EASINGWOLD trainer Ruth Carr, who is never far away with her runners at Thirsk, has given notice of a potential boom or backers with a seven horse raid on her local course on Saturday evening.
Things start with a bang for the trainer with three runners in the opening Subscribe To Racing UK On Youtube Handicap and she believes that all three go with live chances.
“Kibaar is very well handicapped” says the trainer, who has booked Jack Garritty to take the ride, “while both Kingstreet Lady and Fuel Injection have been running consistently and go there on merit”.
A little more problematical is Rozy Boys in the ABF The Soldiers Charity Selling Stakes, a race he looks well up to winning.
“On ability he has a great chance, but he doesn’t always run as well as he should!” said Ruth with typical honesty,
Of the rest of her team, she is particularly hopeful for Be Perfect, who was well beaten in the valuable JW 4×4 Northallerton Handicap at Thirsk last month, but has since turned in a much better effort when second on the all-weather at Wolverhampton.
“That was a very encouraging run and I hope to see him build on that in the Cliff Stud Rearing Winners Handicap” she added.
This is Thirsk’s second meeting of the week following the extra meeting on Tuesday and this Saturday there will be live music throughout the evening performed by The Pipes & Drums Band of 103 Regt RA (V) , who will be playing before racing and between races along with Jump the Q who will also be performing.
Gates open at 3.30pm ahead of the First Race at 5.45pm.
Entry to the Premier Enclosure costs £23 (£21 if booked online ahead of the day), while Paddock admission can be obtained for £15 (£14 online). There are also great reductions for group bookings while, as always, adult accompanied children under 18 get in free. For more information go to www.thirskracecourse.net.
