Timeform on Cardano

Timeform pick out their best back, lay, and smart stat bets on Thursday...

B Fifty Two - 16:30 Ayr

B Fifty Two can gun down his many rivals in the big-field sprint handicap on the opening day of Ayr's Gold Cup meeting.

He's stood up really well to a robust campaign and put in another excellent shift when third under a penalty at Catterick last week. Racing off his correct mark here he's 3 lb lower and from a draw in the middle should give backers a good run for their money.

Thread of Silver - 14:50 Yarmouth

Thread of Silver looks set to be prominent in the betting for the fillies' novice over six furlongs at Yarmouth but there are reasons for taking on Charlie Appleby's charge. The Analyst selection Esprit Rose shaped like a sure-fire improver when third on debut at Haydock recently and it would be no surprise if she had her measure, while newcomer Jamaheery has a fantastic sprinting pedigree and could be capable of a big effort first time up.

Smart Stat
Cardano - 16:20 Yarmouth

32% Ryan Moore's strike rate at YARMOUTH (rides CARDANO)

In the absence of Volcanic Sky, Cardano makes plenty of appeal at Yarmouth and jockey Ryan Moore's stats only strengthen his claims. He's the last of three mounts for Moore on Thursday and the rider boasts a 32% strike rate at the seaside venue over the last five seasons and is 7/18 there in 2019. This isn't a race that will take much winning and Cardano can notch up a fifth success for Ian Williams.
