2:20 Catterick Racing Tip - Pearl Noir 7/2 (9th June)

Horse racing at it best
CATTERICK 2.20
I would quite happily lay 6 of the 10 runners here, Perfect Words is 4th top and has ok stats, Mr Strutter is 3rd top but trainer is 0-4 here and the jockey 0-3 for this stable, 2nd top Thornaby Princess the jockey is 0-1 so not a negative yet but the trainers 0-22 here is scary, top rated is PEARL NOIR 7/2 who has decent stats and its the only known front runner in the race so I'm hoping it can lead all the way here.

Pearl Noir 7/2 4th
NEWMARKET 2.35
What should be a nice class 2 race but its a bit weak in my opinion with the top 3 in the handicap all having negatives against them at this course and distance on good to firm going and 4th in the handicap, EASTERN IMPACT 5/1 is one of my selections as my 2nd top rated, Baron Bolt is 4th best being 2nd in its last 2 runs, Bungee Jump is 3rd best but this step up by 2 levels after winning a class 4 last time out might find it struggling a bit but never say never and my top rated is ENGLISHMAN 10/1 who has won its last 2 races in class 4 but has raced competitively at this class before and deserves another crack at this higher level but its a race where i will look to make my profit on the lays rather than finding the winner so any stakes will be kept fairly low.

Eastern Impact 5/1 2nd
Englishman 33/1 9th
HAYDOCK 3.25
Now this does look like a good race, Doctor Sardonicus is 5th top and one of two front runners in the race, Muthmir is 4th top and is likely to run a big race at any time and could be around near the finish here, I've got joint 2nd top rated in Eqimou, who might find itself outclassed here, and Alpha Delphini, who could make the frame, I've got JUDICIAL 7/2 just 2lbs higher but its the other known front running type and if getting to the front could prove hard to catch.

Judicial 7/2 8th
HAYDOCK 4.35
If I knew for certain who would lead here I would have my nap horse for the day, its the usual mix in a race with some i will lay, some I doubt they will win but could be possible dangers, leaving me with 5 to concentrate on but 2 of these are a bit behind my top 3 ratings, Summerghand is 3rd top but this might not want the going to be too fast, Open Wide who likes to track the pacesetters is well weighted and comes out 2nd best, top spotted is REPUTATION 13/2 who can be held up or track the leaders and the jockey booking looks significant as he’s 3-12 on all this stables horses and 4-9 for the older horses which hopefully indicates connections are expecting a big run from their horse in this race, all I can hope now is that the tissue price (10/1) is accurate because it would be a cracking each way bet at that price.

Reputation 12/1 8th
