Trainer who’s 5/8 with 2yo’s at Thirsk sends one on a 416-mile round trip on Sunday

Thirsk has been a very happy hunting ground for David Evans, especially when it comes to juvenile runners. Evans has sent eight to the track in the last five seasons, returning with five winners for a strike-rate of 63% which has produced a level stake profit of  +£18.31.

That includes Choux who landed an almighty gamble here on her debut in May. 40/1 as the runners left the paddock, she was backed into 10/3 before running out a very comfortable winner. Evans sends another debutant to the track on Sunday, his only runner on the card taking the 416-mile round trip from his Monmouthshire base.

Market Rasen, Chester and Galway are the other three fixtures on Sunday afternoon for our horse racing tips to get stuck into.

1.50 Thirsk – Happy Birthday Jessica Todd EBF Maiden Stakes

Profit And Loss is the horse in question with Ben Curtis booked to take the ride. A half-brother to a nice handicapper of William Haggas’s called Mojito, that horse twice a winner of mile handicaps off marks in triple figures in his short career.

Mojito won second time up and this colt’s dam is a half-sister to a Group 3 and Listed placed mare who won on her debut. As such, there is enough in his pedigree to think that he is more than capable of being straight enough on debut to do himself justice.

He is drawn 15 which with the stalls in the centre of the track is out on a wing which isn’t ideal for a newcomer. That said, it is the stall closest to the stands rail and that could be a potential benefit for a juvenile. It is unlikely that the bookies are so generous with the chalk this weekend but the market is well worth watching very closely once more.
