3:35 Thirsk Racing Tips (20th August)

Free Horse Racing Tips
THIRSK 3.35 (7.9) 

LYDIATE LADY 87 LEXINGTON PLACE 86 BASHIBA 84 

With 8 runners I've only got 1 that has been known to lead and that's my 2nd top rated LEXINGTON PLACE 15/2 and if allowed to set its own pace it could be hard to catch, Bashiba is 3rd top rated so could make the frame, I'm hoping LYDIATE LADY 16/1 can stay on the stronger at the finish, the trainer has a 5-24 record at this course and the apprentice jockey is 2-3 for this stable so it all looks positive and as long as all 8 run then I would have an each way bet. 

Lexington Place 12/1 1st
Lydiate Lady 16/1 6th

LEICESTER 4.50 (8.0) 

ROYS DREAM 80 NINJAGO 79 RUX RUXX 78 

A 9 runner race but again just 1 known front-runner and that's Fang who on a 2016 time would be rated 1 spots ahead in top spot but its form since then has been way below that level, Rux Ruxx is a 3-year-old who could still have improvement to come, Ninjago is a hold up type who ought to be staying on at the finish but my top rated ROY'S DREAM 11/1 is my selection and the 5lb claiming apprentice could swing things in this one's favour, the price permits me to have a bit of insurance with an each-way wager. 

Roy's Dream 11/1 1st + SF £52.02 + TRI £104.32

WINDSOR 7.00 (7.5) 

SILENT ECHO 97 OPEN WIDE 96 BERNIES BOY 95 

Of the 15 runners just 3 have been known to lead but none are in my top 4, Udontdodou recorded a time in 2016 that would make it the top-rated but needs to bounce back to win this race, Bernies Boy did it best time over this c/d as did all of my top 3 and can be held up or track the leaders and stall 12 is ok, Open Wide is 2nd top and usually tracks the leaders but stall 5 isn't ideal but I think my top rated SILENT ECHO 6/1 can get a good tow into the race with early pace either side of it and the trainer/jockey stats are both good at 26% and 16%. 

Silent Echo 6/1 2nd + FC £75.60 + TC £412.38

WINDSOR 7.30 (7.5) 

JOEGOGO 85 BASHIBA 82 ROUNDABOUT MAGIC 80 

I've got 3 of the 8 runners marked down as possible pacesetters in stalls 6,7 and 8, the bottom horse Roundabout Magic is a hold up type but may not reach the leaders before the end of the race, Bashiba is doubly entered today, 3rd best in both races, so maybe a non-runner but it likes to track the leaders if racing here but top spot is the 3-year-old JOEGOGO 8/1 who is one of the possible pacesetters and if getting to the front hopefully will prove too hard to catch and its best time was recorded over this course and distance.

Joegogo 8/1 3rd
