The Punt Daily: Tom Collins' free horse racing tip on Thursday afternoon
An opening mark of 80 looks extremely fair for Buoyant, who was unlucky not to make a successful start at Windsor in July (eventual scorer has won twice since). Buoyant then went to Ascot with winning hopes but bumped into the extremely talented Ehraz, who was tried in Group 3 company next time up. Another Shadwell-owned runner, Ribhi, denied him at Salisbury last time in an above-average maiden and has subsequently earned a mark of 101. On that basis, Buoyant should have plenty in hand off his initial handicap rating.
