None. That Fontwell chase looks a moderate affair and I will leave it.
Horses of interest…
4.30 Catterick… Lackaday.. 6/1
I am interested to see how this one goes here. I was drawn in due to the pace- while he may not get an easy lead I think he will be up there and in the right spot. He is also a sprinter in form, who is fit, having returned for his new yard at Newcastle LTO. He ran well there and kept on. The horse just in front of him that day came and won NTO. Last year, for his old yard, he won this very race in decent fashion off OR 65 (with 5lb claim) and comes here today off OR58. He is undoubtedly well handicapped and it must be of some interest that his new connections send him here. He is 1/2 in C6 races on turf, this seems to be his level and his new trainer could get more out of him. Aged 5, he may not be done with yet. G Lee is 2/13,5p in C6 CD handicaps here,another positive. So, I thought there were a few pointers of interest there. 6s may just be ok, shame he isn’t bigger. I will have a small play in which to test out my ‘flat’ eyes.
In the last 5 years they are 4/10,7 places (inc wins) all runners at the track.
They have two today, Blue Suede 7s, and Snookered 12s
2.20 Blue Suede... looks most interesting, just based on that last run where he came second. There were 6 horses in that race, and he is the only one yet to run since. ALL of the other have won at least once. Indeed the other 5 have ran 18 times, winning 10, placing in another three. The winner came and won two since, his last victory in a C3 off OR88. That makes his mark of OR78 of interest here. That race is very ‘hot’ form and he looks worth a look to my dodgy flat eyes. The market may guide as to what is expected but you would think he will show himself to be much better than this mark in time, especially given how that nursery has turned out. Clearly 3yo only handicaps are fraught with danger, but he looks interesting.
That will be all for today.
