Ripon Tips: Flying Pursuit
Course and distance record is 2115 and handles soft conditions. Stable in better form than when he finished a good fifth at York
With all the rain around the country it pays to keep the mudlarks on side and that brings Flying Pursuit to the fore in the 8.05 Ripon. Cut in the ground isn’t an issue as he’s won on heavy and soft going in the past.
He also has a course record that reads 2115; his two defeats coming when racing away from the pack in stall 1. This evening he is drawn in the middle with Cam Hardie given the option of going either side of the track.
He showed up well for a long way at York, earning a sectional adjusted speed rating of 88, at a time when the Easterby stable was 1/58. The yard’s form has improved since then and with conditions in his favour Flying Pursuit should run well.
