Thirsk Itsakindamagic

Horse racing - Thirsk - 05 Jul 16:30

Itsakindamagic runs at Thirsk this afternoon and is a horse that caught my eye when bolting up in a maiden on the all weather at the end of March this year. He pulled hard for a long way in that contest and still won by 8 lengths. His trainer, Andrew Balding, is enjoying a fine season. Not having the largest of stables, he trained a winner almost every day during the final week of June and, as well as one of his horses winning yesterday, his 'Dark Shot' was only beaten a length in a decent race at Windsor on Sunday (13 ran). Count Octave also posted a cracking effort for Balding in the Queens Vase at Royal Ascot recently, on only its fourth run, finishing 2nd and beaten only a neck by a John Gosden horse near the top of the betting.

There are no stamina concerns this afternoon as the horse has already won over today's trip. Balding is taking his time with this horse (suggesting he likes him) giving him a decent break between each run and he has also stepped him up in class with each run, regardless of his finishing position.

His RPR is now 95 so the Racing Post are expecting a decent amount of improvement from his last outing. Interestingly the official handicapper has dropped him 2lbs, so to my eye, he looks to be very well treated

Only beaten 3 lengths on his last start (where he took a keen hold and was staying on at the finish). If he settles better today, he should be very much in with a shout at the business end of the race.

Track conditions should also suit, due to the fact he encountered todays conditions (good ground) on his first ever run, where he wasn't beaten far at all.

There looks to have been a decent amount of money for this horse already today, as he appears to have more than halved in price this morning.
