5:00 Catterick Winning Racing Tips (13th July) MARGARET AND TED THOMPSON MEMORIAL HANDICAP (CLASS 4) (3yo+ 0-85)

(FREEBIE) -Ten runners but only Mishaal is known as a front running type and ive got it marked up as a potential danger and if getting an uncontested lead it could improve on its recent poor form but this race might be high in class for it to win but I wouldn't discard its chances of making the frame. Steelriver comes out fifth top but hasn't won from eighteen attempts on grass and maybe needs further so perhaps get placed at best but then would need others to underperform, fourth top is Spirit Of Zeb but this one wouldn't want it to be really fast ground to show its best, I've got joint second top rated horses in The Hooded Claw who also might not appreciate fastish going and the bottom weight Brockholes who is the only three year old in the race so could have some improvement still to come and its only one pound under top spot which is MANATEE BAY 8/1 who can either track the leaders or be held up, if they decide to race against the rails the selection can follow Mishaal in stall five across and get a good position from which to attack later in the race but it is a very tight handicap and stakes will be kept to a reasonable level but its certainly not a race to go in too heavily stake-wise.
