Back Signoret @ 2.226/5 in the 14:00 at Thirsk

Back Gleneely Girl @ 5.85/1 in the 16:40 at Thirsk

Lay Secret Lightning @ 3.7511/4 in the 17:25 at Hamilton

We start off with the 14:00 at Thirsk where there has been good support for Signoret, backed in to 2.226/5 after opening at 3.38. The Richard Fahey-trained filly has run well in handicaps recently and this six furlong maiden looks fairly weak on paper. She steps back up to her optimum distance today after a lesser effort over an inadequate five furlongs and she looks to have been found an ideal opportunity to get off the mark.

Staying at Thirsk and the 16:40 for our second back of the day, Gleneely Girl, after a move in from 9.28/1 to 5.85/1. A switch back to the turf certainly looked as though it was required when a much improved fifth at Beverley last time and a repeat of her performance in a 7f nursery at Goodwood when finishing third last August would hopefully be enough to see her come home in front today. At the odds she certainly looks worth chancing.

We head to Scotland and the 17.25 at Hamilton, for today's lay, Michael Appleby's filly Secret Lightning, who has been on the drift all morning from 2.9215/8 to 3.7511/4. Support for the maiden Moon Arc suggests Secret Lightning won't have it all her own way and, stepping up to 1m1f for the first time, we hope lightning doesn't strike twice with her following up from her win last time out at Thirsk. The form of that race does not look to be the best and, with her previous efforts being very disappointing, she certainly looks worth opposing at a short enough price.
