Good evening and welcome to Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse! It was wonderful to finally be able to open our gates to racegoers last Thursday and some great racing, coupled with the excellent weather, made for a very pleasant afternoon. Fingers crossed for more of the same this evening. Our feature race this evening is the Weatherbys Personalised Gifts Handicap over 6f at 7.30 and there are no fewer than six previous course and distance winners in the line-up with 16 wins here between them! Marks Choice, Flying Pursuit and Bossipop lead the way with four wins each and Citron Major has two. Gunmetal won the 2018 William Hill Great St Wilfrid and I’m A Dreamer won at our first Behind Closed Doors meeting last year. It will be fascinating to see who comes out on top this evening. Of course, there are still some restrictions in place around the racecourse and we ask that you respect those both for your own safety and the safety and comfort of others. We hope that you have a thoroughly enjoyable evening with us and we hope to see you again for our double header in a fortnight with racing on Wednesday evening 16th June and Ladies’ Day on Thursday 17th June. Best regards. JAMES HUTCHINSON Managing Director

TODAY’S TIPS RACE

1

HE’S A GENTLEMAN displayed plenty of promise on his debut at Ascot on soft ground and the £105,000 purchase gets the vote to shed his maiden tag at the second time of asking. Atomic Lady has been knocking on the door on her two outings and demands respect with a 5lb allowance now opposing the colts, while Hello Jumbo is a half-brother to the classy sprinter Major Jumbo and warrants interest on debut.

WIN: HE’S A GENTLEMAN

RACE

2

ARIEL despatched his rivals relatively cosily at Kempton on his previous outing and it would be somewhat of a surprise if a 4lb rise prevents him from recording successive victories should we see a similar level of form. Despite not completely sticking his neck out, the Exceed And Excel colt finished with purpose to stretch clear down the outside and he’s preferred to Salsoul, who could be able to capitalise on a workable mark after being dropped 4lb for a lacklustre reappearance run at Chester. The Sedberghian has been tough to keep out of the frame on all three of his starts and he can sneak minor money if returning from a break with a similar attitude.

WIN: ARIEL

RACE

3

DANGER: SALSOUL

TEES SPIRIT came agonizingly close to supplementing his C&D victory at Doncaster and, despite a further 4lb rise in the ratings, he looks the one to beat in this contest. There are a few potential dangers, however, including David O’Meara’s handicap debutant General Sago and the top-rated The Thin Blue Line, who was successful on the all-weather at Newcastle when last running in Class 5 company.

WIN: TEES SPIRIT

RACE

4 5

6 7

DANGER: JUSTIFIED

This can go the way of BABINDI, who was an unlucky loser on her return at Newmarket before going under by a length at the line. The step up in trip is an unknown quantity for the daughter of Frankel but trainer William Haggas obviously thinks she will stay, and if she does then she ought to come home in front. Barn Owl lost a shoe and can be forgiven his fifth over the mile at Lingfield and has also had a breathing operation since, and he could show plenty of improvement now, yet Harlem Soul could be the main danger to the selection with this better ground likely to suit after a below-par effort on heavy going at Newmarket.

WIN: BABINDI

RACE

DANGER: FLYING PURSUIT

In an open race the marginal preference is for STONIFIC, who put in a promising display when finishing sixth in a competitive contest at York on his return to action 11 days ago. Justified failed to fire at Lingfield last time but is a player based on his previous victory at Chelmsford. Contrebasse is arguably the pick of the remainder, while Stormin Norman completes the shortlist.

WIN: STONIFIC

RACE

DANGER: GENERAL SAGO

Tim Easterby looks to have a couple of excellent chances here with Flying Pursuit, who won a Class 4 handicap over C&D last month, and BOSSIPOP. David Allan has seemingly opted to ride the latter, who made virtually all over 5f at Pontefract last Friday, and he could prove tough to beat under a 4lb penalty. Treacherous also warrants respect after running a blinder at Ascot last time.

