Top tipster Andrew Mount has three picks at Southwell, Lingfield and Taunton on Thursday
ATALANTA QUEEN – (*2.20 Southwell, 1pt Win - 9/2)
ATALANTA QUEEN has no chance over 1m4f here last time but had caught the eye of the extended 1m trip at Wolverhampton the time before, meeting trouble before keeping on into fourth. She won here three times over 7f-1m last year and her full record over course and distance reads 1312622 (2-7), with the latest defeat by a short head. Ben Curtis is a good booking.
SILENT MAN – (3.33 Lingfield, 2pts Win - 11/8)
SILENT MAN impressed in scoring off a lowly mark of 88 at Ffos Las last Wednesday on his debut for Tom Lacey and the 7lb penalty is unlikely to stop him from following up. Just before that race, I spoke to commentator and point-to-point expert Martin Harris at Warwick and he said that many point enthusiasts had backed the ten-year-old because his equivalent mark between the flags was 109. He was rated as high as 102 for previous trainer Tom Weston and anything over evens looks good value.
POTTERS VISION – (3.41 Taunton, 1pt Each-Way - 12/1)
POTTERS VISION has been beaten by 54, 31 and 19.5 lengths in three runs over hurdles but the middle one of those efforts was especially eyecatching, as she was given a patient ride at pace-favouring Stratford, looking to hold a place chance at various stages before coming home in a 28-1 fourth. She got closer to winner at Exeter last time, despite only finishing eighth of nine, and looks the type to improve now handicapping for the first time.
