. She saddles Island Glen (5.45) and Island Cloud (6.45) at Newcastle where she strikes at 24 per cent.
Martin Todhunter is five from 19 with handicap debutants over fences (26 per cent, +£15.50). A course winner over hurdles last season, Talkofgold looks worthy of support in the 2.10 at Hexham.
Anthony Honeyball is two from five with bumper newcomers at Fontwell. His only runner there today is House Island (3.55), who can make a winning debut under Aidan Coleman, who has a 24 per cent strike-rate for the yard at the track.
