The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with two to follow on Thursday
William Haggas doesn't send many horses up to Carlisle, but boasts a decent 26 per cent strike-rate (11-42) at the course in the last five years and can enhance that with his only runner, Flamenco. I'm very sweet on this unexposed handicap debutant, who built on her first two runs in novice company when finishing fourth in what has turned out to be a decent maiden at Lingfield(first and third won since). The daughter of Showcasing did the best of those coming from the rear that day and was closing on the leaders at the line. The step up in trip will suit and this opening mark is very lenient given her potential.
Raise The Tempo (6.25 Tipperary)
Conor O'Dwyer's three-year-old filly may be underestimated in the market – available at 25-1 on the opening show – as her form doesn't look great on first inspection, but don't be fooled. Raise The Tempo was obviously not ready to win on her three maiden starts, but showed good improvement on handicap debut when given plenty to do at Dundalk in March. Given an 81-day break after that, she travelled really nicely to a point at Gowran Park over 1m1½f, but she didn't stay that day and was hampered late on. The less said about the ride she was given last time, the better and if put into the race here, she can almost certainly go close off a mark of 47.
