Speed Ratings - Thursday

    Speed expert Lawrence Taylor provides exclusive ratings and Speed Six analysis every day for At The Races. His best bets for Thursday go on the level at Leicester and Musselburgh.

STORM CRY RATES A CLASS ABOVE AT LEICESTER

STORM CRY (nap) makes plenty of appeal in this 11-runner sprint handicap, having posted a top speed rating of 84 when placed in a Class 2 contest at York last week, and before that running out a wide-margin winner at Ripon.

Down a couple of notches in class today, the selection must have every chance of getting back to winning ways, especially with underfoot conditions to suit.

Pencilled in at 4-1 on the early tissue, I'll definitely be a player and not a watcher at those kind of odds.

LTO Speed: Fair To Middling 87 Archie Rice 69 The Snappy Poet 64

FAIR TO MIDDLING rates joint top on the clock in this eight-runner handicap hurdle, courtesy of his second to Lucombe Down at Uttoxeter in June. The form was franked when the winner ran four points faster in victory at Market Rasen the following month, and then went on to make it a hat-trick of straight wins at Stratford. Successful at Bangor three outings ago, the selection knows where the winning post is too.

Leicester 2-40 Handicap (Class 4) 7f

LTO Speed: Harwoods Volante 75 Red Paladin 68 Show Me Again 55

Nothing in this seven furlong handicap has been running as fast as HARWOODS VOLANTE of late, even if he has been finding it hard to finish with his head in front. A solid effort at Redcar latest puts ticks in the important boxes marked track type (galloping), trip and ground, and to be fair he hasn't had all that much racing of late. Certainly worth a punt at his early bird odds of 4-1 with bet365 (at the time of writing).

Musselburgh 2-30 Handicap (Class 6) 7f

LTO Speed: Our Charlie Brown 65 Kilbaha Lady 55 Tennessee Rose 36

OUR CHARLIE BROWN (nb) has failed to trouble the judge on his three career starts to date, but his seventh to Muirsheen Durkin at Beverley latest was good enough to see him rate top on the clock for today's one grade lower contest. The winner of that race followed up at the same venue a fortnight ago, which helps to firm up the form, and the time of the race was decent too. An 8-1 shot with a couple of firms at the time of writing, those odds look like value to this particular pundit.

LTO Speed: Now Or Never 117 Creggs Pipes 107 Lina De Vega 70

NOW OR NEVER wasn't disgraced in a Group 1 contest at Ascot in June, with her fourth to Qemah generating a respectable speed rating of 117. Down a couple of notches in class today, and fully effective on testing terrain, all looks set for this 3yo daughter of Bushranger to pick up the winning thread. Not that her best odds of 11-8 are anything to get excited about.

Wolverhampton 7-15 Handicap (Class 6) 6f

Only Ten Per Cent 71 71 (68) 62 69 69 56

LTO Speed: Jack The Laird 78 Honcho 71 Only Ten Per Cent 71

JACK THE LAIRD probably doesn't win as often as he should, but must be respected this evening following the list-topping speed rating of 78 he posted at Chelmsford ten days ago. A proven performer over this track and trip, the gelding has all of the major angles covered, while a first-time visor could have the same galvanising effect as first-time blinkers did back in May of this year.
