There is no doubt that Liam Harrison is a smart conditional jockey. He has the help of the powerful Fergal O’Brien yard behind him but he has also ridden winners for Ian Williams and Alistair Whillans in the last week.
With four winners from his last seven rides, Harrison is a rider in flying form, producing a profit of almost £18 to a £1 level stake in those rides since the 27th of June.
He heads to Market Rasen for just a single ride on Sunday for his boss. Five cards for our horse racing tips for the second half of the weekend with Ayr, Chelmsford, Limerick and Tramore all in action as well.
4.10 Market Rasen – Racing TV Handicap Chase
The only mount for Harrison on Sunday is He’s No Trouble in the 2m5f handicap chase. A gelding who didn’t really live up to his name when trained by Kim Bailey, he now makes his first start for the yard of Fergal O’Brien.
That trainer has a knack with horses arriving from elsewhere so this could be the best time to catch him, though as already alluded to, he does seem to be another Scorpion who lacks any consistency and gives that sire a bad name.
Undoubtedly talented, his two of his three wins under rules have come at Huntingdon which is a similarly speedy right-handed track to Market Rasen. His chase handicap win there came from 122, running off a two-pound higher mark here with Harrison taking off five.
A point winner the first time he ever set foot on a track, two of his three wins have come after breaks of 70 and 76 days so arriving fresh after 100 days off looks to be another positive. He is clearly not entirely trustworthy but with his yard in form, he has to warrant serious consideration.
