Time to go Wild for The Thunder (Plus Reviews, Previews And Tips)

Just a few trackers to catch up on before I look forward to Saturday's racing. Graceful Magic put in a decent effort considering she carried 9-7. Always prominent but couldn't quite go with the pace of the eventual winner Hot Touch. I had a small each way bet on Airbrush who was also up with the pace before weakening. I had a feeling she would struggle to last out, and I was right, pretty disappointing and I won't be backing her again I don't think. Hot Touch ran a nice race. Jack Mitchell rode the perfect race and held her up until producing her a furlong out to win by just over a length. Breath Of Joy the 85,000 Gns purchase for Amy Murphy was an eye-catcher on debut and am sure she will come on for her first run. Another one I will keep an eye out for is the Ed Walker-trained Clegane who was given a quiet introduction by Richard Kingscote and was supported from an opening show of 40/1 to 20/1 on the off. Another tracker on the day was Alabama Whitman who won at short odds.

Graceful Magic 14/1 4th
Airbrush 7/1 7th 

Timeform Early Declaration with preview. 

13:50 Newmarket 13 Jul 2019: Tiritomba is a 57,000 gns purchase for Richard Hannon. I still can’t work out Richard Hannon horses but Tiritomba ran a nice enough race on her debut at Windsor behind Knight Shield. An Opening show of 10/1 didn't last long as she was backed into 6/1 at the off. Slowly away and niggled at half-way before running on again in the closing stages. This extra furlong should suit in what looks a tough little fillies Maiden with all the top yards sending out potentially nice fillies including the Mark Johnston trained Frankel filly Frankel’s Storm. Read more about her here, also looking at past results Aidan O’Brien has raced a few nice fillies in this race including Zagitova, Sizzling and 2015 winner Ballydoyle, so I would expect a big improvement form Ennistymon (NR) after a quiet introduction first timeout. 

17:50 Salisbury 13 Jul 2019: Atlantic Crossing is a 55,000 gns purchase for the in-form Paul Cole yard. Will be a tough ask against some top yards but should improve after that nice introduction. 

14:15 Ascot 13 Jul 2019: 

Another Richard Hannon tracker. I swear if these Richard Hannon horses do nothing I will ban him from my list. Anyway, Manigordo is a USA colt who was originally sold at the Keeneland sales back in 2017. After an opening show of 9/2 he drifted to 11/2 at the off and showed his inexperience when slowly away before steadily staying on the final furlong. That looked a decent enough effort and with that experience under his belt should come on a fair bit. 

14:00 Chester 13 Jul 2019: 

Dr Simpson is definitely a nice horse but the lay off is a slight worry for me. A cheap purchase at £24,000 he showed plenty of speed to be beaten by the talented Lambeth Walk on debut. As long as the layoff isn't a problem he should be in the mix at the business end of the race. My other tracker Mia Diva who I had a nice win with the other week also runs but has a win penalty to deal with. 

The Saturday Trixie: 

Could this be the week that we finally three winners? 

I very much doubt it haha just one will do these days, but we try again. 

Aaron: Burnt Sugar - 3:30 Newmarket, He won this race last year by half a length when he was rated 99, since been as high as 105, but is now down to 102 due to 2 mid-division runs towards the end of last year, but those were on heavy and soft so the return to good to firm will be ideal, just seems like he’s been laid out for this race and at 12/1 for the first 5 I think he has every chance of running better than his odds suggest. (Each Way) 12/1.  

Sam: 4:00 Ascot - Beat The Bank - has very strong course form including winning this race last year off the slightly lower mark. 8 from 9 when racing in group 2 and below. Sets the standard and should take the beating. (Win) 3/1. 

Craig: 14.55 Newmarket - Wild Thunder- Richard Hannon has two serious 2-year-old prospects this year in the names of Man Of The Night and his half brother Wild Thunder. This Night Of Thunder Colt was purchased for 105,000 euros in October last year and surprisingly sent off a 10/1 shot for his debut at Goodwood in May, Wild Thunder was driven out to win by just under a length in what was a professional performance. Richard Hannon has given Wild Thunder a host of Group entries and hopefully, he can improve again against a very strong field. (Each Way) 12/1. 

Thanks for reading and good luck.
