Wednesday's Thirsk racing tips: Langholm looking to continue good form

Planet Sport tipsters are at Thirsk for Wednesday afternoon's card on June 29.

A rare outing to North Yorkshire for today's selection of red hot tips, should give you plenty time to get ready to bash the bookies.

Here's a quick run through of today's selections, you can follow all the racecards and results with Planet Sport's live race centre.

13:20 (Thirsk) Craven

13:50 (Thirsk) Jim's Cracker

14:20 (Thirsk) Breckland

14:50 (Thirsk) So Grateful

15:25 (Thirsk) Langholm

16:00 (Thirsk) Cairn Gorm

16:30 (Thirsk) Julia Augusta

17:03 (Thirsk) Amzaan

13:20 (Thirsk) Craven

Thirsk punters are advised to put their faith in Craven in the opening British Stallion Studs EBF Restricted Novice Stakes.

The fact the Havana Gold colt was a 25-1 shot on his debut for the powerful Richard Fahey yard suggests he was not well fancied at York, but he outran those odds to finish second to hot favourite Cold Case.

The winner had already shown a good level of ability by finishing second to the high-class Carmela on his introduction at Carlisle, so for Craven to get within a length and a half of him on the Knavesmire was a fair effort.

He should have no trouble going one better in North Yorkshire.

15:25 (Thirsk) Langholm

The Michael Dods-trained Langholm can continue his profitable campaign with victory in the Celebrating Racing's Workforce Handicap.

The six-year-old won here in April and doubled his tally for the season at Catterick last month, taking him to a career-high rating of 68.

While the assessor is bound to catch up with Langholm eventually, there was a degree of authority about his latest triumph and he should prove hard to beat on a course that clearly suits.

16:30 (Thirsk) Julia Augusta

Although we haven't seen Julia Augusta since December when she was an authoritative winner of a novice race at Kempton on debut, she's taken to pick up from where she left off.

Roger Varian looks to have given the daughter of Ulysses plenty of time to mature and this could be a springboard to bigger and better things.

The main danger appears to be Cubana Habana, who was an easy winner at Hamilton in May, while Positive Force has progressed with each run and is also worth considering.
