We have two runners today at Thirsk, both will be ridden by Liam Keniry. MOLLS MEMORY will run in the 3.05pm Handicap over 6f and TRIGGERED in the 4.15pm Handicap over 5f.
We also have two runners at Newbury, both ridden by Jamie Spencer. VERIFY runs at 4.25pm in the 3yo maiden over 1m and STATE OF AFFAIR heads to post at 5pm in the 3yo maiden over 1m3f.
See Ed's thoughts below.
Molls Memory is in great shape and ready to start off for the season. She looks very well and I couldn’t be happier with her work. She is a much stronger filly now and I think this is a sensible starting point and I am sure she will be very competitive.
Triggered has been training really well and looks fantastic. He is an exciting 3yo, he is very fast and we will find out tomorrow if he fast enough for 5f, as Thirsk is a very sharp track. I am sure he will be very competitive in what looks a tough race.
Verify makes his debut tomorrow at Newbury and I have been very pleased with him. It is going to be a tough starting point but he has been working nicely and I think will improve a lot with racing. Jamie will give him a lovely education and lets hope he shows some promise.
State Of Affair is in good order and he steps up in trip in this race. He won’t want the ground too slow and this looks like quite an open maiden so we will see how he gets on.
Fingers crossed for a succesful weekend ahead and a big thank you to our team travelling. Photo below is of Verify and his regular rider Ryan.
