Thirsk Tip: Showmethedough
Earned a sectional adjusted speed rating of 84 on his last start as a juvenile and makes his handicap bow with a mark of 84. Will have improved past that over the winter.
Showmethedough is amongst the least exposed runners in the 3.40 Thirsk and that should work heavily in his favour. On his last start as a 2-year-old he won at Ripon and clocked an impressive sectional adjusted speed rating of 84.
That was in large part down to running the fastest closing sectional of the race by 0.55s, tracking the leaders and quickening. To show that turn of foot on soft ground was impressive and he won’t mind any juice in the ground.
This afternoon he drops down to 5f but he’s run well at the trip before and looks well handicapped off a mark of 84. Richard Fahey has started the turf season strongly with 7 winners (19% strike rate) in the last fortnight and can add to his tally.
