Andy Holding’s Thursday Racing Tips

FLASHCARD (best price 4-1) was back to his best at Ascot out time and with his assurance and retuning to the scene of his greatest two previous performances, Andrew Balding’s gelding could choose the increase in class in his stride. 2-2 and striking on both visits in the Wiltshire track as a two-year-old, the boy of Fast Company has rather lost his strategy in the meantime, but again with some simplicity underfoot and during a stiff galloping monitor each time, he showed everyone just what a great horse he is when on-song. How he travelled and hastened in the Berkshire venue pointed into a horse at the rudest of health and also yesterday’s rain never set to inconvenience him in any way, the three-year-old chestnut can follow in the footsteps of Passing Glance, Side Glance and Tullius, that were all winners of the prestigious race for his Kingsclere handler previously. Alhaazm has looked like two matters are fairly getting in his manner, so until he has the unkindest cut of all, he could be passed over in favour of THE CORPORAL (best price 3-1). Looking disappointing since departing Aidan O’Brien, maybe not for the first time, one of Chris Wall’s offenders improved dramatically for a jog in the seaside venue and if he can continue along precisely the identical route on his return visit, then he may be capable of replicating the dose from time. Niggled along and appearing one dressed out two, the son of Dansili eventually made a decision to engage top gear when it mattered most and in the long run , he ended up dropping very snugly. Time-wise, the race comes out nicely on the characters, and with all the runner-up, Rock The Cradle, going on to increase the form next time with a cozy win at Sandown, the three-year-old is capable of following suit under similar conditions to those that struck 29 days past. MERRICOURT (NAP) (best price 5-1) has to overcome a 134-day layoff, but supplying he is somewhere near peak fitness there is every opportunity he will go close in a race of this nature. Promising in three starts last year, Ger Lyon’s three-year-old blew any chance he might have had of breaking his duck with an extremely slow start in a hot handicap back in April, however despite providing some good forms a healthy head start, he left the sort of inroads towards the back part of the contest to suggest he’d have been a gigantic participant awarded a level playing field. Clearly better than the bare result indicatesthe son of Mizzen Mast has ground conditions along with a decent draw in his own favour on his own return into the Dublin venue and he rates a reasonable each-way bet in the morning rates. Canadian Steel arrives in brilliant shape after the following easy triumph at Downpatrick on Sunday, but while his claims are blatantly evident, WALKING ON GLASS (greatest cost 7-1) could turn out to be the fly in the ointment towards the foot of their weights. Just showing modest capability over hurdles in three starts, the four-year-old gray was a totally different proposal of overdue about the Flat and his most recent attempt at Galway signifies the sort of improvement he has made in such a brief space of time. Fourth in a hot disability over 1m4f in Ballybrit two weeks back, that campaign was likely pound-for-pound his greatest ever exhibit based on pure characters, but should you take into account his victory over the rapidly-improving Linger (now rated 120 over hurdles) in Navan earlier in the season, it all adds up to a horse in addition to his game at present. Clearly, it’s not in tablets of stone that the son of Big Bad Bob will translate that amount of skill back to the chilly game, but when he really does, he definitely will be a dangerous floater away a marker of just 93 on his handicap debut.
