Sweetspots: Handytalk can score for Millman and Murphy at Bath
William Haggas has a 31 per cent strike-rate with his runners at Haydock and can continue his run of good form with Feline Groovy (3.30). The daughter of Kitten’s Joy made a pleasing debut at the Craven meeting and there should be lots more to come.
When David Simcock sends out just one runner from his Trillium Place base it’s worth taking note. He saddles Highbrow (3.45) at Goodwood in the Cocked Hat Stakes. The son of Intello was an eyecatching third in a hot contest at Newmarket last time out and will appreciate the step up in trip.
Oisin Murphy has an impressive 43 per cent strike-rate when riding for Rod Millman at Bath and they team up with Handytalk (5.05). The front-runner should come on plenty for his recent return and is an interesting runner having previously won at this course.
