TWO jumps cards and two flat meetings. What more could you ask for on a Thursday?
We’ve got you covered with our best bets from each track as well as an each way poke to boot.
4.45 Kyllachy Dragon – Liked this horses chance last time out and he ran well enough, despite plenty of traffic issues. Big claims again here and fingers crossed for a smoother passage given he’s set to get his conditions.
2.05 Essenaitch – Looks a cracking each way shot given he finally gets the rain David Evans has been praying for. Off the same mark as last win, funnily enough on soft ground.
5.10 So Hi Class – Easiest task for a while despite the penalty. Draw perhaps a concern, but should be too good for rivals in this claimer.
8.45 Hattaab – A weak field for this staying handicap and Tom George’s horse is interesting on only his second all weather start. Stays all day and shown enough to suggest this mark shouldn’t be beyond him in time.
1.25 Kalahari Queen – Solid hurdles form – that included a Grade 2 second – and thrown straight over fences here. Small field should suit and can hopefully display her class.
3.30 Primogenture – Looks on a generous enough mark and usueful 5lb claimer in the saddle on top of that. Gets conditions and should run his usual race.
4.25 Jaunty Thor – It’s another Gordon Elliot invasion here and hopefully I’ve picked the right one from the armada. Not sure what price he’ll be but in flying form and still looks way ahead of the handicapper.
2.15 Flying Verse – Small fields make this hard work but this six-year-old looks the wrong price. Only 3lbs higher than when winning three runs ago.
