Consistency Can Pay Off For Six Year Old
Iain Jardine's THORNTOUN CARE has been running well all year - the application of cheekpieces rather than blinkers has seemed to suit - and contests the Edgen Murray Handicap this afternoon with more than a decent chance of winning. He did just that three outings ago at Carlisle when beating Chauvelin half a length with Druid's Diamond and Bollin Ted, first and second in the same subsequent race since, back in placed positions. That was off 61 and he has been second and fourth since off today's 64 and Jamie Gormley, who has ridden him before, takes off seven. Reappearing after just four days and rated second behind FALCON'S FIRE on BTOPlus+ the gelding gets a couple of BTO's stat postives about trainer Jardine and has ground and distance to suit; he looks good at William Hill's 6/4.
