CHAMPION bush jockeys Greg Ryan and Robert Thompson are primed to continue their domination of Tamworth racing on Monday with a string of promising rides.

Ryan and Thompson sit first and second on the jockeys’ premiership at Tamworth after winning 39 races between them over the past 12 months

To put it in perspective, Samantha Clenton sits third on the premiership with nine wins.

But it’s not just the sheer volume of winners Ryan and Thompson have ridden. It’s also their strike rates.

Ryan has won 21 races from 82 rides for a winning strike rate of 25.6 per cent.

Thompson’s strike rate of 20.9 per cent comes from winning 18 of his 86 rides.

He might get first say at Tamworth on Monday with the Tony Newing-trained Danetat looking hard to beat in the opening race.

The Gosford galloper arrives at the Tamworth City Toyota Maiden after finishing seventh at Wellington over 1100m when resuming last start.

It was only Danetat’s second career run and his effort to finish around 3-1/2 lengths off the winner was strong given he was third last in a field of 13 and came widest on the turn.

Up to 1200m should have Dantetat settling closer to the lead.

Full Marks and Southern Delight shape as the hardest to beat.

Thompson has a well-bred chance in Beauty Is for astute Scone trainer Rodney Northam in the 2TM/92.9 Maiden Plate.

The three-year-old filly is by Redoute’s Choice out of Group 1 winner Absolut Glam. She only joined Northam’s stable recently after being educated by Gai Waterhouse at Randwick.

Last start Beauty Is finished second beaten a whisker over 1200m after looming up at the 50m mark. She goes up sharply in distance to the mile but had a solid foundation before her campaign kicked off.

Another well-bred horse lines up in the race as well — the Kris Lees-trained Kissed By The Sun — a daughter of Marrego, who is the dam of multiple Group 1 winner Eremein, winner of the Australian Derby and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Kissed By The Sun has had a more traditional preparation for the mile. She put up a solid performance when resuming over 1300m on a soft track and then finished second last time out over 1400m but never looked like winning.
