The first of two six furlong races with twenty eight runners, it will be a bit of a lottery in trying to find the winner but I will attempt, there are too many to go through so i'll concentrate on my top four ratings, as Shore Step is my fourth top rated and a possible front runner and it ran well last time out when second, third top is Barnet Fair who is usually a hold up type, second top is Slip Sliding Away who can either be held up or track the leaders but my top spot goes to CANYARI 25/1 who likes to sit just behind the early pace setters and then stay on strongly at the finish there are too many runners to be going in too hard so stakes should be kept low and a small each way bet may pay dividends.
3:00 Thirsk - Class four race with sixteen runners and if the going is good or firmer should be a nice race for the class, there are four possible known front runners and my top rated is one of them, I've got joint fourth top rated horses in Ballesteros and Whozthecat who is a possible front runner, third top is Ambitious Icarus who can be held up or track the leaders, second top rated Ace Master usually likes to track the leaders so could have place claims whilst my top rated is NATIVE FALLS 12/1 and if this one gets to the front I ought to be hard to catch and has run two respectable races recently to show its fit enough to do itself justice, its drawn in the middle of the field in stall eight so can go either side whichever is riding best on the day but at the price it has to be an each way bet.
3:45 Goodwood - The Stewards Cup the other twenty eight runner race and even harder to solve as its very close t the top with only three pounds separating the top six, I've got joint fourth top ratings with Ashpan Sam and Huntsman's Close also being the more confirmed front runners so it should be a fast run race if the going is now worse than good, I've got joint second tops as well with Dinkum Diamond and Rivellino who both can either be held up or track the leaders and top of the pile is GAMESOME 22/1 but only by one pound and it wouldn't really surprise me to see any of these win so any stakes have to be kept low so only a small each way bet looks the most sensible way to go, but it should be a nice race to watch and savour.
Canyari 25/1 Unp
