DRAGONS WILL RISE ATTEMPTS TO MAKE IT SIX WINS FROM HIS LAST EIGHT STARTS.

We send two to Thirsk on Thursday evening, where the going at the time of writing is good.

The prolific winner Dragons Will Rise has been declared for the 6.15.pm, a 0-70 handicap over the round mile. The handicapper has finally lost patience with Dragons Will Rise by raising him 6lb to 68, for his half length success at Pontefract 58 days ago. This is by far his toughest test to date, having now gone up 19lb since the winning spree began in March 2020. The going, and the trip are no problem, but his draw in stall 14 couldn't have been much worse. He also has a new partner for the first time in six runs, as Robert Havlin isn't available, he will be ridden by Harrison Shaw, for the first time.

Quoteline Direct is also the winner of five races, including a win here at Thirsk back in July 2016. He has done the majority of his racing most recently on the all weather, but is equally effective on turf. He goes to post at 7.45.pm, in a 12 furlong 0-60 handicap, with Jack Garritty, who has ridden him on three previous occasions in the saddle. Quoteline Direct has been below par on his last two starts, but has gone close to winning on four occasions at Wolverhampton since last November. His mark of 53 is one he can win off, and he just about sees this trip out.
