With the abandonment of Chepstow yesterday, we are left with the one jumps meeting at Catterick. The going at the North Yorkshire track is Soft and Good to Soft in places. A dry day with light winds is forecast.
Two races to quickly look at:
Pam Sly sends Walsingham Grange north and he sets the form standard.
Conditions are fine for him and I expect a prominent ride from Kielan Woods.
5/4 on my tissue which is just about in line with the market.
Treaty Girl jumps well, with latest second at Newbury on new year’s eve giving her a solid chance here.
Jockey Nico de Bonville takes the ride after a three month absence following a broken arm sustained at Cheltenham. I make Treaty Girl 9/4 to provide him with a comeback winner.
Plenty to go at tomorrow with cards from Sandown, Wetherby and Musselburgh.
Since we lost the meetings at Lingfield and Ayr earlier in the week, the slight ease in the ground has permitted a full racing programme to go ahead in the past few days.
Today Catterick report their going to be Good to Soft whilst the more exposed Chepstow is again on heavy ground.
Not much inspiration from today’s cards. One race to look at is the 3.25 at Catterick. Irish import Just Georgie was noted as one Sue Smith could progress after two good showings in points.
Ran a decent second behind a long odds-on favourite on Boxing Day at Sedgefield. Will appreciate the better ground and is expected to figure today.
4/1 on my tissue and just a half point above that at present.
Tomorrow we have Tea For Two and Bristol De Mai in opposition at Sandown. I will take an in-depth look on tomorrow’s blog post. Going conditions may be affected by the heavy rainfall forecast overnight.
3/1 winner yesterday made it seven winners from the last nine bets. Momentum is building as we head towards the Cheltenham Festival.
