For the first time we will be tipping from two meetings this Thursday, a tough looking open race card at Hove yielding two tips with the other pair coming from the graded bags card at Sittingbourne.
We begin with an early one on the Bags in the shape of Boomtown Ruwasi for the Tony Collett team. She is a half sister to 642 TR holder Boomtown Polly and multiple open race winner Leigh Buster so is well bred for the job. She did everything wrong on debut, missing the kick a mile before running info trouble but gave the distinct impression all she needs to do is turn handy this time out for a win. High Roller in Trap 2 will prove decent opposition, unbeaten as he is in three graded starts at the track but this is tougher again.
Betting Tip – Trap 5 Boomtown Ruwasi
The opener on Hove’s card is a puppy contest where we see the return of Millwards Teddy. On more than one occasion he has looked a future Category 1 winner, stopping the clock at 27.81 at Monmore in June while his litter brother Droopys Nidge has been the talking dog this summer in Ireland. Dean Child’s dog hasn’t looked quite his best in recent solo trials but from his favoured stripes pitch he should be too good for these.
Betting Tip – Millwards Teddy
Braemor Speed is a funny sort, he won’t walk himself to the traps so needs to be carried there by his parader but once in action is well above average. You don’t need to go back far on his card to find him two grades higher than this and he is being brought back slowly to the boil. He is a little above his ideal weight at present but ran a corker on Saturday night, lucky to stand up at the first bend he blew most of the field away for middle pace but was unable to catch the smart Reagrove Sue. This looks marginally easier and granted more luck in running can have these on the rack by the third bend.
Betting Tip – Trap 4 Braemor Speed
The first heat of the Coral Ladies Trophy sees our final selection of the night with the Paul Young trained Silverview Rosay. She probably doesn’t get her head in front as often as she should but this is an awful lot easier than taking on the likes of Evanta Evita as she recently has. The majority of these spend their time in higher graded races rather than opens with Tyrur Gabrielle in 5 looking the danger. She is a good bitch on the bunny but a recent solo trial was well below what she is capable of but this is again a step down in class from her recent Romford exploits.
Betting Tip – Trap 1 Silverview Rosay
