4:40 Catterick Racing Tips (14th May)

Horse Racing Tips
There's only Crosse Fire who is known as a possible pacesetter so could be dangerous with an easy lead but time-wise its not in my top 3, Straighttothepoint is 3rd top and it usually tracks the leaders so could make the frame, Extrasolar comes out 2nd best and did its best time over this c/d which makes it more dangerous but I've got SPIRIT OF WEDZA 7/1 at the top of my list and its another that likes to track the pacesetters and the trainer has a 1-3 record at this course so this one could add to his list.

Spirit Of Wedza 7/1 1st + EX £34.70 + TRI £336.90
Extrasolar 13/2 2nd
Straightothepoint 13/2 3rd
A nice looking class 5 sprint and I've got negatives against the bottom half of this field, Captain Lars has been in cracking form for a while now but may prefer further, there's only 2 known front runners in the field and they are my 2 top rated horses and there's only 2lb between Bosham in 2nd spot and MERRY BANTER 8/1 in top spot and they also have the 2 inside stalls but the selection has got the number 1 stall and if leading and getting control of the rails it ought to prove very hard to catch.

Merry Banter 8/1 1st + EX £41.20
Bosham 15/2 2nd
I've got negatives against a 3rd of the 9 runners, only 1lb separates Cartographer in 3rd spot and Open Wide in 4th, I've got SILENT ECHO 4/1 as my top rated and this one usually stays on strongly at this distance so may want a fast early pace but there's only LITTLE PALAVER 9/1 known to set the pace in the race and this one is only 1lb off top spot and if this one could set a slightly slower pace and then have plenty left to kick on nearing home and get 1st run on the field but i will have to back them both to cover both angles especially as both horses have good trainer/jockey stats.

Silent Echo 4/1 1st
Little Palaver 6/1 7th
