Thubiaan a surefire improver; SPREAD BETTING.

Thubiaan 2.30 York Buy at 7 on index Showed plenty of promise in three maidens before making short work of a modest bunch on fast ground at Pontefract last month.

A mark of 85 seemed reasonable on the balance of those runs for his handicap debut on good to soft at the Shergar Cup meeting two weeks ago and although only fourth William Haggas's colt was beaten a length at the line after seeing enough daylight throughout.

The way he was rallying close home suggests there could be significant improvement to come now he steps up to 1m6f for the first time and his staminaladen pedigree would appear to back that up.

The son of Dynaformer seems versatile where the ground is concerned and surely has place prospects at least as a favourably drawn, unexposed colt running off the same mark as last time. The yard is in cracking form, too, with 11 winners in the last 16 days.
