JOHNB reckons the step up in distance will suit Teodoro on Thursday which he’s advising as a double stake.
Our man is also on a horse he’s backed before, Authors Dream, as he looks to bag a winner after drawing a blank on Wednesday to go 9pts down for May.
Johnb’s Thursday Tips
Authors Dream 2-1
Teodoro 6-1 NAP/NB (double stake)
No surprise to anyone that I have again gone for Authors Dream. I thought the horse was unlucky last time after being tipped at 10-1 before being gambled into 2-1 favourite, he was slow away last time and was still challenging for last place turning for home. He also had to come very wide round that last bend and was getting bumped, but he went on to lead a furlong out and was only just caught late on. The front two had pulled away from the others and with a better start and more luck in running he should be winning this as he is the horse open to more improvement. A change of jockey sees him running 6lb higher but that shouldn’t be a problem.
There have been a few recently but Richard Kingscote’s ride on Teodoro last time out was so bad at trying to disguise the fact he was only out for a run. It’s things like this that I like taking advantage of but because he did it so badly I think even the bookies could see it. If connections wanted to land a touch then they did exactly the right thing last time buy dropping him in distance when actually he wanted to go up in distance which he is on Thursday. Last time he was held up at the back in a slow run race and when the tempo quickened before the home straight he was just given a hands and heels ride. The step up to 9f will suit better, two runs ago he was beat by Stradivarius, never travelling well and weakened but also eased a furlong from home. On debut he was beat by another tip of mine recently in Atty Persse so his chances on form look excellent on Thursday and on a low mark of 69 he looks well in here.
