Alan Swinbank and Ben Curtis have formed a strong alliance in recent times, and their five year record at Thirsk reads five winners from 21 runners (24%, +31.50). In handicaps those figures improve to four from twelve (33%, +14.50).

They pair up with two handicap runners on Saturday – Final Venture and Kinema (4.40) – and it is the former that gets the SotD nod.

Final Venture has the highest speed rating in the field, is well drawn in twelve (see below), and seems to enjoy soft/heavy ground (placed on both occasions he’s faced it).

High draws have had the best of it at Thirsk on deep ground
