There's no shortage of racing action on Thursday with six meetings taking place across Britain and Ireland.

Thursday's Horse Racing Predictions

It kicks off at Warwick (12:10-15:30, jumps) before Salisbury (12:20-16:15, Flat), Clonmel (13:00-16:20, jumps), Ffos Las (14:08-17:35, jumps) and Fairyhouse (14:15-18:10, Flat) join in the afternoon's turf action. All-weather fare from Chelmsford (16:25-20:30) rounds off the day.

We've got three selections for punters to follow in Thursday's Racing Predictions.

15:10 Clonmel

Fred The Foot to win and each-way - BET NOW

Touch Of Oscar produced an improved showing over fences when landing a Navan handicap over 2m4f and backed that up when second to Jack Hackett at Punchestown on Tuesday. He's in good heart but has stamina to prove at this distance and is facing a third run in less a fortnight.

Fred The Foot meanwhile showed his best form in four chase starts when finishing second to the impressive Henry De Bromhead-trained winner Somptueux at Navan 12 days ago. John McConnell's charge gained all four hurdles wins at 2m6f-3m, so should be right at home over this extended journey. 

This trip should allow more time to get his fencing in order and, rated 134 over hurdles, he's got excellent prospects in this novice chase if that proves the case. 

15:40 Salisbury

Mini Milk to win and each-way - BET NOW

Having left Jonathan Portman to join the Brian Meehan team, Mini Milk made short work of her rivals to win over a mile at Kempton eight days ago. She had to squeeze through a gap at one stage but, once in the clear, Martin Dwyer's mount had far too much for her rivals. 

All of her previous runs had come at 1m2f-1m6f last year and - on the betting at least - nothing much was ever expected of her. Dropped to the bare mile, she took full advantage of a reduced mark of 55 on her all-weather bow. 

Having shown plenty of speed in that success, she drops back to 7f for this return to the turf and the 5lb penalty she carries may look lenient if she can reproduce that opening gambit for new connections. Very much the one to beat in this company. 

16:25 Chelmsford

Jacinth to win and each-way - BET NOW

William Haggas and Tom Marquand can team up to land the opening Fillies' Novice Stakes on the card with Jacinth. The New Bay filly looked in need of the experience on debut at Newbury in July but still managed to finish third behind the ill-fated but clearly very talented Fly Miss Helen. 

That was a good contest and she settled for the same berth back over the same C&D in August, form that has worked out regally well with the second, fourth and sixth scoring next time out and the winner, Alcohol Free, bagging the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket last Saturday.

Jacinth won't need to be anywhere near that level of form to pocket a first win on her all-weather bow but, with her trainer operating at a 32 per-cent strike-rate in recent weeks, it will be something of a shock if she cannot open her account now with this step up to 7f looking like a positive.
