4:10 Catterick Racing Tips (25th July)

CATTERICK 4.10 (7.7)
There's very little between my top 3 in this race and they are all front running types and with 2 of them being ridden by apprentices they change positions so I will be looking to dutch this trio BOSHAM 3/1, DAPPER MAN 3/1 and MERRY BANTER 9/2.

Merry Banter 9/2 3rd
Bosham 6/1 4th
Dapper Man 9/2 5th
LINGFIELD 4.50 (8.5)
Only 7 runners and only 2 with recorded speed figures and I have a negative against all 7 runners, Very Honest is the only known front runner in the race so it could go well, in 2nd spot on my figures is Pretty Bubbles who always races as though further would suit it better so this race may not be run to suit its needs so CURIOUS FOX 2/1 becomes the selection and the negative against this ones name is that it doesn't want the going to be too firm but everywhere seems to water and many over-water so hopefully the conditions underfoot will be ok.

Curious Fox 9/4 1st
CATTERICK 5.10 (7.7)
The eagle eyed among you may have noticed this is Division 2 of a race and the 1st Division was omitted because there wasn't a horse that had recorded a figure this year and only 2 had figures from 2017 so its best left alone. This is a better race but the 3 at the top of my list are very closely rated, two have apprentices riding the other hasn't got an allotted jockey yet and I will look to dutch these 3 horses MITCHUM 5/2, LACKADAY 33/1 and DEBEN 10/1 but my stakes will be kept on the low side and the latter 2 will be each way bets.

Michum 16/1 6th
Deben 18/1 9th
Lackaday 33/1 Unp
SANDOWN 6.55 (7.7)
Not a bad class 4 race and I hope all 8 stand their ground and run, the top weight Outrage was running in much better races but hasn't shown anything much since 2016 and I couldn't back it till I see some life in it, KASBAH is 2nd top rated on its time when finishing 2nd at Salisbury 2 runs ago, its last run can be discounted as it tried an extra ½ furlong and didnt stay the trip so quickly dropped back down again here, my top rated WASEEM FARIS 5/1 won last time out over that extra ½ a furlong trip, it has also won at Salisbury in a nearly identical time as Waseem but it did a slightly faster time at Windsor but all of those were in 2017, I cant split them easily so I will go with backing them both.

Waseem Faris 14/1 1st
Kasbah 15/2 5th
