Top tipster Andrew Mount struck with 17-2 shot Regel Mirage at Beverley on Wednesday and has four selections on Thursday
TWO COP BOP – 1.35 Hamilton
Mark Johnston has a poor record in low-grade nurseries on turf, scoring just twice from 48 runners in Class 6 company (4.2% strike-rate) for a loss of £39.25 to a £1 level stake at SP. His Better By Far looks one to oppose on this 5f contest and the one to beat her could be TWO COP BOP. Kevin Ryan’s gelding took a step forward when a five-length third to Acklam Express over course and distance last time, form that was boosted when the winner followed up at Glorious Goodwood. His trainer has done really well with progeny of Dutch Art over the years, including figures of nine from 25 in nurseries (36% strike-rate) for a profit of £45.95 to a £1 level stake at SP.
SWEET PURSUIT – 3.50 Salisbury
SWEET PURSUIT found 7f too far when only fourth at Chepstow last time and can be supported in this 6f fillies’ handicap. Rod Millman’s six-year-old tends to run best at this time of year, recording form figures in sprint handicaps in August of 1311461 (4-7) for a profit of £12.30 to a £1 level stake at SP. She’s suited by some dig in the ground and confidence will increase if the forecast thunderstorms arrive.
VELVET VISTA – 5.30 Bath
VELVET VISTA looked really well prior to her Yarmouth run on July 28th but her stall 12 of 12 draw looked tricky, as the strong crosswind was hitting those drawn high first She got no cover from the wind but still managed to finish second at 28-1. The fourth, Light Lily, won at Wolverhampton on Tuesday to give the form a timely boost and she’s worth chancing now switched to sprinting for the first time.
WHO TOLD JO JO – 6.00 Bath
Ayr doesn’t suit every runner – the ridges can unbalance a horse, like at Ripon – and I’m happy to forgive WHO TOLD JO JO’s 5-1 sixth of eight in a 6f handicap there last time. More importantly, Joe Tuite’s six-year-old raced towards well away from the stands’ side rail and was probably on the slowest part of the track. Alioski, who also challenged on the far side that day, was a 17-2 winner on his next outing and I’m betting Who Told Jo Jo to bounce back here. I’ve saved on pace angle ZAC BROWN.
