With another hectic day of British horse racing from behind closed doors, the action rolls onto Thursday and a string of noteworthy meetings from the likes of Sandown, Pontefract and Uttoxeter.
On that note, for those of you who are looking to put on a little midweek flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for throughout Thursday.
15:20 PM – Pontefract – Race 5
For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at the Class 1 Sky Bet Pomfret Stakes and undoubtedly the standout meeting across British horse racing on Thursday afternoon.
While DARK VISION might have been disappointed to have seen MONTATHAM secure a measure of revenge after holding on to win the Coral Challenge at Sandown on July 5th, the super talented four-year-old is rightfully seen as the standout pick in midweek. He has really started to find a similar level that saw him burst onto the scene with three consecutive wins back in 2018.
Already marking his return from the enforced break with victory at Ascot in the Class 2 Royal Hunt Cup earlier in the month, there is no doubt that DARK VISION should be too strong among a favourable field in midweek.
19:30 PM – Sandown – Race 7
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to the penultimate meeting at Sandown on Thursday evening and the Class 4 Imber Court Handicap.
Really laying down a marker once again at Chepstow on July 17th, SONGKRAN is enjoying a scintillating purple patch since returning from racing’s enforced break. Continuing to shine since swapping trainers from David Elsworth to George Boughey back in January, the four-year-old romped to the win in the Mr And Mrs Berbillion Handicap. Making a much-anticipated step up in class on Thursday, he has now claimed three wins on the bounce, including back-to-back victories at Bath and Yarmouth earlier in the month.
While HIGH COMMISSIONER (also 9/2 with Paddy Power) might also be seen as one of the standout picks in midweek, we’re backing a high-flying SONGKRAN to extend on his tally in a maiden appearance at Sandown.
