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 at Clonmel and Brighton and are live on ATR.

NEW KID THE ONE THEY ALL HAVE TO BEAT

NEW KID IN TOWN (nap) wasn't for catching in a 2m 3f beginners chase at Kilbeggan earlier in the month, a performance that also saw him generate a list-dominant speed rating of 102.

Lightly raced over fences, and a hurdle winner over three miles at Cork in July of last year, there doesn't seem to be any chinks in this gelding's armour.

Pencilled in at 15-8 on the early tissue for today's contest, it's hard to argue that he should rate bigger.

LTO Speed: Barnaby Brook 70 Purple Party 68 Jackpot 62

PURPLE PARTY got off the mark in a one mile handicap at this track earlier in the month, while at the same time managing to generate a list-topping speed rating of 68. Unproven over today's longer trip of ten furlongs, and on the predicted fast turf, I can't see anything in the filly's pedigree that suggests she will be hindered by either. The selection is also lightly raced enough to be open to plenty more improvement.

Onehelluvatouch 48 24 (59) 44 -- 48 37

LTO Speed: Hermosa Vaquera 64 Megalala 54 Top Pocket 47

HERMOSA VAQUERA (nb) hinted at a return to winning ways when placed at Lingfield last month, a performance that also saw her generate a list-dominant speed rating of 64. Ran consistently well in the autumn of 2015, and could well be be gearing up for a similar spell this fall. Has the speed to cope with today's drop back in trip too.

Chelmsford 7-40 Handicap (Class 4) 8f

LTO Speed: Let's Twist 87 Broughtons Vision 85 Feed The Goater 82

Let's Twist rates top on the clock for this 15-runner handicap, courtesy of his victory in a seven furlong event at Kempton three weeks ago. However, this front-running son of Piccolo is drawn relatively high is stall ten today, and also has an extra furlong to travel. On balance, I'd rather be with BROUGHTONS VISION today, as he rates only two points inferior on the clock, stays every yard of one mile, and won't be inconvenienced by his draw in stall five. Pencilled in at 10-1 on the early tissue, players of a more cautious nature have the option of backing the selection each-way.

L'Inganno Felice 70 (--) 67 57 70 -- --

LTO Speed: Red Charmer 92 Janaab 92 Gun Case 88

RED CHARMER and Janaab both posted speed ratings of note when placed in a Class 5 one mile handicap at Doncaster three weeks ago, so no surprise if they are prominent at the business end again today. Granted, both runners have yet to prove they can handle the all weather, with the pedigree stats just favouring Ann Duffield's charge on this score.

Warwick 4-45 Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) 21f

Horse Best Lto 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th
Kid Kalanisi 92 92 30 -- 24 -- --
Deauville Dancer 87 87 49 72 68 -- 34

Vivas 83 34 83 73 -- (--) (--)

LTO Speed: Kid Kalanisi 92 Deauville Dancer 87 Quebec 87

KID KALANISI showed improved form when finishing second to Ritual Of Senses at Fontwell in June, and also managed to post a career-best speed rating of 92. Off the track since then, and still to prove himself a consistent runner, it makes plenty of sense to back the selection each-way on this occasion, especially as connections are trying him in a hood for the first time.
