Speed Ratings - by Lawrence Taylor

    Speed expert Lawrence Taylor provides exclusive ratings and Speed Six analysis every day for At The Races. His best bets for Tuesday both go at Southwell and are live on ATR.

STILL WAITING SET TO GET OFF MARK AT SOUTHWELL

STILL WAITING (nap) makes strong appeal in this 14-runner nursery, as he posted a list-topping speed rating of 66 when placed over this trip at Kempton last month, and is lightly raced enough to still be open to further improvement.

Pedigree-wise things look good too, as the gelding's sire and dam both rate positive for all-weather influence.

A prominent racer, Southwell could be the key that sees him get off the mark at the fifth time of asking.

A 7-1 shot in the betting forecast, he even promises to go off at something like a value price.

LTO Speed: Remember Forever 71 Absolutely Bygones 45 The Chuckmeister 44

On a day when beggars can't be choosers, REMEMBER FOREVER makes it into the Speed Six list, despite being pencilled in as short as 11-10 on the early tissue. Having said that, the gelding is the best and most consistent clocker in this eight-runner handicap chase, acts on any ground, and is unlikely to be inconvenienced by today's step up  to three miles plus.

Sisania 57 57 44 -- -- -- --

LTO Speed: Rainbow Dreamer 89 Pension Madness 66 Sisania 57

Another rather short in the betting is RAINBOW DREAMER, probably because he has solid speed credentials, and is lightly raced enough in this sphere to still be going forward. A consistent sort who is down in class, it will take a brave player to bet against him this afternoon.

Forecast 10-11 favourite My Khaleesi is obviously no mug, having won a Listed bumper at Cheltenham last month, but this time I'm going to say 'no' to tipping up another short-priced runner. Why the insanity? Well, 7-2 shot STAR RIDER is no mug either, having posted a figure of 86 when scoring on the Flat at Newmarket in October. That equates to a figure of around 98 over jumps, and 116 if we add on weight allowance. In short, if the selection can jump then she must be thereabouts at the business end this afternoon.

Ten Rocks 72 47 53 67 68 66 (82)

LTO Speed: Alpha Tauri 85 Ticks The Boxes 80 Llewellyn 71

FUJIN (nb) looks the one to be on in this lowly 13-runner sprint, as he rates clear top on the clock with a figure of 97, and was a ready winner over this track and trip in December of last year. With so many ticks in the important boxes, I'm more than ready to forgive this gelding his recent moderate run at Newcastle, aren't you? Okay, how about I throw in forecast odds of 6-1?

LTO Speed: Return Flight 83 Behind The Wire 65 Bertie Lugg 56

RETURN FLIGHT hinted at better things to come over fences when finishing second to Highway Storm at Ffos Las a few weeks ago, a performance that also saw him generate a solid speed rating of 83. Down a notch in class this afternoon, and with conditions to suit, the gelding's chance is there for all to see, while his early tissue odds of 9-4 can be considered fair.
