We love the ladies here at bookies.com and are proud sponsors of three races at Carlisle’s all-girl jockey evening meeting – the ultimate Ladies’ Night!

The 5f Compare Horse Racing At bookies.com Ladies Riders’ Handicap (due off 6.45pm) has drawn the biggest field with 17 set to go to post, and it’s fair to say that most are hard to win with. There’s only one last-time-out winner amongst them, the Tim Easterby-trained filly Penny Royale, and the fact she was lady ridden when getting home by half a length over this trip at Thirsk has to be seen as a positive – amateur Emily Easterby takes over from 5lb claimer Hannah Worrall here. However, given her career record of 2-24 she’s far from certain to back that up in what is a more competitive race and, besides, might struggle to confirm form with the runner-up TINSILL.

Nigel Tinkler’s charge is slightly worse off at the weights this evening (when taking jockey claims into account), but he will benefit from professional handling, with Shelley Birkett coming in for the ride, and this stiffer 5f on slower ground could be just what he needs to get his head in front. He’s now hit the crossbar on his last three starts, finishing strongly on each occasion, and all three have come at much sharper tracks than this and on quicker ground, which makes it harder for him to play catch up. While he was beaten four and a half lengths in last year’s race, he was rated 6lb higher then and also met with trouble in running, so a much better showing is expected.
