Four horses have been known to lead before: Dissent is quite versatile with its running style, Brother Tiger can lead or be held-up and Clearing, who's preferred style of running is to lead but is still only fourth on my figures, while fourth possible leader Royal Aquisition is my second top rated. Third top is Arctic Lynx who will either track the leaders or be held-up. EXPOSE 9/1 is top rated. This horse is usually held-up and with all the early pace it could be set up for the hold-up, strong-finishing sort and its worth an each way bet.
4:15 Catterick - Nine runners with two horses that could lead. Red Cape has only produced slow times but the other possible leader is Meandmyshadow who is also my second top rated. The fourth top rated, Perfect Blossom, and third top, Pettochside, are only two and one pounds below my second top so it should be fairly close for the places. Top ranked with a few pounds in hand on my figures is LAYLAS HERO. I'm not the only one who thinks it's well in here as it's the 11/4 favourite.
5:15 Catterick - Fifteen runners in a low class race but six of them have registered a figure on my graphs. It could be a very fast run race because there are eight horses that have been known to lead before. Only my second top rated, Irish Gals Spirit, from my top five, isn't known to lead. Fourth top is Bosun Breese, while third ranked is Igenti. My top rated is LOST IN PARIS 20/1. It's a big price because it has not been in the best of form but it wasn't that long ago, October last year, when it run in class three races and this is its first run in a class six race. I'm hoping this lowly affair will bring about a revival of form and at the price I'm prepared to have a small each way wager.
EXPOSE 9/1 5TH
