The second division of a poor class six race but marginally better than the first division and of the twelve runners there's three of them that have been known to lead before, Le Laitier and White Flag haven't recorded a time to register on my graphs but the third possible leader, DIATOMIC 16/1 is my top rated. Its only a three year old so could still have some improvement to come but also looking at its breeding it may really need more than six furlongs to show its best but in 2014 at Carlisle it tried to lead all the way over this distance but it finished in third place but if it gets to the front against this lowly lot it could more than quite feasibly hold on and its got a top class jockey in the saddle to help but stall four isn't ideal but if it gets across it could lead all the way but at the price it has to be given as an each way bet.
4:30 Thirsk - Eight runners in a class three race where the biggest problem is knowing where the early pace will come from as there's no confirmed front runner, I've got Rex Imperator and Ambitious Icarus are my joint third top rated, joint top spot goes to Vallarta from its best time at Windsor last year but hasn't been anywhere near reproducing that time since but the other top spot is GREEB 5/2 who did its best time last time out when second at Nottingham and it looks capable of repeating it, so has to be the selection.
6:15 Kempton - A poor apprentices race so automatically stakes are going to be kept low, of the nine runners there's only one known front runner in PEARL NOIR 8/1 who also happens to be my top rated and its drawn in stall three which is nearly ideal for a front running type and if it does get an uncontested lead it will be very hard to catch and the apprentice on board is doing well this season so it all points to a big run being expected.
9:15 Kempton - Twelve runners this time with two known front runners in Black Caesar who hasn't done much time wise and Satchville Flyer who is my joint second top rated, my top spot goes to CLASSIC PURSUIT 14/1 who had its first run for four months nearly a month ago and if that has made it fit enough to do itself justice I think the trainer has found it a good opportunity in this race and at the price once again has to be given as an each way bet.
