Horse Racing Tips: Timeform’s 3 best bets for Leicester on Thursday

The cream of the crop for Leicester on Thursday.



19:55: Wise Glory (NAP)

Wise Glory showed promise on his sole start as a juvenile, but was much improved after a gelding operation and upped in trip on his recent return at Newcastle, seeing off all of his rivals bar a potentially smart newcomer. It is hard to make all of the running at Newcastle, and he saw off a couple of challengers before being caught by a closer, and Wise Glory is entitled to strip fitter for that now. Leicester is a better suited track to prominent runners and Wise Glory remains with potential.

20.25: Nasraawy (NB)

In the second division of that maiden half an hour later comes our next best bet in the shape of the John Gosden-trained Nasraawy. He started the even-money favourite for his racecourse debut at Newbury this month, but wasn’t as sharp as some of Gosden’s newcomers, awkward leaving the stalls and asked to come from much further back than the eventual winner. The step up to a mile and a quarter will suit on pedigree, and Nasraawy is the type that will have come on plenty for that experience.

17:55: Sandridge Lad (e/w)

Sandridge Lad completed a hat-trick at Southwell in February and has caught the eye from his much lower turf mark the last twice. He did best of those who raced prominently in a well-run race at Windsor on Monday, disputing the lead and only tiring in the final 100 yards. The drop to five furlongs is well worth a try given the speed he has been showing, and this track tends to suit prominent runners, so there is plenty to like about his chances.