WIN: BOSSIPOP

RACE

DANGER: HELLO JUMBO

DANGER: HARLEM SOUL

The more rain the better for Thirsk winner Lucky Beggar who strolled home that day by three lengths but with drying conditions expected he may not get the ground he needs to be seen at his best. HARROGATE seems to handle pretty much any going and won here in May before a solid third at Catterick on heavy ground. He has won off far higher marks in the past and on much faster going and will Billy Garritty keeping the ride, he could make it win number five this evening. Sam’s Call is one to watch on his return from 20 months off for Michael Easterby, but does drop in class and has been gelded since last seen in action.

WIN: HARROGATE

DANGER: LUCKY BEGGAR

STAR RATING EXPLAINED Each horse has been given a star rating, these are defined below: HHHHH Selected to win the race. HHHHI Good chance of being placed. HHHII By no means out of the reckoning but at least one or two hold stronger claims HHIII Unlikely to win but not totally without hope. HIIII Can be given little or no chance.

OFFICIAL BHA RATING The BHA Handicappers allot ratings to horses once they have taken part in a sufficient number of races to enable the Handicappers to make a numerical assessment of each horse’s ability. The principal purpose of the ratings is to determine the weight to be carried by each runner in handicap races, with the Handicappers aiming to provide each participant with an equal chance based on its best recent form under its optimum conditions. A horse rated 100, for example, would be set to carry 1lb more than a horse rated 99 (ignoring any penalties or allowances). The ratings published in the racecard for handicap races are the ratings that were used to calculate the weight to be carried by each horse, whilst in non-handicaps races the rating shown is that of each runner at the time that the entries for the race were confirmed. Any subsequently published change to a rating, either up or down, is shown in brackets following the rating.


LAST TIME WE MET

THURSDAY 27TH MAY 2021 IT WAS FANTASTIC TO WELCOME BACK RACEGOERS FOR LAST WEEK’S MEETING AND THEY WERE TREATED TO SOME EXHILARATING ACTION ON THE TRACK, AS THE TRAINER AND JOCKEY COMBINATION OF TIM EASTERBY AND DAVID ALLAN TEAMED UP FOR A DOUBLE ON THE SEVEN-RACE CARD. Easterby and Allan actually brought up their double in the feature race of the afternoon, the Ripon Cathedral Handicap, as Fishable recorded his third success over course and distance. The gelding had won back-to-back races here last season and enjoyed the return to Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse as he showed a good attitude to get back to winning ways. David Allan had set out to make all onboard the four-year-old but Fishable raced keenly and looked vulnerable as Scottish Summit travelled into contention over a furlong out. However, Fishable had beaten Scottish Summit in his previous two victories here and he battled back to come out on top again by half a length. The first winner on the card for Easterby and Allan had come in the Titanium Racing Club Handicap, with Wildcitydiva also putting up a tough performance as she rallied for success having been headed. The filly had been tried over longer distances in her two previous runs of the season and she enjoyed the drop back in trip to get off the mark this time around. She was ridden to take the lead over two furlongs from home but dug deep when the favourite Wholelotafun got past her, finding plenty in reserve to win going away by a length and a quarter in the end. There was also a double on the afternoon for apprentice jockey Mark Crehan and he showed his skills in the saddle with a well-judged ride from the front onboard Thornaby Pearl in the Visit ripon-races.co.uk Handicap. Thornaby Pearl was improving on his third-place finish at Pontefract the previous month and Crehan made a quick start with the three-year-old track across from his draw in stall four. He was then not catching after kicking for home two furlongs out, going on to score by a length and a quarter.

