Thursday’s Thoughts (27th May)

I will keep this short and sweet. 

1:55 Ripon – 

Atomic Lady is well regarded and should be fitter, wiser and appreciate this step up to 6f. 

2:50 Haydock – 

Kingmax is well bred, owned and trained. Should go well but not much of a price. There may be option for those who are looking for an each-way alternative. Sharpe Riposte, Mot And The Messer & Tacaric Bay may hold value for a place and hope the favourite disappoints. 

3:25 Haydock – 

Jadhlaan will take a lot of beating. A horse highly rated by Johnston and I would be very surprised if not an easy winner.   

5:30 Carlisle –

Not the easiest race to assess. I wouldn’t look beyond the top four in the market. Qwicken has good statistics, Wee Loch Lass is a consistent horse who should go well, Province ran much better last time out and the form of that race may be very good. Karl Burke has the Midas Touch when it comes to Carlisle, often popping up with a debut win, and Frisky could go well. 

6:05 Carlisle – 

Aleezdancer destroys the opposition last time out but carries a penalty here. I think he will need to be top class to beat Mattice who showed good pace and ability last time at York.
