1—Smoothtalkinrascal is usually a hold up type but doesn't make my top six.
2—Doctor Parkes can be held up or track the leaders and is fifth on my figures.
3—Secret Missile usually likes to track the leaders and is only sixth on my ratings.
4—Piazon can track the leaders or be held up but its times are relatively slow.
5—Swiss Cross may prefer another furlong to show its best and not in my top six ratings.
6—Long Awaited recorded its best time at Ascot when tracking the leaders and is my third top rated
7—Sandfrankskipsgo did its best time here but that wasn't good enough to make my top six.
8—Monumental Man did its best time at Doncaster and is the most likely leader in the race.
9—Fair Value prefers to track the leaders and is second on my ratings.
10—Groundworker can be held up or track the early pace and my fourth top rated.
SUMMARY: A decent class three race over five furlongs with ten runners, Long Awaited 5/1 is my third top rated so ought to have place claims but isn't any value as an each way bet, second top is Fair Value 12/1 so another that ought to make the frame and is a decent price to back for a place but there is only one horse that has been known to lead, and that is MONUMENTAL MAN 8/1 and it is also my top rated, so if it gets an uncontested lead and saves some energy for the finish it could repel all challengers.
2:35 Catterick - A class five race over five furlongs with twelve runners and four runners that have been known to lead before and of these front runners, Rylee Mooch is my third top rated and Spring Bird who is my fourth top rated but does move up to third if you take off the seven pounds the apprentice is allowed to claim. My second top rated is Camanche Grey who may not want it to be too firm to show its best but it likes to track the leaders, top rating goes to PERFECT WORDS 7/1 and the jockey trainer statistics are quite good but the horse hasn't had a run for two hundred days which lowers my confidence slightly and stakes now have to be kept low.
Monumental Man 8/1 1st
Perfect Words 7/1 Unp
