14:25 York – Threading (BEST ODDS 5/1 with Bet Victor)
I can’t look beyond Threading for this Group 2 race. She was absolutely rampant when winning a Goodwood maiden earlier this month and did so by six lengths. I’m surprised that she’s available at such a big price, and she might even be worth backing each-way in such a big field. The ground that Threading won on was soft on debut, and it looks likely to be good to soft by the time the race goes off. There has been a bit of rain so far this week, and this will definitely have helped her chances. James Doyle has a great strike rate of 24% over the last fortnight. This horse’s trainer’s strike rate isn’t far off that either. There are Listed and Group 3 winners ahead of her in the betting. At the prices I’m definitely backing this filly. I think she has all the right attributes to be a superstar, and that it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her in the winner’s enclosure once more come Thursday afternoon.
