6:05 Thirsk Winning Racing Tips (3rd Sept) BARKERS OF NORTHALLERTON HANDICAP (Div II) (CLASS 4) (4yo+ 0-80)
(FREEBIE) - The second division of this race. A 6f contest with nine runners for this 4yo+ (0-80) rated handicap on good going. There are no known front-runners in the field which makes it hard to get a picture of how it will pan out. More Beau a holdup type and third top rated, Inexes races prominently and second top but top spot goes to MON BRAV 8/1. Brian Ellison's nine-year-old gelding, a son of Sampower Star, hasn't been at his best on these last few starts but enjoys being held up off the pace to capture his promise of old. A reproduction of its Ayr time would be enough to win this race easily.
