Sweetspots: Hammond’s Tassie can benefit from tongue-tie
Jeremy Noseda is the top course trainer at Southwell with three wins from seven runners, a 43 per cent strike-rate. Angel’s Whisper, who runs in the 1.55, is the Newmarket handler’s only runner at the venue.
Micky Hammond has an overall strike-rate of nine per cent, however when applying a tongue-tie to a runner for the first time his record rises to 29 per cent, four from 14. Silver Tassie sports the aid in the 3.15 at Kelso.
Iain Jardine and Ross Chapman have individual strike-rates of 17 and 24 per cent at Kelso. When they combine that increases to 45 per cent. They do so with The Delray Munky in the 2.45.
