Top tipster Andrew Mount has two selections at nice prices on Thursday
SWEET TALKED (1.15 Southwell)
Those at the head of the current betting make little appeal in Southwell’s 5f Betway Novices’ Stakes (1.15). Holy Eleanor doesn’t have the best head carriage and has failed to justify market interest on several occasions over longer trips. The drop back to 5f is not sure to suit. The form of Barbelo’s 33-1 Wolverhampton form took a couple of knocks when the runner -up and fourth both disappointed yesterday and I’m taking this pair on with SWEET TALKED, well drawn down the middle in stall 2. She did well to finish a 28-1 fourth from off the pace at Chelmsford on her debut, especially as she received a bump on leaving the stalls. That was typically Chelmsofrd fare, with the winner making all and the running-up sitting in second place for the majority of the contest. Fibresand should hold no fears on breeding and Robert Cowell sent out two winners and a 20-1 second from his three runners yesterday.
INTERNATIONALTIGER (6.30 Newcastle)
Richard Fahey’s INTERNATIONALTIGER, too green to do himself justice when fifth of six at York on his debut in July, very much caught the eye at Leicester the following month when a 25-1 fifth of 18. Poorly drawn towards the stands’ side rail in stall 14, he kept on nicely from off the pace to go down by just under four lengths begins runners drawn 6, 5, 9 and 7. The winner made all that day and the patiently ridden third gave the form a boost when scoring at York next time. Internationaltiger could only finish ninth of 11 when starting as the 3-1 favourite at Thirsk next time but the front runners never came back that day and he wasn’t helped by racing close to the inside rail where the ground was deeper. He’s had wind surgery since and is worth a speculative interest on his all-weather and handicap debut in the Ladbrokes Home Of The Odds Boost Handicap (6.30).
