Timeform pick out their best back, lay and smart stat bets on Thursday...
"...the handicapper looks to have underestimated him with a 4 lb rise..."
Timeform on Pour Me A Drink
Pour Me A Drink - 19:35 Sandown
Pour Me A Drink was really strong at the finish when making a successful handicap debut over an extended mile at Haydock a month ago, landing some nice bets in the process, and the handicapper looks to have underestimated him with a 4 lb rise. He is expected to follow up with this even longer trip in his favour based on both pedigree and run style. Sameem is likely to give another good account from the front and is feared most.
Couldn't Could She - 15:50 Yarmouth
Couldn't Could She landed some nice bets at Brighton on Tuesday, building on earlier promise to open her account for the season under a capable 7 lb claimer. However, she is worth taking on now turned out under a 5 lb penalty and with a professional jockey back on board. The one to take her on with could be Lady Alavesa, whose current mark looks a lenient one and she has to be worth another chance given that the race didn't really pan out for her at Ascot last time.
Lord Lamington - 18:30 Sandown
2 - Mark Johnston's number of winners in past 9 runnings
Lord Lamington has showed improved for since having his stamina stretched in handicaps, winning at Newcastle and Chelmsford so far this season. His latest effort back at Chelmsford was too bad to be true, ridden over three furlongs out and weakening out of contention in the final furlong, possibly amiss. He is worth another chance to prove himself still on a fair mark returned to turf and his trainer has a good record in this race.
