Welcome aboard to this Tuesday blog where I’ve got three selections to share with you all from Thirsk, and kicking things off will be the 3:45 which is a Class 6 Handicap that’s contested over seven furlongs. I like the chances of Jackmeister Rudi here at 11/2 who represents Sam James and Katie Scott. He’s been plying his trade on the all-weather throughout the winter, and whilst it’s not been the most profitable time for him he posted a more encouraging effort last time out when finishing fourth of nine at Wolverhampton, and will contest this off the same mark. He’s also got form on ground with soft in the description and I think he’s got every chance of going well in a race that won’t take much winning.
The 4:15 is the next race I’m looking at which the second division of the Class 6 Handicap over seven furlongs. In this division, I like the chances of Darbucks at 3/1 who’s my NAP for Christopher Kellett and talented claimer Laura Pearson who takes off three pounds. He’s had two spins on the all-weather over the last couple of months, where he posted two respectable efforts finishing fifth and fourth respectively. Most notably though, he’ll contest this off a mark which is the same as his last winning one which came at Wetherby in June of last year. He’s also got form on soft ground and has to be considered a big player.
My third and final punt of the day comes in the 4:45 which is a Class 5 Handicap that’s contested over five furlongs. In this particular affair, I’m siding with Debydinks at 5/2 for the team of Keith Dalgleish and Billy Garritty. Despite being a thirteen-race maiden, he arrives here in solid form having finished second in two of his last three outings, the most recent coming at Newcastle last month. He’s been going close off this kind of mark for some time now, and this is a slight ease in grade compared to the races he’s contested on his most recent outings. If we as ever going to break his duck, this could well be the race he does it in.
