REYTA Finalist
Gold at Beverley

SPEED QUEEN THESME GOES FOR GOLD AT BEVERLEY

Thesme attempts to claim a significant prize in her career when she lines up in the big race at Beverley on Tuesday evening (June 20).

The five-year-old mare has been solely campaigned in Group races this season and is one of five declared runners for the £14,000 British Stallion Studs Weatherbys Hamilton EBF Conditions Stakes (7.00).

Thesme has some fine form in the book, most significantly when she finished fifth in the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes at York last August.

She has, though, not won since August 2015, with North Yorkshire trainer Nigel Tinkler keen to set the record straight at Beverley.

The Malton-based handler said: “She’s been a little bit disappointing this season, but she has worked very well since her last run at Haydock.

“Tom Eaves has ridden her at home and he’s been very happy with her, so that’s good to hear.

“She’s well in at the weights for the Beverley race, so that’s also a positive.

“The track might be a little bit stiff for her, but, on the other hand, fast horses do win at Beverley so we are pretty hopeful she’ll run well.

“This looks a really good opportunity for her and it will be a nice prize to win.”

The hat-trick-seeking Judicial (Julie Camacho) and popular veteran Hoof It (Mick Easterby) have also been declared for the British Stallion Studs Weatherbys Hamilton EBF Conditions Stakes.

Michael Herrington’s Doc Sportello and the Kristin Stubbs-trained Soie D’Leau complete the line-up in what should be a really informative renewal of the valuable Beverley sprint.

Last season’s race was won by Line Of Reason, who broke Beverley’s five-furlong course record when he defeated Red Pike by a length and a quarter.

Beverley’s six-race card begins at 6pm, with the going at the East Yorkshire circuit reported as good to firm – with watering taking place to maintain conditions.

The forecast for 70s Racenight Featuring Bus Stop at Beverley – the first evening meeting on the Westwood this year – is for sunny spells, cloud and highs of 17C.