Crehan brought up his second win of the day with Arthur’s Realm in the Follow @RiponRaces On Twitter Novice Stakes, this time having to employ opposite tactics after his mount was slowly away. However, Crehan did not panic and took his time with the three-year-old, timing his challenge to hit the front inside the final furlong before just holding off Broomy Law by a neck with the pair well clear of the rest of the field. Earlier on the card, Furzig was a stylish winner of the Sky Sports Racing 415 Handicap under a confident ride by Paul Hanagan. Trained by Richard Fahey, Furzig had been in good form on the all-weather over the winter and and built on his third-place finish at Thirsk earlier in the month to gain his second success on turf. The six-year-old was held up at the rear of the field by Hanagan but could be spotted travelling strongly and he quickened up nicely to go from last to first, keeping on well to win by three quarters of a length. The opening race of the day, the British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes, also saw an impressive victory as Jersey Rose won by three and a half lengths on her second racecourse start for David O’Meara. She stepped up on her debut at Thirsk over an extra furlong here, always up with the pace under David Nolan before powering away for a comfortable victory. There was a thrilling finish to the finale as Van Gerwen bounced back to form to win the Skelton Handicap by a neck for Paul Midgley. The eight-year-old’s last win had came over course and distance last summer and he got his head back in front again in determined fashion, getting the better of dual to the line with Refuge. The pair went head-to-head in the final furlong and it was Van Gerwen who found extra for Ben Robinson to narrowly get the verdict, with only another neck back to the favourite Quanah in third.

RACE DESCRIPTION

This is a one mile handicap race for three-year-olds which have been rated from 51 to 70. In a handicap the weight that each of the runners carries is determined by their official handicap raGng which is based on their level of form shown so far. The aim is to ensure compeGGve racing by asking the higher rated horses to carry more weight than a lower rated rival. As a guide, horses rated 40 tend to be at the lower end of the scale whilst the very best performers would be rated as high as 130.

RACE DESCRIPTION

THIRD RACE 6.55

This is a six furlongs handicap race for three-year-olds which have been rated from 56 to 75. To qualify for a handicap raGng horses must have run at least three Gmes in a Flat race in Britain, or have run in no more than two Flat races run in Britain and won at least one of them. This raGng then dictates the weight to be carried in a handicap. In simple terms a horse rated 75 in this parGcular race would be required to carry 5lb more than a rival rated 70.

RACE DESCRIPTION

This is a six furlongs handicap race for four-year-olds and upwards which have been rated from 76 to 95. Once a horse has qualified for a handicap raGng this is regularly reassessed. A below-par effort could result in a reduced raGng whilst a strong performance could see the raGng increased. Occasionally, horses are entered to race before their handicap raGng has been reviewed and so to avoid recent winners being un-penalised they are allotted a mandatory penalty which is based on the age of the horse in this race.

FOURTH RACE

PLAY SMARTER

In a competitive sprint, a narrow vote goes the way of COMMANCHE FALLS, who was probably unsuited by very testing ground last time and is worth another chance to show he’s still on a good mark as his Ayr reappearance win looks solid. Treacherous and Mark’s Choice could be the pair to give him most to think about.

FIFTH RACE 8.00

This is a two miles handicap race for four-year-olds and upwards which have been rated from 56 to 75. Like most handicaps on the Flat this race is also open to horses that are rated below that parGcular band. However, all handicaps sGpulate a minimum weight and no runner can carry less than that, irrespecGve of how low their raGng is. This is o•en described as ‘running from out of the handicap’ and is considered a disadvantage.

This contest is another novice stakes, this Gme run over a distance of one mile, two furlongs about 190 yards. There are a variety of reasons why the three-year-olds and upwards in this race are sGll light on experience. Stoutly-bred horses are unlikely to be seen at their best over the shorter distances of their juvenile season whilst a setback or injury can curtail even the most precociously bred horse’s two-year-old career.

PLAY SMARTER

THRILLA IN MANILLA hasn’t been with Paul Midgley long and the speed he displayed over 6f at Ayr a fortnight ago suggests he’s well worth another go over the minimum trip. He gets the vote at the main expense of stablemate Harrogate and in-form veteran Lucky Beggar.
