3:55 Thirsk Racing Tips (8th May)

Winning Racing Tips
THIRSK 3.55
Poyle Vinny, versatile type, best time from 2016 would put it about co-3rd top rated, Rasheeq needs to improve on its best figure recorded at York, Discreet Hero holu type and could make the frame with a clear run, Zylan may need further to show its best, Bashiba good draw and races prominently could make the frame, Patrick another that may prefer further, Signore Piccolo a front running sort with good draw in stall 14, Muatadal doesn't want it to be too firm and the draw puts me off a little, Liquid needs to improve timewise to feature, Elysian Flyer one of the co-3rd top rated and usually stays on strongly if there's a fast pace, Tallinski another that could make the frame with a good 5lb claimer riding, Bogart always looks as though further suits it better, Computable may need this run for fitness, War Whisper goes into the group of those wanting further, Acclaim The Nation likes to track the pace but needs to improve to win this race, Grandad's World a front running sort who may need further and poorly drawn in stall 2.

SUMMARY: With 16 runners its a competitive race and there's quite a few who could make the frame if running to their best speed figures, there's only 2 known pace setters in the race and that could give them a definite edge but one is drawn poorly and it would need to improve time-wise, MUATADAL 14/1 is my top rated but doesn't want the going to be any better than good and as usual it may need this run for fitness after a break and the trainers poor 1-42 record at this track makes me think connections are not expecting much from it in this race but i will have a small bet as i always do on my top speed figure horse. my 2nd top rated is SIGNORE PICCOLO 11/1 who is the other front runner and drawn in stall 14 which should be fine, the trainers 17% win rate and the jockeys 15% win rate make it look like a likely winner and it had a run 11 days ago to blow away any cobwebs, so at the odds i will be having 2 each way bets but tilting in favour of the latter selection.
