Speed Ratings - Friday

    Speed expert Lawrence Taylor provides exclusive ratings and Speed Six analysis every day for At The Races. His best bets for Friday go at Wolverhampton and Dundalk - live on ATR.

ELJADDAAF A LIKELY IMPROVER AT WOLVERHAMPTON

ELJADDAAF (nap) catches the eye in this 13-runner sprint handicap, as he showed improved form when dropping back to this trip at Chelmsford latest, and promises to go even better around the turns at Wolverhampton (the fairly long straight is helpful to come from behind horses).

Top on the clock, and lightly raced enough in this sphere to still be going forward strongly, the selection looks the one they all have to beat this same class handicap.

A 7-2 shot in the betting forecast, he also promises to go off at a decent price.

LTO Speed: Sister Slew 82 Pick Your Battle 81 Tribal Path 81

SISTER SLEW (nb) had to settle for third behind Tribal Path over this track and trip a fortnight ago (form solid), but finished strongly enough on that occasion to suggest she can turn the tables this afternoon on a few pounds better terms. Has been successful three times in the past, so knows where the winning post is, while her pencilled in odds of 7-1 can be considered more than fair.

LTO Speed: Flashman 90 Abyaat 88 Chill 71

The last time FLASHMAN ran over hurdles he trotted up in a two mile contest at Plumpton, and also posted a career-best speed rating of 90. In decent form on the all-weather of late, the gelding is fancied to make a winning return over timber this afternoon, while his early tissue odds of 9-2 look generous in a race that lacks strength in depth.

LTO Speed: Exmoor Mist 86 Buy Back Bob 83 Trojan Star 63

EXMOOR MIST has been in cracking form of late, scoring over fences at Newbury and Leicester, and posting a list-topping speed rating of 86 on the most recent of those occasions. Granted, a couple of runners have posted bigger figures in the past, but nothing in this 11-runner handicap chase is going forward as strongly as the selection at present.

Debt To Society 77 (--) 69 (--) (68) 67 (--)

LTO Speed: Maybe I Wont 91 Leath Acra Mor 90 Calculated Risk 35

MAYBE I WONT hinted that his turn is near when finishing second to Marlee Massie at Newcastle in December, while once again proving himself to be fully effective over a galloping two and a half miles on testing ground. Taking on same class opposition this afternoon, all looks set for the gelding to go one place better, while his early tissue odds of 8-1 look like value to this particular pundit.

Bionic Indian 64 53 44 46 64 (28) (22)

LTO Speed: Little Indian 64 Wild Flower 64 Bionic Indian 53

LITTLE INDIAN has been finding it hard to finish with his head in front of late, but rates the best and most consistent clocker in this 12-runner seven furlong handicap, and is by a sire (Sleeping Indian) who gets his fair share of winners around the turns at Wolverhampton.
