2:00 Catterick Racing Tip (23rd April) CATTERICKBRIDGE.CO.UK HANDICAP (CLASS 5) (4yo+ 0-70)

Four known pace setters in this field. Lady Poppy has only recorded slow times so doubtful it will be there at the finish. Chocamoca has also only produced slow times and another doubtful stayer at the business end of the race. Chosen One may prefer slower going and is also not in my top three rated. The fourth possible leader is TYFOS who is also my top rated and I'm hopeful it can be up the front from the off and stay there for the win and is available at 6/1.

SUMMARY: TYFOS at 6/1 is a reasonable bet. It is the second race on the card so it would be best to see for yourself what the going is before having a wager. If there's any cut in the ground then it's no bet. The other sprint is at Epsom 1.45 but the going there is described as soft and good to soft in places so I wont be betting there.
