The feature race on Thursday afternoon in Britain is Salisbury’s Group 3 Shadwell Dick Poole Fillies’ Stakes at 3.10pm. Will will provide a Horse Racing tip, preview and prediction for this juvenile contest, together with the Class 2 “Lochsong” Fillies’ Handicap, set to be run thirty minutes later at 3.40pm.
At Haydock Park on the same afternoon we will supply a Horse Racing tip for the Betfair EBF Conditions Stakes at 2.50pm, which has attracted a decent field of Listed and Group-class performers.
Our Tip for the 2.50pm at Haydock:
Despite finishing last of four in a similar race at Thirsk on his most recent start, the Simon & Ed Crisford-trained Ostilio can open his account for the season, with conditions to suit.
The son of New Approach pulled far too hard at the North Yorkshire track on fast ground and is much better judged on his previous run, when going down by half a length to D’bai over course and distance in July.
The mount of Andrea Atzeni will enjoy the forecast good to soft going and if in the same kind of form as when winning the Group 2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein at Longchamp in 2018 should prove hard to beat.
John Gosden’s Kingman colt Al Rufaa has won his last three starts, all in handicaps. While this is a big step up in class for a horse who was rated only 79 when winning at Kempton in July, the improving three-year-old looks the main threat to the selection.
Our Tip for the 3.10pm at Salisbury:
The Ralph Beckett-trained Time Scale sets the standard here following her victories at Chepstow and Newmarket, prior to an excellent run back at headquarters when a close-up fourth in the Group 2 Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes.
The daughter of Charm Spirit is sure to go close, along with Happy Romance from the Richard Hannon stable, who has already earned connections over £170k courtesy of victories in valuable ‘sales’ races at Newbury and York.
For a value each-way alternative to the main two participants however, it could pay to side with the Tom Clover-trained Fairy Dust.
The easy winner of a Windsor maiden on her second start possibly found the drop back to the minimum trip against her when going down narrowly in a Newbury Listed race last time. Back to 6f and on better ground, the mount of Jack Mitchell can outrun her odds.
Our Tip for the 3.40pm at Salisbury:
Current ante-post favourite for the QTS Ayr Gold Cup later this month, the Andrew Balding-trained Chil Chil is far from certain to make the cut for the 6f cavalry charge.
Standing at number 36, and with a maximum field of 25, the in-form four-year-old would only guarantee her place in Scotland’s famous sprint courtesy of a penalty along the way.
A victory for Oisin Murphy’s mount on Thursday would do just that, and off a mark of 94, the improving sprinter should book her place at Ayr in just over two weeks time.
The Exceed And Excel filly is 3 from 6 on Turf and looked the type to land a big handicap before the end of the season when running out an easy winner at Ascot last time.
The one who could give Chil Chil most to do is bottom weight Bimble. Henry Candy’s charge was a ready winner at Goodwood on just her second start and may have been let in lightly on her handicap debut.
